|From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
|A fannish verse-fad set off, like many of our gags, by a stfyarn. Cuddlypets were animals tamed by artificial stimulation of their affection-centers, but the thing that fans went for was the advertising-verse used by salesmen of this peculiar merchandise. Below is a sample of a fannish adaptation.
Rivals Cuddly-Lion in style;
Modern fashion doesn't bar
from Fancyclopedia 2 Supplement ca. 1960:
The creatrix of the horrors was Evelyn Smith.
Phyllis Economou sent this one in a loc to Grue 20:
You can have your Cuddlee-beast
Cuddlee-cougar tempts me least.
All I ask, please, if you can
Just give me a Cuddlee-MAN!!
