"Make someone happy with a phone call" -- General Post Office

Life Before Monkey. Before Flat Eric even, there was Buzby, an advertising mascot whose existence I'd totally forgotten about until I saw these photographs.

That's my Dad in the white cardigan, me in the red jumper and we're at the Liverpool Show in the 70s. This is what the current revolution in telecommunications is missing. A giant yellow bird voice by Bernard Cribbins.

    "Oh Buzby, you are a naughty boy."

    There were some short Buzby story books, a la the Mr Men, on sale for a bit. I remember one where he bought a skateboard and ended up in hospital.
