You’ve got to love it when the power of technology can make a man’s youthful dreams into a reason that normal people fear him and geeks like us admire him as an adult. Case in point: Kirk Demarais. Why? Because he had a dream…about Weebles.
Throughout childhood I dictated a number of letters to Romper Room regarding my thoughts on new and better Weeble products. My mom recorded these ideas and actually mailed them in. My list included: the cast of Peter Pan, Casper, Sesame Street (which were eventually made), Popeye, Mickey Mouse (which were also produced later on) Scooby-Doo, Land of the Lost, Mighty Mouse, Groovie Goolies, and Star Wars.
I’d take a resurgence of Weebles over this plague of satanic Bobbleheads we’re in the middle of any day of the week.
