    In this print by Lester Hall the gollywog character from Enid Blyton bestrides the New Zealand landscape. Hall says _I had a Golly when I was a little boy and I loved it the most. I was very hurt when he was made an evil, racist character as he was part of my family_. When media personality Paul Holmes was pilloried in the press after using the term _Cheeky Little Darkie_ in an ironic way to describe the then secretary general of the United Nationsl Hall couldn't resist appropriating the phrase to reference the politically incorrect children's toy.
