Mr. Potato Head is a PlaysKool toy by Hasbro.
The cartoon speaks for itself.
Mr. Potato Head: So, You’re a Looney Tune…I see nothing LOONEY about you… Hey, why are You salivating…
Taz: <<<< licking his lips and salivating >>>>>
Caption: He’s carnivorous but also likes “fries with that” too!
Mr. Potato Head: Why Do I Have So Much Inner Hate?
In therapy this week, we broached the subject of my self-loathing. Although it’s not the correct terminology since the term “self-hatred” or “self-loathing” is more often refereed to by psychologists and psychiatrists who would usually describe people who hate themselves as “persons with low self-esteem.”
Self-hatred and shame is a large factor in my mental health diagnosis. One I’ve struggled with as long as I can remember. It’s only the second time, during any type of therapy, that I’m focusing on it with a view to changing my own misperception. My Autophobia, is a self-fear that I may one day like myself! I’m happy to say that I’ve been able to work through a lot of the self-loathing but that is a day-to-day fight.
My kids love Mr. Potato Head!! I think we’ve had about 4 or 5 of them, and every now and again, I’ll find a mouth or set of eyes around the house.
Here are 3 cartoons I’ve done with a Mr. Potato Head theme. I know I have more, but where? Somewhere… they pop up now and again. Or I’ll just have to re-draw them. Enjoy these Saturday Psychology Cartoons.
What is mental health? The term itself has a stigmatic connotation to it referring more to mental disorders or mental health problems. The truth is, it’s “relating to the total emotional and intellectual response of an individual to external reality” associated to both good and bad mentality. Even though this is true, most people tend to use the alternate mentalism definition “relating to, or affected by a psychiatric disorder : mentally disordered : mad, crazy b: intended for the care or treatment of persons affected by psychiatric disorders”.
