- What is the name of the Children in Need mascot?

- The teddy bear originates with a toy manufactured to honour US President Theodore Roosevelt, and an incident that happened when he was out hunting one day. What was this incident?
a. He engaged in hand to hand combat with a bear
b. He refused to shoot an injured bear captured for him
c. He was ferociously attacked by a bear
b. In 1902, Roosevelt’s attendants chased and eventually captured a bear that had put up a brave struggle to survive against the men and their dogs. Badly injured, and almost dead from its wounds, the bear was tied to a tree. The President was then brought to the poor creature and invited to shoot it himself to claim the bagging rights. An indignant Roosevelt refused point-blank to carry out such a despicable act, but ordered instead that the poor creature be immediately put out of its suffering by someone else. When the papers got hold of this story and printed it everywhere, a Russian Jewish emigrant, who owned a candy store and made stuffed toys at night, decided to make a stuffed bear to honour this act. So the little teddy bear was born.
- How did the Pooh part of Winne the pooh come about?
a. From blowing flies off his nose
b. It was a short form of Poohrzynski
c. He aways panted when he was hot
a. Pooh, as he was often called for short, first appeared in the 1924 story “When We Were Very Young”. In this we find the explanation for Winnie’s full name: “But his arms were so stiff … they stayed up straight in the air for more than a week, and whenever a fly came and settled on his nose he had to blow it off. And I think – but I am not sure – that that is why he is always called Pooh”.
