By Roya Nikkhah
“Mr Butcher has been collecting since he was a child, but recently attracted worldwide attention after setting up a website to sell some of the tens of thousands of items that he has amassed over the past 40 years. E-mails have flooded in from as far as Australia, Japan and Brazil.
…Striking though the website is, however, it is nothing compared with Mr Butcher’s house – which has become a shrine to his hobby. The sitting room houses more than 9,000 cartoon figures on shelves that cover every inch of the walls.”
