Traumafessions :: Reader Quizzicalsphinx on the HuggaBunch

May 18th, 2009 by aunt john · 9 Comments

To save space in your in-box, I have documented my Kindertrauma through the eternal medium of YouTube video. To wit: in the early 1980s there was a series of dolls called the HuggaBunch. They had huge heads and eerie glassy eyes, and they were introduced to the world via an hour-long made-for-T.V. movie. The scene in the video below has not left my head for twenty-four years.

    UGH! I haaaaaaaaaaaaaate this movie! I always heard people on ’80s boards talk about it and so finally i bought a VHS of it a few yeasrs back. My daughter actually LIKED the damn thing too!
    I threw it out awhile back and now I almost wish I HADNT. I wanna show it to people so they can reel in disbelief!

    Now why on earth would someone create a chibi William Katt?  Is his name Huggins or Pippin?

    Damn.  And I thought I was the only one that remembered the Hugga Bunch and this God forsaken movie.

    Hard to believe this actually won a Primetime Emmy.

    omfg!  i think i blocked these out of my childhood memories….  i completely forgot about them until now!  they’re only slightly less creepy than that horrible cricket doll (the blonde, village-of-the-damned-looking, talking one)

    I watched this movie a ton of times as a kid. The elephant scared me before he became cute and blue. The queen scared me too hehe.
