Description

Originally created by artist and illustrator Mary Tourtel, Rupert Bear first appeared in the Daily Express newspaper on November 8 1920.  he is certainly one of the most recognisable bears with his checked yellow trousers, scarf and red jersey.

Rupert was created for The Express newspaper in a bid to rival the Teddy Tail cartoons, which were published in the Daily Mail.  It wasn't long before Rupert took over as the nation's favourite.
