    Anybody else here get tired of seeing JHC okay the production of Animal products with PINK hair? I know there's some there, but it's RED mostly.

    What do you think about it?

    I know what you mean, Pink Animal is getting really annoying, i don't think he's ever appeared in any show/movie as pink as he does in some of the products that come out.

    You should have seen the Pink Animal head Burger King gave out promoting MFS, it's pink, vibrates and furry, let's just say my dad was a bit shocked when he found that in my room. :halo:

    Hmm...how do I get one? NO! Wait! I am trying to NOT promote Pink Animal.

    The closest looking product to the actual Animal head so far is the puppet that was put out years ago by Fisher Price (?). You could see the yellow underneath the pink, so it worked out okay.

    LMAO - It's a prized piece in my collection - it took a lot for the Burger King peeps to find me one of those too as most of the restaurants had sold out. Hmmmmm i wonder why ? :eek:

    It was easy for me to get, for some reason there were millions of those at my girlfriends house.

    I remember when i got it, I walked outside (There are only to Burger Kings in my country and one is located outside Casements, where you'd find all the tourists) there were hundred's of people with a fuzzy, vibrating Pink head I couldn't stop laughing, seriousley it really vibrates heavily... i've never seen a kids toy vibrate like that before.

    It's another Henson myth. Gonzo's nose is blue, Animal's fur is hot pink and Bunsen is neon green. :rolleyes:

    And when you mix light blue, hot pink, and neon green together, you get the new color: VOMIT.

    I used to think the same thing about Animal, until I saw some closeup pics of him from the GMC era. At one point in the 80's, he was very pink! But, yeah, I'd like to see red Animal stuff. :halo:

    Pink animal!?!? What about his color changing NOSE!! It's red! No it's orange! no it's red! no it's orange! sheesh!!!

    The action figure is pink with an orange nose.
    I don't know what to think!

    Well, I did forget to mention that I do really dig the Palisades action figure for detail and because it isn't HOT PINK.

    Up until this new Movie he was mostly pink. I don't like the new red one.

    Animal's fur has always been comprised of red, pink and orange ostrich feathers of various hues. Most of the difference we see has to do with film stock and lighting.

    Animal should be RED not PINK!

    Color layering is beautiful to look at, a pain in the neck to get to look right. I have SOOOO many problems with Gonzo's nose...

    On the subject, I never liked Pink Lollipop Animal. Same reason I hate fat Twiddlebug looking Cookie Monster plush. Plush rarely gets Animal's fur close enough, I can see that, there's NO excuse with Cookie being blue and bald.

    I keep hearing some fans applauding the new Gonzo design, but it's just not right. A few of my non-fan friends have even commented how his nose texture resembles the Master Replicas Gonzo's sock covering, but thicker and in blue. I mean, he's okay, but he's not in any way back to any original Gonzo I've ever seen.

    Animal, on the other hand, is a little better now than he was a couple years ago, but I'd rather he go back to his TMM look.

    ME. Guh, I can't STAND pink Animal. He's red! RED, I TELL YOU!!!! :crazy:

    While Animal is primarily red, there is a bit of pink in there. And orange.

    And Animal obviously last all his pink when he hit puberty, because when he was a baby he was all pink:
