At one point in the Director's Cut the artist states that she has no idea where the fuzzy antennaed thing on Dave's computer came from.... *Dramatic arm waving* Well wonder no more! The thing is a Weepul - I had one stuck on the top of my very first monitor, back in the hazy days of the late seventies and early eighties. Mine was a lovely green, wore a little hat, and had a tag that read 'Erin Go Bragh!'

They are still made, and are easy enough to find. (And hover around fifty cents in price, at least for a little one.) Sadly, the Erin Go Bragh Weepul appears to be discontinued, though making one is ridiculously easy.

The Auld Grump, who has no idea why he had an urge to go looking....

*EDIT* The term actually used was 'deely bopper', not antenna.

Oooh I have some left over from middle school! They're bouncing around my old room somewhere...probably by the Pogs...

So that's what they are! My brother had some on his desk in the 80s.
