Creepy


This week's flea market find.


I had one of these when a little boy, just like this.  Paul Winchell's Jerry Mahoney.  Someone had got it for me as a Christmas present.  Just what were they thinking?  Being an only child, didn't I already have enough issues without my creating more of a psychotic nature?  I'd leave him propped up on the second bed in my bedroom so he could watch me sleep.  Now you're probably asking yourself the same question I've often wondered about...why did I have two beds?  Anyway, to have this thing staring at me now while I sleep just would not happen.  No way.
Looks like someone had enough of his crap and bashed him in the head.  Fortunately I got rid of mine before I reached that stage.  I don't recall what I did with him but pretty sure fire was not involved.

Those dolls are used by ventriloquists aren't they? You could have had fun by talking to him. They wanted you to give some company as an only child.

too many scary movies, for sure...

That is a blast from the past. @ beds so you could have a friend to sleep over?

Very creepy!
I don't think I'd sleep well if we were in the same bedroom! ;-)

These scared me as a kid.

tried commenting on this post earlier today with no success. I found these things a bit spooky too; a little akin to clowns! Hi-five, we both share the 'only' tag

I bet he would be worth money if you had him now!

Us only children grow up with such a rich imagination though, right? I used to dress my dog's puppies up in my doll clothes when I was 9 years old. Those poor things!

Becky said...

I agree. I do not care for masks, either.

Whenever I see these, I think of the Twilight Zone episode with the ventriloquist. I think it starred Cliff Robertson. Creepy, indeed.

I have vague memories of Howdy Doody - that's who I thought this was, at first...
