Blurp Balls and a sad story

Story time! I had Croaky Bugchuck from this set and loved him, but one day we were snowed in, the toilet backed up and there was no plunger. My parents saw him and spent hours talking me into letting them use him as a makeshift plunger to unclog the toilet, promising to buy me a new one. It did work and it was desperately needed, but parents never seem to understand how toys are only temporarily produced and sold. I never saw another blurp ball again. I still have Croaky's fly, though, and treasure the dumb little thing as one of the neatest looking little bug toys in my collection.
