Buzby, the multi-coloured bird, was the hero of a long running British Post Office Telephones publicity drive during the late 1970's to early 1980's. He appeared in a series of television commercials where his punch line was "Make Someone Happy". The television commercials featured the British character actor Bernard Cribbens as Buzby's voice.
