Mr. Doctor character jug produced in Taiwan by Hoffman of the United States in 1978. Doctors are highly trained professionals who are dedicated to healing and health. About half of all doctors work in a hospital setting, either as a surgeon or as a specialized doctor. The other half end up becoming general practitioners, seeing patients of all ages within a particular community. They are the frontline and first point of contact in a patient's health care. They diagnose and treat their patients for all sorts of ailments, and also refer their patients to the appropriate specialist doctor when needed for specific medical opinions and advice. Mr. Doctor's left hand reaching to his ear forms the handle of this jug. The Mr. Doctor character jug is a part of Hoffman's Leprechaun Series.
