Who doesn't love Mr Tumble? While the television show is aimed at a younger audience and specifically suited to children with special needs, it has some major adult fans too. Justin Fletcher, the man behind the red nose and bright costume has been awarded with an MBE, three Baftas and he has some famous fans of the show too including Simon Pegg, Gary Barlow, Peter Kay, Michael McIntyre and Johnny Depp.
Justin was recently interviewed in the Independent, he said he saw himself as a pre-school Mr Bean. There is no doubt that he is loved by every child who watches his show and many of the mums and dads too. It’s clear he has a brilliant capability of coming up with his unique characters that are so appealing to youngsters. He is able to communicate to them on many levels and he loves what he does.
Before creating Mr Tumble Justin had already come up with lots of loveable characters for CBeebies and appeared on shows such as Tikkabilla, Higgledy House, Gigglebiz and of course his other major hit Justin’s House. He was also the voice of Jake in the Tweenies and performed the vocal talent in Shaun the Sheep!
We are certainly huge fans of Justin here at Golden Bear Toys, do you love him too?
