That takes me back! Those things were everywhere when I was a kid...
Sometimes the hair was actually rendered as a "?", and the fingers usually had tops.
Does anyone know the genesis of Chad?

Hi Chris,
"... Sometimes the hair was actually rendered as a "?", and the fingers usually had tops."

And the wall was in the shape of a brick wall...
Ah, those were the days...
