How great was Mr Benn?
The character Mr Benn was based on a picture taken by photographer Micaela Mitchell called The Business Man.
Mr Benn lives in London at 52 Festive Road, which was inspired by Festing Road in Putney where David McKee used to live. McKee also cites one of his influences as Dartmoor, Devon, home to a famous British prison in the somewhat bleak surrounding moorland.
