Baskerville was a muppet originally partnered with Rowlf the Dog for Purina Dog Chow commercials. This is based on one of those commercials during which he prefers eating asparagus over dog chow. Maybe his veterinarian made him vegetarian.

I was responding to a post about early PBS, and this character somehow popped in my head. This is DIRTY FRANK, the sole puppet character that appeared on a locally produced TV series (WZBZ channel 5, Boston) called JABBERWOCKY. I think Frank was meant to be like a combination of Oscar and Big Bird, as he was the cheery child-like character, but he lived in a chimney, (on set, not a roof) never bathed and liked filth, and spoke with a deep, gruff voice. This is how I remember him looking.

My SALEM NEWS cartoon published on 09/11/2015: Local cities (including Salem) would like FIOS media services. Verizon, who operates FIOS, is not interested in expanding its services into those areas, leaving Salem and those areas under COMCAST's conditions. Talk about your TV soap operas!

Experimenting with the design of the herpetologist character that cameoed in yesterday's post. The name might not exactly be original, but what else would you call a woman that talks to snakes?
