Sparkle Plenty and her hideously deformed face hope you like this crappy ukulele

September 14, 2012

Sparkle Plenty, a Dick Tracy character and the daughter of B.O. Plenty and Gravel Gertie (she actually turned out rather well considering that dubious genetic stock), once had enough cachet to pawn off a cheap ukulele knockoff on unsuspecting youngsters. One wonders whether this “ukette” and its instructional booklet led to mastery of the instrument faster than the piano’s Rhythmagraph method. Color me skeptical.

You can find pictures of one about halfway down this page. It looks like — surprise! — cheap plastic junk.
