From 'Outer Space' is the theme at ATC Quarterly ... this is my card
In 1959 the ‘Sandmännchen’, the little guy on my card, was first seen on Television. It translates ‘Little Sandman’, he was coming from ‘Outer Space’ to tell kids all over Germany a bedtime story. At the end he poured sand/stars in the childrens eyes and told them ‘Good night’.
Sand in the eyes was supposed to make them sleepy, and they started rubbing their eyes. They really did, well I did ;)
All over Germany, when kids were asked about their bedtime, they never told the time or the hour, but replied: “Immediately after Sandmännchen!”
I grew up with that little guy and I can still hear the melody on Television when I look at him now.
I hope you like it.
