Remember the Monchichis? This 1980's phenomenon started off as just a "teddybear" in which you could stick the Monchichi's foot or thumb in it's mouth ... that's pretty much it, right? However, the commercial was so painfully addicting that sales of the Monchichis were through the roof ... so much so that a cartoon was created for the Monchichis ... and yes, our household did have a Monchichi ... I believe my younger brother asked for it (wasn't me, darn it!).
I still remember that annoying song too ... probably heard it at least 5 times a day back then:
Oh, so soft and cuddly.
Put her thumb in her mouth
It's really neat.
Fun to cuddle her little feet.
Nya, Nya, Nya ... Nya, Nya, Nya
Happy, Happy, Monchichi!
