Or then we might end up guessing male children's books authors for days without hitting the right answer... Razz You know, it might be something we've got no clue about. I've spent many hours on a site that has information about different writing systems. It was fascinating - but was no help with this one... I'm beginning to think that Marmaduke has invented this himself or made a combination of several already existing ones. If he invented it, there must be a key to it somewhere, or it has a logic that can be found if you just keep looking at it. If he didn't invent it, the writing system (or its parts) should be found somewhere in the web... But then again all my so called good guesses could be wrong... Suspect

I thought of her too after someone suggested Moominpappa - but then thought that the person we're trying to find here was male... Question

Well, of course I can't be sure that it really is a man... I'm just founding my assumption on the clue #2:

Marmaduke wrote:2) he has no relation to the My Fairy App Sad

I thought there were actually two clues here: that he has no relation to the app AND the gender. On the other hand I'm not sure if the word "he" can sometimes be used without specifying the gender; English is not my native tongue so I might lose a lot of nuances... Finnish pronouns are always the same whether it's a man or a woman you're talking about so I might hear the difference between he and she a little too loud.

All right... Now that we know it's not a woman there's not a lot of options left, right... Just about half of the humankind, lol! Not to mention all the fictional characters that haven't been ruled out yet...

Maybe it's just somebody who likes to wear top hats - Scrooge McDuck perhaps? No, I'm clueless, and my math books are calling me...

And only when I went back to the question to look at it again, did I remember clue number 3:

Marmaduke wrote:3) the most significant similarity between this person and Moominpappa is that they are both male and have both appeared on television.

no ideas.

The third clue was added after my quoted message, we know now it's a man for sure. Smile No ideas here either; Dr. Snuggles perhaps?

It might help, Marmaduke, if it's not cheeky of me to suggest it, if you would do the old "warm", "cold", "red hot" type of thing in response to our guesses. Then we'd know which route to pursue. If this is ever going to end. If you want it ever to end... Question

good idea, i think i'll do that^_^
although i will only be answering on the guess of person right?
also i'm not entirely sure who's hotter out of say, Harry Potter or Dr. Emmet Brown, but here goes.
let's include the previous six guesses...

cold
Suef wrote:Harry Potter
colder
Liz wrote:Dr. Emmet Brown
same coldness
Suef wrote:Dr. Snuggles
don't know but i'm guessing that that's seriously ice-age type cold
Mercon wrote:Alfred Hitchcock
warmer than Dr. Snuggles^_^
is that the way it works? err, i didn't count them so i don't know if that's six either, err, sorry:( i reckon if you get Mel Gibson and Alfred Hitchcock to have a mongrel child then the result will probably be the warmest yet^_^ but that's the way i see it...

hmm, well, i'm not sure as ever but i'd say Rolf Harris is warmer then Rod Hull, yes i'm pretty certain that that makes sense.
i think you've got the right sort of hair in mind there (grey)^_^

nope, he is i'm sure, older than 70 though, actually, as far as i'm concerned, there is a passing resemblance there, though i'm sure everyone else will deny it...
err, warmer?
hmm, maybe the same warmnessdom.
