Media: Head and hands of Super Sculpey, on a wire armature with a cloth body. Painted brown eyes, grey mohair. He wears pants, an old shirt, and a red silk vest, over which he wears a tattered old robe made from old quilts. Some of the quilt patches are recreations of designs sketched from the character's real robe. Others are just fillers. But all are cut and pieced individually. The dog has a sculpted skull with nose and eyes of Super Sculpey, on a wire armature. Painted green eyes. The fake fur body was painted grey to match the dog in the series.

Height: 46 cm (18")

September 1990
