Pip, Squeak and Wilfred were a trio of cartoon characters created by Bertram Lamb that were popular in Britain in the 1920s, appearing in a cartoon strip in the Daily Mirror after the end of World War One (1914-18).

The characters

Pip (a dog), Squeak (a penguin) and Wilfred (a young rabbit) were three orphaned animals from different backgrounds who banded together to form a makeshift family unit. Appearing in around ~1919, the trio captured the British public's affection and let people see their feelings of loss and dislocation after the personal and social turmoil of WW1 acted out by three brave creatures who optimistically stuck together and helped each other to create a new life after surviving their own personal tragedies.

The success of the characters led to a range of merchandising, books, annuals and silent animated films, and to the three WW1 serviceman medals being unofficially nicknamed Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.
