Edit; "In 1987 English cartoonist and illustrator Michael "Mike" Payne approached Carte Blance Greetings Ltd with a sketch of his Tatty Teddy character, under the alias of Miranda. This was developed into the range formally known as the Me To You Bears. Payne chose the alias Miranda as it was the name of a houseboat he had holidayed on with his family. The "Miranda" signature previously printed on all Tatty Teddy illustrations has now been replaced by "Tatty Teddy x", or simply "T x".
Since Mike Payne left Carte Blanche Greetings, Tatty Teddy has been further developed and illustrated by several different artists. He is now drawn by a team of four artists; Steve Mort-Hill, Ceri Lewis, Shane Smith and Tom Barnfield."
