The Campbell Kids always creeped me out. They were Kewpie-cute, and straight 30s-kitsch - but no child in the 60s would grasp their visual pedigree, and would be naturally alarmed by their wide eyes, frankfurter cheeks, useless slit-mouths, and unisex lashes.

It would be impossible for them to look out of the corners of their eyes, since their faces were utterly flat and their necks had limited mobility. They had to practice this cover several times, because she kept dumping the beans on the dirt.
