B.C. the caveman from the Jonny Hart daily comic strip. Quick and dirty, this was a “Can I pull this off?” attempt. He was on my list when a Kermit the Frog surfaced in a box. I cut Kermit’s head to drop his upper lip WAY over his lower lip. The pear-shaped body I reversed to give B.C. his stoop. The legs are Kermit’s lowers. The arms are from a small knock-off guy, as are the hands. I built up this eyepits and brow with Concrete Patch (gray caulking), embedded half-rounds cut from a pen for ears, then laid on plastic string for hair. I sunk small nail heads for his eyes, which may not be right. In the comic strip they’re just black dots. His fur is Tyvek from a post office envelope cut any whichway and glued on. I did a fast job laying on Patch to fill out the legs and arms, so it was lumpy, then figured, “Hey, he’s a caveman,” and left in the lumps. The spear is a chopstick and plastic chunk tied with shreds of jute twine. I was surprised how well he came out considering my sloppy work. He does capture B.C.’s primitive and lop-sided hang-dog look.

Fantastic conversion. Can't believe this was a Kermit.
