Punky - Elmer's Little Scarecrow loves his nickname of “Punky.” He’s Elmer’s secret pal. Only Elmer can see him and talk to him. Punky likes Elmer but feels that Elmer keeps him from doing his job. After all, he is a scarecrow.
Punky’s face is embroidered and he has a cloth head and body. He has a lined vest, bowtie, fringed shirt which he wears out to cover his pot belly. He’s wearing pantaloons, black/white shoes, lined sculley cap and has raffia for hair. He has his wooden rake all ready for the leaves. Or, maybe he’s using it to swat those nasty crows.
“Punky - Elmer’s Little Scarecrow” loves his nickname of “Punky.” But, he can't tell anyone his name or anything about himself. Why? Because he’s Elmer’s secret pal. You see - only Elmer can see him and talk to him. Punky likes Elmer quite a lot, but feels that Elmer keeps him from doing his job. After all, he is a scarecrow. And his job is to scare away the birds and the crows not to spend all day playing with Elmer. But, he likes playing with Elmer so he's learned how to charm his way around the birds and scarecrows. And, it actually is working. Elmer is his friend. In fact, he's his best friend. Not only that, but he's his only friend. So, he'll play along with Elmer as much as he wants. For he knows that if Elmer doesn't think about him he doesn't exist. He has his wooden rake all ready for the leaves. Or, maybe he’s using it to swat those nasty crows. Nope! Not Punky. His rake is all show. He is "The Charming Scarecrow" after all.
