Marvin was one of my eldest sons favorite cartoon characters. Im going to try working up this pattern even though there are no photos to go by. The written instructions seem clear enough but I wont know for sure until Im well into the project. While I certainly appreciate the designers efforts, I wish there was a link back to her original page.

You can really see the personality of Marvin in this amigurumi! I have a puzzle of this guy that I do, and this is the perfect next project for me.

Oh my gosh. I love it. I certainly remember him. He was going to blow up earth because it blocked his view of the moon. He and Buggs went a few very funny rounds. I have to make it. It will go into my nostalgia collection.thank you for sharing this gem.
