Google Doodles Mr. Men Series

It's the 76th birthday of Roger Hargreaves, creator of the Mr. Men series, and Google's celebrating it by churning out my favourite Doodle yet. They've made a different doodle for different Mr. Men characters, including Mr. Slow, Mr. Happy, Mr. Messy, Little Miss Chatterbox and Little Miss Naughty. So everytime you go to the Google homepage, you'll see a different Doodle for a different character.

Roger Hargreaves was born on the 9th of May, 1935 in England. He came up with the Mister Men books when his son, Adam, asked him what a tickle looks like. He replied saying a round orange body with long, rubbery arms. This then led to his first book, Mr. Tickle. He had 46 Mr. Men books and 33 Little Miss books. After his death, his son, Adam, carried on the Mr. Men series.
