Missing Hugo the ventriloquist's dummy. Or Hugo Purple Turban.

No wai!

I told my Hugo story here before, but the short version is I waited two years, asked Santa twice, and eventually got my Hugo man of 1,000 faces. The kids in those TV ads and on the side of the box were some sort of strange midgets - they looked like my age group, but they were TINY. A trick with perspective?

Cute Christmas video, but only, like, say 3 faces. Disappointing.

Certainly a contender for the "Creepiest Toy Evar" award. I remember when this thing came out and wondering "Who the hell is this for?"
