Lucky Seven Sampson

  • Big Eater: He downs a head of lettuce, fifty-six scoops of ice cream, and a slice of huckleberry pie throughout his song.

    Figure Eight

    Little Twelvetoes 


Little Twelvetoes

  • Alternative Number System: Due to his name sake, he uses a base-12 arithmetic compared to our base-10.
  • Floating Limbs: Little Twelvetoes takes the concept to extremes. Empty space is apparently a key part of his biology (and his Nice Hat), and also his head, hands, and feet are held on like with magnets (i.e. pretty easy to remove and stick on somewhere else) instead of like with flesh and blood.

  • Shrinking Violet: He doesn't have the nerve to talk to his neighbor, Pearl, to the point where he runs away when she invites him over. But she was apparently so touched by the poem he wrote for her that she went over to his house and proposed to him.
