Animation director Peter Dodd shows Raymond Briggs the character sheets that he has been working on. He was thrilled with the progress being made.

Peter reported: …he viewed the model sheets of his parents and seemed genuinely over the moon “yes that’s bang on” he said.” And of the ones of Raymond himself? “That really looks like me” he said of his moustachioed self, but commented on his regret at ever having grown one.
