Pingu & Pinga
Pingu & Pinga go thru a lot of change over the years. Pinga's smile and Pingu's earmuffs give it all away. Pingu's earmuffs were painted baby blue.
Homestar Runner is the best sculpt. He's pretty cool and in perfect scale with Pingu and Pinga. However, the loss of legs is startling and shocking.
Bertie the Bus
Bertie joined the gang when I thought of Thomas & Friends.
Elmo is such a great sculpt. This is one that really suffers in later versions where the red paint makes him a pinkish-red.
Mailbox joined the gang when my Nick fixation began again on November 14, 2010.
Senor joined Bertie and Mailbox when my H*R fixation began on January 4, 2011.
My H&Y fixation began on December 27, 2010. Hoops is a great favourite. The pink fur, the white eyes, the black mouth-all resembling the real Hoops.
Mr. Grumble really comes to life. The purple/blue skin and sea green hat make it so right, The rest of the finger puppets (Hoops, Homestar Runner, Pinga, Mailbox, Senor) give him a warming welcome.
I didn't acutally think of Popeye in the first place, but then I realized 12 characters was better than 11.
And he's in perfect scale with Pinga.
Boo Boo Bear
Boo Boo Bear joined when I discovered Boo Boo Baba Dee Dee on October 17, 2010.
Thomas the Tank Engine
Thomas the Tank Engine joined when I got my first two Brio trains (Thomas and Percy) on December 25, 2003.
