Podcast ep 26: Bibo!

October 30 2018


If Archie McPhee has a muse, it's Bibo. This strange character from a kid's show became one of the iconic Archie McPhee products and inspired a whole army of pop culture influencers.  David, Scott, and Shana discuss his level of aspirational weirdness and how he inspires absurdity in all who accept him into their hearts. 

See all our Bibo products!

    My family had a contest.
    $10 at the flea market, bring back the weirdest thing you can find.
    My son came back with the most bizzare clock….
    He won the contest. Then we put batteries in and listened to the alarm. What the hell was that!
    Looks like we accidentally bought an original Bibo clock for 3 bucks.
    I’m mixed on this.
