SPUNKIES



One of Mariel's favorite cartoons has been one called "OKEY DOKEY DONKEY." This is a late fifties Paramount cartoon that features a donkey named Spunky. I think Spunky came into being as half of the Hunky & Spunky team in Max Fleischer's "Color Classics" series.




'Mariel doesn't care about that stuff. She just enjoys the cartoon.

One day, when we had the construction paper, glue stick, google eyes and craft jewels out, I cut out a horse. It was kind of an amalgam of Pokey and My Little Pony.

Mariel decided it was Spunky.

OK, so I made a donkey instead of a horse.
She had fun gluing on an eye and some jewels.

As four year olds will do, she asked me to make another one.

And another one.

And another one.

And... you get the idea.

She had a big envelope full of these things.

Every so often she'll ask to "make some more the Spunkies!"

(Actually, she isn't "asking!")

Yep, the herd just keeps a-growin' and a-growin'...
