A PROFILE OF RUPERT BEAR: On November 8, 1920, one of the most enduring and well-loved children's characters in British fiction made his first appearance in the Daily Express. In the loving hands of creator Mary Tourtel, Rupert and the timeless world of Nutwood introduced children to a world of fairies, wizards, unicorns and adventure. In 1935 the Daily Express decided that there were enough Rupert adventures to collect them all together in one volume, making an annual. During the height of Rupert's popularity in the 1950's sales of the Rupert Annual topped 1.7 million. Today the Rupert Annual is still one of the top ten annual titles sold. Rupert's adventures in the Daily Express continue up to this day and in 2010 he celebrated his 95th anniversary. The original character of Rupert was molded to suit a basic narrative pattern whose shape and psychological intention has not changed over the years. The story of a child venturing from a safe home to a wider world and returning safely is fundamental in many children's stories. Rupert enjoys a safe, cozy home life. He has doting parents who are supportive of him in everything that he does, no matter how daring or dangerous, and who only get mildly anxious when he comes back late from one of his expeditions. Rupert is the ideal son, obedient, considerate, and warm hearted with a natural curiosity and an anxiety to please everyone. But just like any other child of his age (7-8 years) he can be vulnerable, get upset and reduced to tears. Early Rupert stories were rooted in fairy tales, nursery rhyme and legend. His adventures took place either in a fairy tale world of talking animals, magicians and monarchs, or in a world of chivalry where knights rode noble steeds and very much fitted into the writing genre of 1920's children's books. However, the story lines have moved with the times and those fairy tale worlds have now given way to more adventurous ones where Rupert may also meet pirates, crooks and smugglers. Rupert has a vast array of friends and mentors, Bill Badger, Edward Trunk, Podgy Pig, Willie Mouse, the Rabbit Twins, the Fox brothers, dragons, magicians, fairies, imps, elves, unicorns and wizards all play their part.
