Nice job. I can tell why this was one of the winning articles. You obviously devoted a lot of time into turning Pooter into a star. Perhaps he is a well remembered icon of the '90s in some alternate universe. That would be kind of cool, wouldn't it?

@Vaporman87: Yeah, I left it open-ended in case I ever wanted to repoot him. My skills have almost met my ambitions after all these years. I do feel Pooter's decade was the 90s, like Eddie Murphy's was the 80s.

@NLogan: My brother and I would write letters to every business, enter every contest, and send in proof of purchases for every cool toy. Not sure how my parent felt about it, but they provided the stamps and envelopes. Snail mail was awesome in a way that social media isn't: tangible and professional. I always wanted Sonic or Mario to read my letters, which I'm sure they did.

@vkimo: Hey thanks! The formatting worked its way out while I was writing it, but I had to start off with an obvious poot joke to clear the air. Would you believe the most time and effort went into identifying and finding fonts they used in 90s kids magazines? I eventually used a Scrapbook making software that had 1000 fonts in it.

Nice piece, I can tell a lot of work went into formatting it. You definitely took Pooter the whole 9 yards!

Your ambition for Pooter knew no bounds writing letters like crazy. I never wrote to a company, I only sent in my proofs of purchase for cereal box mail-a-way offers.

Blast you Dunkaroos makers! They denied us all a chance to partake in the Pooter craze.

Your drive to make Pooter matter in the world is admirable, especially since I can see myself doing all of those same things with various characters of my own creation. It's frustrating when you know how amazing something is, and you just want other people to realize it darn it!!!

Perhaps there is still an opportunity for Pooter out there somewhere. Maybe Australia needs a good mascot for their tourist industry literature and media!
