I was on a constant search for this little guy all 3.5 inches of him. Jiminy was a very elusive guy to track down.One summer day while in the deep forest in the Colorado mountains myself and a mate were on a survival mission with no food or water so we had to make due with what we could conjure up to get nourishment and survive. My buddy who was more of a down to earth survivalist indicated to me we may have to eat bugs to survive. I want to give you some more info on Jiminy, he is much rarer than many of the super heroes as I have seen more Marvels and Phantoms and Superman but I have only run down two Jiminy figures in 25 years so not sure how many were produced but at that rate he is on the endangered species list for sure.
Back to the story, well my stomach was howling and I was ready to eat something but bugs and insects, not sure. Well my mate brought my attention to the Crickets singing in the underbrush and he said he was going for dinner. I watched him lift the rocks and there were crickets scurrying everywhere running for their lives. Out of the corner of my eye I saw him , he was larger than the rest so he stood out and he had what looked like a small umbrella he was clutching while he ran behind a log.I rushed over and there he was looking up at me pleading with me not to eat him. I felt sorry for the little guy and picked him up and he started bargaining with me to save his crunchy little body. My mate was just a grabbin and a crunching cricket after cricket and smiling at me. Jiminy asked me to step away to talk so I did.
We stepped where my mate could not hear us and Jiminy exclaimed that if I would spare his life he would show me the way to live with integrity and a clear conscience for eternity. Now I was not a bad guy but I thought to myself why not give him a try , so I spared his life and hid him from my hungry friend. I just could not bring myself to eat bugs no matter how hungry I was so I kept searching and happened across a lost Pic a Nic basket left by a couple bears, Yogi and Boo Boo I heard them talking as they scurried away from me. I filled my belly with a few ham and cheese sandwiches and washed it down with some lemon aide and Jiminy and I have been together ever since and he has been my mentor.
Jiminy has taught me everything he knows so it is time to move on to your house, get him now you won't see another one.
