And definitely don't look at the armband on his wing...




Hey kids! Who wants a ride on this jolly cartoon aeroplane? That's right, everybody does! Look how  silly and friendly he is!



Here he is again! What a merry little fellow! Look at his big smile!  Oh, and what's that on your side, Mister Aeroplane? It almost looks like an...


...Oh. Yes. An Iron Cross. That's... nice. And I notice you're not a biplane, so presumably you earned that in the, um, in the second world... 


Hey kids! Let's go and ride on the funny caterpillar!

Maybe it's a punishment to have kids play on it forever more.

Actually if you set out to draw a Victoria Cross and you were in a bit of a hurry it might turn out like that.

afailedjournalist said...

My inner child is shaking with fear. Not because of the medal, but because it sort of looks like Dr Robotnik.

Gareth said...

The mad staring eyes and bloodshot propellor don't inspire confidence. This plane looks distinctly the worse for wear. Even Douglas wouldn't risk flying in that condition.

Jela said...

Isn't it lovely, how relaxed and unaware of ugly history we can raise our children...?!
*facepalm*
As a German, I'd feel a lot safer if I had the impression somebody remembers...

Anonymous said...

Personally, I find the teeth and the really mad look in its eyes more frightening!

Cathy in Canada said...

He probably bought it on ebay...

ClosetDiva (aka Kate K) said...

Just don't let Gordon get a look - it could give him a completely new and horrible idea for "NYBJAMS". In which case, I guess that it could be considered GERTI's evil twin...

Luna said...

Aside from the, uh, medal, that thing is terrifying. Why would you let that near children?! The lion in the background looks slightly less... possessed...

Amanda Fairchild said...

Is this plane airworthy? Has Martin performed his three-hour walk round? And the Iron Cross was Gordon Shappy's doing, btw.

Musical Lottie said...

That's ... I don't even know how to describe it. Seriously, who on earth ever thought that might be a good design for a children's ride?! Yes, it's very brightly-coloured - too brightly-coloured, in fact - I feel sorry for any kid with sensory integration problems who has to try to process that O.o Friendly smile? I wonder if it has anything less ... sharky?

*sudders*

Jen said...

Wow. I actually think the deranged-looking face and bright colors would have been really appealing to me as a little kid, which I worry makes me weird, but that medal is just...baffling. I think the most disturbing part is how they put it at such a fun, jaunty angle, with the sweet little painted highlights.

Oh my God, how can anyone look at that things eyes (or portals to despair more like it in this case) without having nightmares for the next 6 months..

Linette said...

I just watched "The Walking Dead", but this is going to give me more nightmares...

Anonymous said...

Loved series two - missed the French creative accountant from the prioriy though

Annie said...

Oh my, I think I just cried a little inside from fear. I'm pretty sure I can hear it laughing whenever I look at the pictures.

More importantly, what is that cat looking ride in the background? Everyone loves a good sabertooth tiger.

Julian said...

This was an early conceptual sketch for the dreadful flying glove in the film of 'Yellow Submarine'... They only changed it to a hideous blue psychedic hand with a scary laugh when they thought this version would be too scary...

Steve said...

Someone's childhood demons made plastic.

Those crafty Germans already had monoplanes in WWI btw. What did they ever do for us.....
