Ok I know it sounds weird but I'm looking to buy some Gigglesnort Hotel stuff. I've found some videos but I was also looking for some stuffed animals and posters or whatever.

If some one could give me a link or point me in the right direction I would be forever in your debt. Its a gift for my GF she used to love that show when she was a kid and she gets pissed off becuase nobody knows or remebers this show that came on around the mid 70's.

I know its a longshot asking this board but I figured; WTF I'm getting desprate for an original gift idea.

I'm sorry to say you probably won't find any merchandise to buy. This is a show made in the 70's, and I don't think any merchandise was sold for it then.

It's not popular enough now to have anyone make stuffed animals or posters.

I'll tell you what you can do though, and it will show your girlfriend that you REALLY care. Make her something.

Wait, it's not that hard. First get some images from the web.

Buy a package of computer shrink plastic. This works like Shrinky Dinks, except you put it in your computer printer.

Enlarge a couple of the images you got on the web and print them on the plastic.

Cut out around the images. You can do simple ovals, or goofy shapes. Punch out a hole at the top with a paper punch.

Shrink in the oven according to the directions, then put a string in the hole. Ta-da! Gigglesnort Hotel Christmas ornaments!

I did this and made my very own Zorak ornament. The only hitch is you have to experiment a bit. To make a decent size ornament may take a whole sheet of shrink plastic. But it's fun, and she'll be very surprised.

If the first ones you make turn out too small, get supplies from a craft store and make them into earrings. I know she'll be the only person in the world with Gigglesnort Hotel earrings.

If you're artsy craftsy you can make her a clay "Blob".
