My friend and colleague Robert is a collector, and so is his wife. She’s into Oscar II memorabilia and vintage lingerie in its original packaging, he’s into almost everything. Robert’s collector’s heart of hearts, though, is with cartoon figurines. Wallace and Gromit in particular, but he ranges widely. Above is shown his latest acquisition: a 1970s Sesame Street alarm clock with Ernie in the Bedroom Scene! Many thanks, Robert! And check out the Bert figurine to the left — that’s Robert’s own handiwork. He has a morbid fascination with the Evil One.
