Monster figure with head completely misshapen, distorted body in sleeveless tee shirt and shorts, inscription "Hairy but true" on abdomen. He holds a cloth, perhaps a cape, with label "Who". In distance is a pointed tower--or a rocket emerging from the earth or ocean?--with what look like tears coming from it. (Virginia K. Anderson 04/03/95)
