For The Love of Bibo...




One of my favorite things is my soft-n-squishy "Bibo" toy from "Archie McPhee's" that I found at Newbury Comics in Rhode Island back in November. Now, I have no idea where this character comes from, but apparently he starred in a VERY strange kids show in Japan back in the 70's. I don't know what special abilities he has, but in the video, they show him farting (yes, FARTING) some kind of red powder from his butt, and in another scene he farts a white powder, which stops a meteor from hitting the Earth (I couldn't make this up if I tried!). An in yet ANOTHER clip, he is peeing. No apparent reason - he just had to go. Via Archie McPhee's Blog.

  1. That clip is from the late 80s early 90s! I did some research on Chinese websites and they feel that the Tele-Tubbies were ripped off from Bibo. Minus the scat, I guess.

    We're looking into acquiring the rights...

  2. Ooops - that's what I get for assuming! Thanks for setting me straight, David. If I'm not being too nosey, who do you work for that would be interested in such a property?
