The Stuffed Animal Biographies: Plum Plum

Another installment in "The Stuffed Animal Biographies" takes us to the younger brother of the moshi monkey featured in our last installment, Plumpy. Plumpy's younger and oftentimes more adventurous brother's name is Plum Plum.

Plum Plum originally came to live with us as a sort of "back-up" monkey in case something terrible ever happened to Plumpy. (I think the family was concerned that he might develop cancer from his chain smoking, although, Plum Plum's arrival also marked the end of Plumpy's depression.) Mountain Dew Girl was so fond of Plumpy that it was feared that if he were to tragically be lost, she would be beyond consolable. However, this tactic didn't work so well once Plumpy and Mountain Dew Girl discovered Plum Plum. The two of them managed to convince our mother that keeping Plum Plum confined to a box, only to be let out if Plumpy should die, was cruel. So Plum Plum came to live with Plumpy and Mountain Dew Girl.

Plum Plum is known for his very loud, often-times obnoxiously squeaky voice. He used to be extremely sensitve, and would often start to cry with very little reason. (Especially if someone asked him, however politely, not to speak so loudly.) He, too, enjoys cigrarettes, like his brother.

Plum Plum differs greatly from Plumpy in the respect that Plum Plum enjoys going out and visiting new places and meeting new people, while the latter would prefer a bowl of Chex Mix and to stay at home. Plum Plum became a bit of a "Flat Stanley," in that he went everywhere and had his picture taken with everyone from the guy selling popcorn at the movie theater to the priests at the local Catholic church, and everyone in between.

Plum Plum had a brief relationship with a friend of ours, Pretty Penguin Girl. The two started out quite steamy, but a scandelous image of Plum Plum caught in the middle a kiss between myself and Random Knowledge Boy caused a bit of a stir with Pretty Penguin Girl. She broke up with him shortly after the image made its rounds on Myspace. Plum Plum continually tried to win back Pretty Penguin Girl's affections, but to no avail. She remained disgusted with him, despite his finest efforts.

Plum Plum has filled the void in his life with other things, however, his favorite being traveling. He has dabbled a bit into martial arts, and has done two "music" videos, both of which feature hismelf and his brother Plumpy. His videos were not well-received, however, as critics panned them for their brevity and use of tabacco. This did not discourage the Plum, however, and he continues to show great interest in acting and videos. Below is one of Plum Plum's first videos.



And that's all for this issue of "The Stuffed Animal Biographies." Thanks for reading, and be sure to tune in next time for another look into the life of a stuffed animal.

    Thank you!

  3. Hi there! They are indeed very hard to come by. My sister, Mountain Dew Girl, finds them from time to time on Ebay. :) Good luck finding one, although, she's usually pretty quick to buy up any that are listed!

  5. They used to be at Linens N Things and Kirklands stores many years ago (probably back in 2004) but I think they're long sold out. :( Ebay is pretty much the only place to find them now.
