Share Your World – Week 134

Yo dude! Let’s talk about how awesome I am, OK?

This week’s featured Shelf critter for my SYW intro is the one and only (thank goodness) Snuggle Bear.  The real Snuggle Bear has been the longtime mascot for Snuggle brand fabric softener (I don’t know how worldwide that product is), and gained a reputation long before I completely ruined it on SCT of being an extremely creepy critter.  What would you think if you walked into your laundry room and a teddy bear was happily feeling and sniffing your unmentionables?  This happened during daytime TV commercial breaks all the time in the 80’s and 90’s…

See! Shelf Critter Theatre is totally a kids show!

Of course, I took all of this and turned him into the most creepy prevert I could for his role in SCT.  Snuggle attempts to pick up and get it on with all of the Shelf’s ladies….. regardless of age.  And he may be the only reason I keep at least one bag of candy available at all times for a prop.  I received “Uncle Snuggie” from a friend on the Millionaire message board nine years ago who was a chemist for Unilever (at the time, the owners of the Snuggle brand), who picked him up at their gift shop.  It was well known over there that I stocked (again, at the time) the laundry products aisle at Mecca, which made the creepiest bear in the world a great gift…

Or maybe that was a statement about me, who would stage scenes such as this…

A potential SYW question themed around Snuggle…

What is the creepiest thing you’ve ever seen someone do, that you’d be willing to talk about, of course?

Let’s share our world with Melanie’s questions for this week

In honor of Snuggle, let’s all feel up the world!

Do you believe in second chances?

Sure!  If we couldn’t have second chances, Buster’s SCT filmography would have been only one episode long…

Second chances are why they invented freezer bags…

Bonus factoid: The lady from the Millionaire message board for whom we have to thank for the character of Buster went by the username “Second Chance” over there!  And nobody has gotten more second chances than our favorite possum…

Is your glass half full or half empty?

Hmmmmmmm…. let me consult with my life coach.

MR. FOX: ………………………..

Um, it may take a while to get an answer.  I’ll skip this for now….

Would you rather someone be honest and hurt your feelings or lie to protect them?

Being honest isn’t going to hurt my feelings, and I want honesty from those who talk to me.  I know it’s difficult, because we’re conditioned from early on with that namby pamby  “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” BS because there are too many snowflakes out there who will melt under another person’s opinion.  While unsolicited opinions are a different matter, if prompted, I always want and expect honesty…. good, bad or ugly.  And so should everyone else…

Golly, Mrs. Cleaver! You look like a total MILF today!

When have you felt your biggest adrenaline rush?

I dunno……. maybe being on TV for a chance to win $1,860,000?

Hey, parting gifts are worth getting excited over too…

What are you grateful for?

More old school ESN comics, of course!

Maybe this will cool us all down on a hot summer day….

Well, let’s see if we have an answer yet to that second question…..

………………………

Ummmmm……. well, you can’t rush philosophical answers.  Keep pondering, Mr. Fox…

  1. that would be my adrenaline rush too… but hey we won 26 bucks this week… it’s a start, right?

  2. While I’d already read all the posts about your journey to almost-stardom, I just did a re-read….it’s as hilarious in a “but he didn’t get the big money” kind of way as it was way back when. It was cool that you were THERE even if you had to stay in a dump and didn’t even get a free blender or some other souvenir other than a cardboard check. Well Mr. Squirrel – you’re a WINNER in our book anyway.

    Pam

    • Yeah, but I probably used up all of my adrenaline just to get that cardboard check…. so when I really need it, like when I get attacked by a gang of unruly possums who are sticking up for Buster, I’m going to regret it!

    Funny, funny. I bet you’d get a lot of bucks for that Snuggle Bear today!

    • He’s hardly vintage, plus all of the handling I’ve done of him to make my little plays had left him very much in need of a bath. Not to mention the soap he needs in his mouth…

  4. Thanks Bill for Sharing Your World! One more little question (which I’ll gather next week) and then I’m hosting an ‘all squirrels all the time” SYW. Great questions you’ve come up with too, and if I can find it in the fistful of zip drives I have, I’m using that nifty SYW logo you designed too. It’ll be good times! So Buster has drowned/froze in an icy lake too hmmm? Is there no way he’ll go to die? He’s the original indestructible cartoon figure that you can bend, break and burn and he NEVER dies! There’s a battery company I could name that could use his endorsement, becuase he truly does ‘keep going and going…”. Heheh. Okay Have a fabulous week and thanks again!

    • That battery company with the bunny is HQ’ed here, so I see enough of that annoying little thing sponsoring everything from ballgames to Mitzi style toys. Buster’s batteries are rechargeable, though…. I just stick his tail into a socket after he dies, and he’s good to go again in about an hour.

  5. Philosophical and the Nest…hmm…gonna wonder about that one for a long time. 😉

    Mr Fox may be slow, but he gets there in the end. Or not. Tune in next week!
