This very rare 1930s Pixyland depiction of the Teddy Tail white mouse cartoon character wears a red jacket with white trousers, shirt and tie. Only a handful of these figures are known to exist. Figure measures 5.75 cms / 2.25 inches
Teddy Tail was a cartoon mouse featured in The Daily from 5 April 1915 and was the first daily cartoon strip in a British newspaper (being also the first to use speech balloon rather than captions). The character survived until the 1960s with several artists drawing him for newspaper strips and various annuals. The popularity of Teddy Tail was the inspiration for the Daily Express to create Rupert Bear and the Daily Mirror to invent Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.
in very good original condition with a certain amount of paint loss that does not detract from this rare figure
