Psycho-Ceramics celebrated on the bubblegumfink blog
Bubblegumfink just posted about the nutty Japanese Psycho-Ceramics line (= "cracked pots," geddit?)--which were popular novelty gifts for hospital patients in the '60s, hence the glut of "did I tell you about my operation?" hang tags and exaggerated injuries on the hideous little critters.
Fun fact: the very first Scram had a cover drawing (by Andrice Arp) of a Psycho-Ceramic, a little fellow we like to call Uncle Scram.
