Bonzo's dud show by George Studdy

Bonzo's dud show. He had been expecting first prize, but loses out to two pedigree dogs, a bull terrier and a bulldog. George Ernest Studdy (1878-1948), was the creator of 'Bonzo', a small dog with saucer-like eyes and indiscriminate breeding who first appeared in the Sketch in 1922. The 'Bonzo' craze swept the world resulting in postcards, annuals, toys and other merchandise. Credit should read: Estate of George Studdy/Gresham Marketing Ltd./ILN/Mary Evans Date: 4 July 1923
