Week of Clown Horror, Day 2

Maybe it's a bit of a stretch, but this cartoonish character looks clownish to me...

And furthermore, the girl in the photo doesn't look very happy to be there with it:

As if it's not bad enough they make her wear a sweater with the clown-troll character, she's also forced to hold a doll of the clown-troll character.  (The loopy red yarn hair!  The hideous poof-nose!  The buck teeth!)

...You poor little thing.  Come with us.  We'll take you away from this place, somewhere where you'll never, ever have to pretend to like clown-troll cartoon characters-- ever again!


  1. It is an imp called Pumuckl (descendant of the ancient klabautermann people which was the main character in a tv series and audio dramas when I was a child. He is invisible to all but to a carpenter he is living with and playing all sort of trick and always gets into trouble. I loved it and could the cassettes over and over again (Oh, indulging in sweet memories...) I agree, the doll is not actually that pretty, but I think I totally would have worn the sweater then.

  2. Aaah I remember this! My grandma had a lot russian knitting magazines, I actually remember this photo from one! Why the hell did I think that it was cute when I was 5??
