Daily Doodle : Mr Benn

I used to love watching Mr Benn. In fact I own a record bag with a felt depiction of the mysterious shopkeeper on its side. Mr Benn lved in the very mundane but wonderfully named "Festive Road" (at number 52) and often popeed into the Fancy Dress shop that would lead him to some adventure as he stepped through its door. Dragons and knights, chefs and clowns,cowboys and pirates were all subjects in this wonderful cartoon that only had 13 episodes made. So I was overjyed today when I found that today's daly doodle subject was Mr Benn...
