Orango Tango was my first successful conversion from a stuffed animal to a vent figure. It took two operations before the mouth was satisfactory. I killed a stuffed Christmas teddy bear for the clothes.
Orango hired on as my ringmaster, barker, announcer and public relations manager. He is still learning what is appropriate and what is un-appropriate in the way of wording his part in programs. I believe his training is going well.
