The cartoonist David Low first drew Colonel Blimp for Lord Beaverbrook's London Evening Standard in the 1930s: pompous, irascible, jingoistic and stereotypically English. "Gad, Sir", Blimp would proclaim, wrapped in his towel and brandishing some mundane weapon to emphasise his passion and complacency on some issue of current affairs.
A more sympathetic version of Blimp appeared in the classic British film The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp.
