Grape Ape

Does anyone remember that Saturday morning cartoon from the late 70s, early 80s? It's fuzzy (I don't think it ran for very long) but it's wedged in my noggin somewhere between the Lemon Twist and legwarmers.

All I know for sure is that he was a huge purple ape. He might have had a hat on too, and a little vest maybe? I'm not sure. The 70s were ever so long ago.

Anyway, because this purple doily was meant to be a dainty coaster but ended up being so big it could easily accommodate a flowerpot, the cartoon gorilla popped into my head.

Clearly I used the wrong weight of crochet cotton. It's still pretty, I think, but it's awfully purple for a doily...

My apologies to the March/April '08 issue of Crochet Today! for bungling this delightful coaster project. I'll get the right crochet cotton next time I attempt this. I promise.

And of course I remember Grape Ape. Do you remember Mumbly?
