The Overly Described People Eater

Halloween is drawing near! I love it! Here's a little guy I drew for Toon Club based on the classic song, "Purple People Eater." Does his moniker feature the word "purple" because he's purple or because the people he eats are purple? I find it a bit disconcerting that you have to describe him as a one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater.

And how the heck many kinds of these things are there? Run! It's a purple people eater! What? Oh, it's the two-horned kind? Three eyes, you say? It's earthbound? Whew... for a minute there I was worried. Plus I'm not purple, so...

I've wondered the same thing about purple people. I love this drawing... great design, man. You've finally matched an image to this song for me, and this is what I'll see anytime I hear it... which won't be often, but all the same...

Great work - there's a monster that's happy with his lot!

I think the song asks "what's your line?" and his answer is.."Eating purple peoiple and it sure is fine."

So he doesn't neccessarily need to be purple..but maybe from eating so many he's turned purple like the flamingos do when the turn pink.

and cool character art too.

I think he eats purple people... because when i was little i saw a 80's music video on it... sad isnt it? but anyway, all of the people were normal, not purple, and they weren't afraid... so, that is why... also, he is most likely purple himself... but why does it have to be a he? are purple people eaters transexual or sompin? lol, anyway, nice description! I like that picture too!
