Mr. Happy Gets His Very Own Stamp

Along with the rest of his Mister Men and Little Miss gang, as Royal Mail unveils new stamp set.

To celebrate 45 years since Mr. Happy, Mr. Grumpy and all the rest of the cheery (or maudlin) gang first arrived on the scene, Royal Mail has released a special ten-stamp set.

Created by Roger Hargreaves in 1971, the beloved characters have become an integral part of British heritage, spawning a plethora of television shows and merchandise. Hargreaves created the books after his young son Adam asked him what a tickle looked like, and since then 50 Mr Men and 36 Little Miss books have been published.

Hargreaves’s son Adam, who took over after his father died in 1988, said: “I think my father would have been chuffed. It’s a real accolade for the Mr Men and Little Miss characters to be on a Royal Mail stamp.”

The stamps are available from Royal Mail, and there are a variety of options: from a presentation set telling the Mr. Men story, to a simple collectors’ sheet and postcards.

Philip Parker, of Royal Mail, said: “The Mr Men and Little Miss characters are a worldwide phenomenon. People identify with the different character traits, and we hope these stamps will brighten up sending and receiving mail.”
