ERASERHEAD BABY, HALLOWEEN EDITION
The early 80s saw a number of Saturday morning cartoons based on the films of David Lynch. Lasting only three episodes, the black & white Eraserhead! cartoon was deemed by parental advocacy groups as “horrid,” “weird” & “Lynchian” and unceremoniously canceled - but not before a massive marketing tie-in with McDonald’s was launched, offering children a series of ceramic figurines of The Baby in various holiday-themed costumes with their limited edition Wigglin’ Chicken McNuggets.
This green blob represents one of the few remaining Halloween Baby figurines - the ceramic toys had a tendency to be thrown to the ground in frightened disgust by children and their parents alike, where they would splinter into a hundred dangerous shards. This one’s a real treasure, folks. $75 OBO
