Say hello to my little friend

Yesterday I introduced you to Professor Hunter Gonzales. Today I thought I'd introduce you to the other member of the team here at goNZo Freakpower Brains Trust. Meet Mr Trippy:

This muppet has some pretty uncertain origins. Some say he was the illegitimate lovechild of two or three very minor characters from Hewligan's Haircut. Others say some enchanted maker made him with a piece of taniwha tooth for a soul. Who knows? Perhaps one of the Sunday newspapers could do a feature story on the matter.

Mr Trippy joined the team about two months ago, and his role is to scare the kiddies away from the NORML stall. Nothing's worse than a Soccer Mum on your case, so Mr Trippy acts as child repellent insurance. Mr Trippy sez come back when you're over 18. Mr Trippy sez keep cool til after school. Mr Trippy sez no weed until uni or poly, and only then if you're cool with it on a personal level, etc.

Mr Trippy is also employed to keep an eye on Harold the giraffe:

This yellow muppet has a pretty haughty view of things, and Mr Trippy will be keeping a more ground level approach to drug related matters.
