No, not Murdoch, the other one.

Paddington wasn't born, and Winnie was always regarded as a bit of a wimp, or cissy in those days, so it was Rupert I was brought up with.

He introduced me to reading, poetry and newspapers on a daily basis.

Who can forget the Likely Lads episode where they nearly came to blows over Algy Pug?

"Rupert is 90."

I know how he feels!!

And he never changed his clothes once in 90 years!

Quickbeam -- perhaps HE should be Pooh bear then !!

I let all fireworks and sparklers off yesterday, so it looks like a cherry cake and a couple of candles for Rupert's celebrations, with Muffin the Mule in attendance.

Whoops, forgot to mention Bill And Ben plus Little Weed ;o)

I remember throwing a wobbly when I was about 8 in the early seventies because I wanted to watch Rupert the Bear and my sister wanted to watch The Partridge Family - David Cassidy probably. She's older than me, so she won!

I remember the black / white /red Rupert Bear books of the 1940's

"a wobbly when I was about 8 in the early seventies"
Ah, the days before video recording. I remember one year when the BBC and ITV had 'The Towering Inferno' and 'Earthquake' as their Christmas blockbusters and we had to draw lots to vote which would be watched!

Many many moons ago I was on a driving holiday in Europe and we were driving through the stunning alpine scenery. To which I was apparently oblivious glued to my Rupert annual in the back of the car.
Ninety years old and still living with his parents who must be getting on a bit now.

Time to get your own back on your sister. click here

So far as I recall, Rupert didn't do drunk driving.
