Maddy

Maddy Cro-Toon™ Characters and Info

ami-mehookdancecollagewm

  • Maddy was originally designed to be the crocheted version of myself.  However, she came directly off my crochet hook with a mind of her own, as I learned when she immediately started to pole dance on my afghan hook!  She pretends to be a Mad Crochet Scientist like me, and she has a lot of adventures.  She’s got the mentality of a seven-year-old and is much more extroverted than I am.  Read about her recent vacation in my diary here:  Maddy on Vacation.
  • Aran Wool is Maddy’s best friend and sometimes the only voice of reason in her world.  Unfortunately, he is only a ball of yarn.
  • Mad – well, that would be me, the Mad Crochet Scientist and Maddy’s creator.  So in a way, I’m both her god and her parent.  Trust me, neither one is an easy job.
  • Various – many more characters will enter Maddy’s world as time goes on.  I will add to this list as they are introduced.

    Transcript

    Aran Wool: (scrubbing Maddy’s head with shampoo) I wonder why chickens have beaks and ducks have bills?

    Maddy: I never really thought about it.  Hmmm.

    Maddy: I know!  It’s probably because ducks have credit cards and chickens only have cash!

    Aran Wool:  Wait – What?!

    Maddy:  I’m right, aren’t I? Admit it!

    Aran Wool.  No.

    Aran Wool:  What are you up to, Maddy?

    Maddy:  I’m writing a book.  I want to get published!

    Aran Wool:  Oh.  Large font, big pictures.  A children’s book?

    Maddy:  No. I want to tap into a niche market.  It’s a book for senior citizens.

    Aran Wool:  That could be tough.  Seniors can be forgetful, you know.

    Maddy:  That’s what I’m counting on…they will buy it and forget they bought it and buy it again!  I’ll be rich!!!!

    Aran Wool:  (thinking)  Ugh!

    Aran Wool: I didn’t realize that. Why didn’t you ask me about it?
    Maddy: I don’t know.
    Aran Wool: Me either.
    Maddy: Which of us owes the other an apology?
    Aran Wool: (thinking) Good question.
    Aran Wool: Let’s call it even. Truce.

    Knottia:  Maddy, don’t be a buttonhole!  No cheating

    Maddy:  *Gasp!* That’s a bad word.  I’m telling!

    Maddy:  Mad, MAD!!  Knottia said a bad word.  You should get her mom to wash her mouth out!

    Later…

    Mad:  See, Maddy?  In YOUR case “buttonhole” is actually an anatomically correct term.

    Maddy: (thinking) Whoa!  How did she KNOW?!
