Bonzo, an adorable mutt, was created by artist George Studdy and began his quest for world fame back in 1922. A pudgy little pup with huge ears, one black and one white, and a stubby little tail, Bonzo has captured the world through his hilarious adventures in films and on post cards.
Perhaps that is the key to Bonzo dog collectibles — humor. Whether enjoying the last dregs from his master’s whiskey glass, or eyeing a pretty girl, we can all somehow relate to Bonzo’s human-like emotions and laugh at the peccadillos he manages to get himself into.
The variety of Bonzo dog collectibles is another factor that makes them so strongly desirable even today. Do you collect China figures? Bonzo dog collectibles include many lively China figures of this mischievous pup. How about antique games and puzzles?

Vintage advertisements have long been a staple in the collectibles industry, and Bonzo dog collectibles can be found in this category too.

Perhaps some of the most fertile Bonzo dog collectibles are the more than 500 designs of postcards George Studdy created of Bonzo through the years.
Bonzo even helped create another collectible pal; Ooloo the cat. This character looks suspiciously like his predecessor Bonzo, dressed in black fur and a cat tail, and became George Studdy’s new star as Bonzo was retired before he wore out his welcome.
Undoubtedly though, the crowning jewels of Bonzo dog collectibles are the 26 films produced from 1924 through 1925. Each of these 10-minute animated vignettes catalog another humorous, if silly, adventure of everyone’s favourite pup, and were widely popular around the world.
