Post Alpha Bits
Jack E. Leonard (1962-early 1963) was Alpha Bits first postman. He was a real-life comedian represented in cartoon form. Jack was replaced by Post-man Lovable Truly (voiced by Bob McFadden) in 1964 and delivered Alpha Bits' letters until 1971. (Get it?). Both were illustrated by R.C. Traverse.

Jack E. Leonard only had a one year contract. When the contract was up, they had to get him off the box. They temporarily replaced him with the Sailor Boy and then went back to the Postman concept. The first Lovable Truly was less masculine upon arrival. Shortly thereafter he was given a bigger chest, bowed in belly and more masculine shoulders.
