Well, I am amazed!
I emailed Mike Barrier, a writer and historian of animation from the USA, regarding Wilfred.
He emailed me back today. He has known of Great Uncle Wilfred for a number of years but unfortunately did not know much about him.
He is going to post a query on his website to see if any visitors know more.
I really can't believe my luck on this! Hopefully he will be able to dig up something interesting!
All I have to do now is wait for a response from Disney and the other guys I emailed!!!!
Watch this space!
