Roger wrote Timbuctoo with animals in a shape of a Mr Men
(including the unusual hats and shoes common to Mr Men) called Snap! (the croc) Growl (a bear) Meeow! (a cat,
who wore a hat the same as Mr Uppity) Woof (a dog) Quack (a duck, who wore the same shoes as Little Miss Neat)
Sniff (a rabbit) Roar (a lion) Squeak (a mouse)etc... This has been made recently into several good short animation
with the voice of Ronnie Corbet- a comedian from the British Comedies The two Ronnies and Sorry!
These characters not only had there own books roughly the same shape as the Mr Men but also appeared
in the comic and annual of Pippin. Pippin had characters of Dr Snuggles, Morph, The Munch Bunch, Ivor the Engine,
Mary, Mungo (the dog) and Midge (the mouse) and other Children's Tv favourites!
