Sushi and Gazpacho were born on this here blog a year ago. Hard to believe but it's absolutely true. The idea came to me one day when a friend of mine and I were talking about the old WWF wrestlers of our childhood. Earlier that day I was listening to a podcast where the host mentioned her friend's cat Sushi. It all made sense to me.
Naturally Sushi had to have a tag team partner, so I recalled a night when I saw a raccoon and a cat sharing some leftovers while I was on my honeymoon in Costa Rica. The tapas restaurant we were dining in left food outside for the local wildlife, mostly fruit, and those dining could look down below from the window as they played out a little story. So Gazpacho the Spanish Raccoon was born (imagine the most interesting man in the world from the Dos Equis spots voicing him). Below is a list of links displaying the evolution of these two characters over the course of a year. Happy Birthday, guys! Enjoy!
And let me ask you this...would you like to see these two as toys?
