Yes David number 1 is Peter Piper. Well worked out. Only two pins left and the reasoning behind the o-o-o.

Sorry Benny 7 is not Pip although I can see the logic of your guess. In summary:

1 Leading character in Nursery rhyme PETER PIPER
2 Performer on original Band Aid single STING
3 Book of the Old Testament
4 Young male featured in several sports BALL BOY
5 Means of promoting a product PLUG
6 Nickname of Wimbledon champion LITTLE MO
7 Character in South Park voiced by a Hollywood celeb
8 British crime film BUSTER
9 Popular children's game I SPY
10Character in Mozart opera FIGARO

To help a little more Number 3 relates to a character who relentlessly brought disaster upon everyone unlucky enough to cross his path. The South Park character was voiced by George Clooney and shares his name with a classic title character of British comics who was dropped from that comic presumably for reasons of political correctness. You have already identified Buster as the o-o-o but not given the reason why. Keep at it Benny (and everyone else!) You're nearly there ...

Benny. I am in awe of your knowledge of the penny dreadfuls. You have nailed that tricky final pin (Yes of course its Sparky!!) and also identified Buster as the o-o-o. I will yield the baton to you with the willing passivity of Cuthbert Cringeworthy if you can tell me why he is unlike the other 9.

Clutching at straws maybe but is it Buster Gonad from Viz as opposed to comics aimed at children?

Hmm, poor David seems to have gone missing (maybe he's slaving away with the elves, getting ready for tomorrow?).

So, unless David can re-join us before Benny sees this post... Benny, the ball is in your court! Take it away sir...
