Today's topic for Sunday Stamps II is cartoons or children's drawings. This is one of my favourite themes... So it has been hard no to show one hundred stamps in this post!
These were issued by Royal Mail on January 2014 to celebrate 12 much-loved children characters on TV. Each decade since the 1950s is represented in this issue.
Have you noticed that each character breaks out of the border? Most of them are/were not very famous in my country. But Postman Pat and his cat Jess have appeared more than once on this blog.
Ivor the Engine worked in top left-hand corner of Wales from 1959; Andy Pandy was first screened in 1950; Mr Benn appeared in 1971.
I have received four of them. I would not mind to receive the rest, but I am not sure if they are still available. The rest of the characters are:
-Dougal - The Magic Roundabout
-Windy Miller - Camberwick Green
-Great Uncle Bulgaria - The WomblesPaddington Bear
-Bob the Builder
-Shaun the Sheep
