Latest Google Doodle celebrates Mr Men creator

Google's ever changing Doodle has a habit of putting a smile on our faces...

Who can forget the magical yet unexplained flying balls, the playable Pacman game, or most recently the silent video dedicated to the late, great Charlie Chaplin?

The Google Doodle smile train continues today with the search giant returning us all to memories of our childhood in celebration of the 76th birthday of Roger Hargreaves, the English author and illustrator who created the Mr Men books.

Users can refresh the home page to see no less than 16 doodles, with images ranging from Mr Forgetful to Little Miss Tiny. 

The story of the Mr Men books came from the creator's son Adam Hargreaves asking what a tickle looked like. His father drew a figure with a round orange body and long arms, giving birth to the now loved and globally known Mr Tickle.

Sadly Roger Hargreaves died from a stroke in 1988 at the age of 53, with son Adam taking the reigns of the Mr Men empire which continues to put smiles on children's faces all over the World.

Everyone's favourite stories have also been adapted into four animated television series, the most recent of which aired on Channel 5 in 2008 and 2009. A movie is apparently rumoured to be in the pipeline.
