Snuffleupagus

Did you know that Snuffleupagus's name is Aloysius? And that his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Snuffleupagus, got divorced? Well, almost, because the episode didn't air - the kids came away with negative messages during test runs. But you can read about it here.

I know, I know, this is so random. But it's 4 am and I can't sleep because the moment my back hit the bed last night I zonked out, and now my brain decides it has had enough of REM. See, this is why I do not sleep early.

Besides, Snuffy is one of my favorite characters, apart from Oscar the Grouch. He is the imaginary friend I never came up with. Well, at least until he became real. I think it requires a certain creativity level to have an imaginary friend, and I just didn't have that. Our toys were named "Sexy Pig"(pig in a two-piece bathing suit) and "Rabbita"(female rabbit), I named my dolls after their brand names, and our dogs were Blackie and Brownie and Whitie. Go figure.

Edit: Oscar the Grouch had a full body!!! *gasp* I have been living a lie!
