Dr. Alien Eyes, M.D
Dr. Alien Eyes’s precise abilities as a doctor are hard to pin down. While his bedside manner is legendary, the sound of eight eyes blinking is unsettling, even to the bravest soul. His outer-space origin is likely to be true, since he comes to work in a giant flying saucer. His antenna often hums loudly, mostly disco, making him a hit at parties, and distracting from the gross multi-blinking sound.

Dr. A is fun and simple, noteworthy mostly because he has many more eyes
than anyone else. His original build—a brown sock with yellow eyes—got lost; this re-build demonstrates that the essence of most of these designs isn’t dependent on materials.
