Overview

He turns 50 this year yet, he was married before his first birthday. He's been a television star and appeared in two major motion pictures. And now he is the focal point of his own daily comic strip. He is the man, the myth, the legend...the potato.

Mr. Potato Head, one of American's all-time favorite toys, is fast becoming one of its most loved cartoons. Mr. Potato Head Unplugged is the first collection of the strip, which debuted in the summer of 2001. Mr. Potato Head, the comic strip, has a lot going for it: Not only does it feature a toy that's a member of the Toy Hall of Fame, but the cocreators of the strip are legendary cartoonist Jim Davis and Garfield collaborator Brett Koth. Together, the two blend their humor-writing and artistic talents to create a strip that tips a hat-as well as a nose, a mustache, and a couple ears-to the classic situation comedy.

Mr. Potato Head is not a lone spud. He lives with his wife, Mrs. Potato Head (but of course) and their little taters, 13-year old Julienne and 10-year-old Chip. The four deal with such typical family follies as sibling rivalry, office issues, and chores, plus other unique challenges that come with being a large-headed tuber in the new millennium. Mr. P, as he's affectionately referred to by Davis, is a total couch potato when he's at home. His wife is a bit more ambitious as the author of her own gardening column, "Ask Mrs. P."

Mr. Potato Head Unplugged is sure to sprout rib-tickling laughs with readers of all generations, from young children discovering this much-loved spud for the first time to baby boomers who remembers the toy as the first one ever advertised on television.
