"Mr Squiggle, the man from the moon"

A little bit of Australian television nostalgia.

I've taken these photos from my window display.

Mr Squiggle

Created by Norman Hetherington.

He's looking good for someone who started his career back
in 1959, sadly he disappeared from television in 1999.

Blackboard and Mr Squiggle's Transport

Unlike Humphrey Bear and many other popular children's
characters, there was very little Mr Squiggle merchandise - which
makes these Mr Squiggle dolls a nice item to own.

This is how I remember watching Mr
Squiggle, in black and white.

 I don't think my attempt at a rocket would
safely get Mr Squiggle and Blackboard to the moon
and back in one piece. The rocket will be dismantled soon
as hubby wants his metal hose coil back and I've ruined a
perfectly good webcam just for decoration.

For everyone that has sent an email re my new blog
about my ancestors / family history, it's coming along
slowly as I still have a lot of research to do and
confirm. I'm hoping by the end of this month to have the
blog up and running, not sure if this was the best idea but
I've decided to take on another related University
course, so I've set aside a few hours each night for
family history research.
With a bit of effort I should make my deadline.

It's not important to win, it's important to
make the other guy lose. -Anonymous
