Lesser-known Icons 21

[With one mouse action--bigness!]

* Now whenever you eat a turtle candy, you will picture the act of killing a monocle-wearing, tuxedo-clad amphibian.

* Before the Big Pitcher of Kool-Aid mascot, there was the "Kool-Aid Kid." Did he retire, or did the Pitcher drown him within its glass body and dispose of the corpse?

* Is the Hula Girl for Red Breast supposed to possess a "red breast," ie, tanned bosom?

* Is there a name for the iconography where the character has an oversized head on a diminuitive body, like the Sexton Foods Waitress?
