Happy Birthday Rupert
« on: November 08, 2020, 11:17:40 AM »

A little bear is celebrating a very big birthday: Rupert has turned 100. To commemorate the milestone, the anthropomorphic adventurer has been honoured by the Royal Mail in a set of eight stamps.

Rupert first appeared in the Daily Express on 8 November 1920, as Little Lost Bear - the work of illustrator Mary Tourtel.

The character, whose famous red jumper was originally blue, was part of the newspaper's push to attract new readers.
