Were it the Bucky from Olbrich Gardens, not funny and kinda sinister.


I was going to stay out of this, but you said it first and a couple other people agreed.

I think Bucky in general is sorta creepy, and the one by Olbrich is definitely not friendly.

And I agree about the question on life sized. I prefer assuming he's three inches tall. He's a cartoon character and he can be any size you picture him.

There is a cute kid's story book called Bread and Jam for Frances, a little Badger...

And I also have an embroidered Angel Bucky with wings...

I agree the Bucky at Olbrich isn't exactly friendly. I don't think I would use the word "sinister" but not all huggly wuggly.

And I don't mind. Doesn't bother me. I'm working on those issues.

Definitely not life size. Life sized means they'd work in a selfie and they are way too big for a selfie without a stick.

OK, I promised myself that I wouldn't seek these things out, but I have to get a load of the Olbrich Gardens one.

He's right on Atwood, across the street from the Gardens at that little street that goes to the bathrooms/playground.

There could be a horror movie about Bucky. He is a mean critter. Same goes for that Buckeye at Ohio.

There's one right at Olbrich Gardens too, though I don't think it's as cool as the Hippy Bucky across the street at Olbrich Park.

There was a movie a couple of years ago called Buckystein.
