He must be on the extreme side of ugly,
as he doesn't seem to be attracting a mate with his carrying-ons.

"He told her that he had been enchanted by a spiteful fairy, who had changed him into a frog; and had been fated so to abide till some princess should take him out of the spring, and let him eat from her plate, and sleep upon her bed for three nights." from the Frog-Prince - Grimm Brothers

This is a label (cinderella) put out in the 1970s (I think) by the Canadian financial institution, Canada Trust.
I use to have the entire set mint, but of course sold them with my old collection when I started collecting again.
And now I'm a cinderella collector, and on the search for them again. Figures, right?
Can't remember what was on the rest of them, but isn't this frog cute?

Some froggies from Phillipines



I remember watching a TV show with a frog that hardens its body and rolls down a hill to get away from prey - off to wikipedia to find him.
