KnickerbockerBigBird11inbeanbag Tony WhitakerRemember this abomination? This Big Bird doll made by Knickerbocker won the last Ugly Muppet Toy Pageant (a Tough Pigs tradition), and boy did he deserve it. He’s enjoyed his reign of repulsive glory, but it’s about time to crown a new Really, Really, Really Ugly Toy… and I need your help!

Send me photos of ugly Muppet toys! You can send your entries, and you can send as many entries as you got. They can be old toys, they can be new toys. They can be fromSesame Street, The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, whatever. Just keep in mind this rule: Toys that are ugly because they?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢ve been beaten, abused, or manhandled don?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢t count. Only toys that were ugly straight outta the toy store.

The deadline is Wednesday, March 31. On April Fool’s Day, I’ll post all the entries, and you’ll judge their ugliness and send in your votes and your color commentary. And then we’ll name the new winner, and then we’ll all shudder with disgust.

Don’t delay! Send me your ugly toys today!
