I want to see video of its twitching body.

Snuggle®. The name alone makes me want to burn down a dozen laundromats (after hours). Of all the ad icons that have fouled our TVs, this heinous fabric softener sheet shill (here's an old spot) is my 2nd most-hated ever (He's #1). Well, now girls of all ages can buy a Snuggle head purse. I am tempted to get one—if only to impale it on my fire escape to scare away pigeons/intruders. (Thanks to Theresa LaGuardia for the tip. She says she's related to long deceased, three-term NYC mayor Fiorello LaGuardia. I see no reason not to believe her.)
previously in ad icons:
1. Balvenie Weenie® thread.
2. Kotex® Ko.
3. Advertising Week 2006: Procession of Icons.

I agree with ricpic. Totes John TB the Snuggleuppicous. Think I'll score this "purse"; it's really hot/bizarre in my view. Decapitated stuffed animals sunlighting as product placement ... who knew.

Teddy Ruxbin ripoff. (But that would be so much cooler if it sang and read stories.)

it would have been cooler to have a purse made from a headless snuggles torso.

Holy shit - that's Bungle! At last, someone's killed that evil bastard!
Bungle was an obnoxious paedophile bear in British TV prog Rainbow back in the '80s.
Here he/it is in action:

How did I miss this one? I'm going to get it so that next time the cat misbehaves, I can set him straight.

Oh I got a creepy birthday card with evil snuggles the bear on it. I colored the eyes with a red sharpie and now it is a game with a friend to hide it in their stuff.
