I was gonna say Bertie Wooster beause he is very eccentric and doesn‘t think think things through ( in ‘Thank You, Jeeves‘ his landlord tells him to either stop playing the banjo or move out. So in typical dyspraxic impulsive style, he moves down to the country in order to play the banjo in peace. He seems surprised that Jeeves does not share his sudden obsession but does not appear to mind that other people don‘t enjoy his playing, and carries on regardless. )
However...
He is apparently quite good at tennis and dancing, which is hardly typical of people with dyspraxia. Although he can be quite klutzy, for example he falls flat on his face while dancing with Honoria :lol:
Also, he metaphorically takes the long way round, using elaborate schemes to get out of his various engagements, instead of just saying, “ Look, I do not want to marry you.“ Although that would make the stories much shorter and take away a lot of the humour!
I am curious as to what other people think; have I just really over thought this, or do I have something?
:mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Smile, dance, laugh, live and don't take anything for granted. Being here is a gift.

Hercules from the Disney movie. I haven't watched the movie in about a decade (I really need to) but I remember relating to him a lot when I was little. Thinking back on it, it all makes sense now! :D The scene at the beginning of this clip proves it, I guess :lol:

He knocked the entire building down. How is that NOT dyspraxic? :lol:

They probably could as animals can have Downs Syndrome which, previously, I had only thought affected humans.

I have done a little research in the past on animals with genetic disorders and sadly, they do occur. However, there isn't a lot of information out there as most animals that do have these genetic faults don't last very long in the wild. I know they have been doing experiments with mice, recreating them with three sets of the chromosome 21 which is responsible for Down's Syndrome.

I think I've said this before, but I'll say it again.

Watch this sketch. I'm 100% sure Michael Palin's character has a severe case of dyspraxia :P And also..."BEANS!!!" "SHUT UP!" :lol:

Phyllis from the 1970 film The Railway Children might have mild dyspraxia. She isn't that clumsy, but she constantly says funny things :lol: Mr. Perks might also be a little dyspraxic. The scene where he accidentally pours the kettle over the fire comes to mind :lol:
