Hey, it’s 9th of May! As reminded by Google, today is the 76th Birthday of Roger Hargreaves, a famous children books cartoonist and illustrator who made the popular work of decades such as Mr Men and Little Miss that inspired the childhood of many in the 20th century. His books were then made into tv cartoon series after being sold for millions of copies in 20 languages worldwide. The colorful and lively characters reminded me of happy childhood memories with countless stories and toys.
Watching the cartoons of Mr Happy and Mr Forgetful brightened my day like flowers in the air. =) Some of the special things that made it diverse from current entertainment sources are the slow but lively pace of the illustration and a simple but contented feeling it expresses with positive values. As one of the video was commented by a Youtube user: “Every Mr. Men and Little Miss have very unique personalities. They also have rhythm in their hearts, too!” I was infected by it to smile. =)
Thanks Youtube for giving us an alumni for gifted video sharing.
