: Remember Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing? The lady on the box (presumably Mavis Beacon) was a very dark black lady. I'm looking at an ad for the latest version and the lady on the box has much lighter skin and looks more Hispanic. Mavis Beacon is obviously a shapeshifter, or maybe a fictional character of some kind.

One of the non-bands I fronted in high school was called "Jerry Mavis and His Amazing Trained Seals". My stage name was a mix of Jerry Mathers and Mavis Beacon.
