Purple Brain Man?

Last weekend while out thrift store shopping with my nine-year-old son, we ran across the following doll:

california-raisin

Much to my surprise, my son had no idea who or what this was. Even though the logic side of my brain tells me it’s been many years since the California Raisins were a part of pop culture, it still surprises me when kids are oblivious to staples from my past.

When I asked my son to guess who or what this was, his two guesses were “Purple Brain Man” and “Mr. Poop”.

Darn kids.
