When Rachel was about two, she found a little rubber Prickle character at the Gillenwater's house and fell in love with it. Well, the Gillenwater kids were nice enough to give it to her and it became a constant companion. I was able to find a Gumby and a Pokey, too, but it was Prickle who was her favorite. And then I discovered that the show was on tv occasionally and she was hooked.
One day she and I were watching the show, accompanied by our own Gumby, Pokey, and Prickle, and she turned to me and said, "We have a Gumby!"
"Yup, we do," I said.
A short pause, then...
"We have a Prickle! And we have a Pokey!"
"Yup," I said.
"But we don't have a Goo," she said. Then, turning toward me and lowering her voice to a conspiratorial tone, "But we have a Goo on the television."
