Fats..............from "Magic"


This is the puppet that literally scarred and traumatized me as a child. The movie "Magic" came out in 1978. Which means I was a one yr. old when the commercial pop-up on TV, right in front of my innocent, virgin eyes. Good times. My mom still remembers my reaction to seeing this cute, cuddly fellow. I found the original trailer on Youtube if your curious. I read they had to pool the spot due to parent complaints. This was actually really fun to do. Something interesting happens when you render a childhood fear.
Great topic, Josh. Cheers!

Actually I wasn't scared by Fats......Lambchop, yes. Damn evil sock puppet.

Cool rendering Jason! You really hang this over some kids crib someday....heck do it to your own kids someday. It'll build character and therapy sessions...
