Official UK Biography Information
Father Hubert Alan Huckleberry is a ‘wordsmith’ who loves finding out the meaning of names and new words. He was especially pleased to discover his name means ‘Bright minded’.
Mother Hatty Huckleberry is a very level headed and practical lady who knows what she wants. Hatty means ‘House Ruler’ which is just what she is in the Huckleberry household!
Brother Dennis Huckleberry is strong minded about what he will and will not eat; his diet consists of five things and five things only! Dennis means ‘Belonging to the god of wine’, but his parents think it should have been …the god of whine.
Sister Esme Huckleberry’s name means ‘Beloved’, a suitable name for daddies little sweet heart. Her love of words is only matched by her father’s.
Twin Babies Jethro and Cordelia Huckleberry, are very different little babies. His name means ‘Superiority’, but in fact he is a lovely, quiet little boy. Her name means, ‘Warm-hearted’, but she is always ready to argue.
The hound dog family was also released in Japan and includes a standing baby. In the UK line, a standing baby came with the Nursery Figures set. Each baby in the set is wearing the blue nursery school uniform. I need to find him!
The Huckleberry Hound Dogs take their name from the animated character Huckleberry Hound, who starred in his own television program, beginning in 1958 (from Hanna-Barbera). The Huckleberry Hound Show won an Emmy in 1960. Another popular animated character, Yogi Bear, got his start on Huckleberry’s show. Huckleberry Hound continues to be part of popular culture and has appeared on other animated programs, including “Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law” and “The Simpsons”.
Both Huckleberry family of four and the set of twins can be purchased from the Sylvanian shop. Sadly, the Nursery Figures set (with the UK standing baby) is a bit harder to find. EBay is probably the best place to look.
The Huckleberry family has been entered in the Greenbearshire wiki. Thank you for visiting!
