A Necessary Correction About City Hall


OK, so the news clarified matters some. It’s not technically a dragon that’s caught in that fifth-floor corridor. It’s instead some cuddly, well-meaning dragon-like creature who embodies the spirit of civic-mindedness or something like that. I’m having trouble following it exactly. Apparently it comes from this obscure series of children’s books from the early 60s that are all about kids who accidentally make things worse but then find out how they can make things better. It sounds a little twee, honestly, but I can’t argue with the sentiments and apparently its nose is this little valentine-heart shape, and I’m a sucker for cute soft 60s characters with that feature. Still looks like some kind of dragon is all.

  1. That sounds like the “host” — Begone Dragon — for the Ruby -Spears syndication package “Begone Dragon and Friends “(said friends being PlasticMan, Mighty Mann and Yukk and I believe PacMan) who basicly ripped off Casper the Friendly Ghost’s Schtick of constantly being annoyed that everyone was afraid of him because he was a dragon,before they got to know him and despite his heart shaped nose

    1. I have not seen that package and I’m sad for that fact. I liked Plastic Man as well as Yukk, and couldn’t help liking Pac-Man despite the cartoon’s world building annoying me so much at that age. But I’m also an easy touch for the gentle creature that people just assume is a monster because of appearances and that time he ate Stamford, Connecticut by mistake.
