Norman Hetherington & Mister Squiggle

At Huttcon 1990 I watched Norman and his daughter Rebecca enthral an audience of 400 adults with a Mister Squiggle Show. In 1999 I attempted to get him to appear at Aussiecon 3, but the ABC had him solidly booked up over that period for Mr. Squiggle's 40th Anniversary.

I was privileged to meet Norman on a couple of occasions, and to once have a two hour phone conversation with him. He was every bit as gentle and lovely a man as the character of Mr. Squiggle.
