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.

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

  5. 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.

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

  7. Anonymous11:12 am

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

  8. Cathy in Canada2:04 pm

    He probably bought it on ebay...

  9. 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...

  10. 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...

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

  12. 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?


  13. 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.

  14. Anonymous10:16 pm

    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..

  15. Linette3:24 am

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

  16. Anonymous6:23 pm

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

  17. 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.

  18. Julian2:04 pm

    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...

  19. Someone's childhood demons made plastic.

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