I’m really proud of this one and I kept Pongo a surprise from those of you who have been following me. Archie’s body is Mycroft Holmes from Sherlock and repainting all the detail was really fun. I love the patches on his elbows. HIs head comes from an Old David Levinson from the second Independence Day movie. I kind of hate painting glasses frames when they include lenses and this was one of those cases but I gave him horn rimmed glasses.
Pongo is a Labrador Retriever from the Funko Pets line repainted to be a dalmatian.
I will take commissions to replicate this funko, please contact privately to discuss price as the market for the figures in which I make these out of can change wildly. Ask me about my etsy shop.
Archie:… Because you think I’m Jiminy Cricket. Why do you think that, Henry?
Henry: It’s just because of who you are.
Archie: And what am I?
Henry:You’re a conscience. You help people see right from wrong.

Raphael Sbarge, on set in Steveston, March 21, 2017. A happy surprise to see him (and Pongo!) filming, and to meet him when he came to greet fans. The last photo was taken when he wrapped. Everyone gathered around to shake his hand. Very sweet.
Random thoughts tho: One of the greatest things about the dark curse is that, if Pongo has been there since the beginning, it’d mean he’s been alive for 28 years (and so on). That makes me so happy, because actually dogs don’t live that much.
Jared Gilmore and Raphael Sbarge on set in Steveston, March 21, 2017, for episode 6X21.
While marching down the street with the storybook, Henry sees Archie, shouts his name and runs over to him. They talk for a bit. Came across as very season one - aside from Henry’s height, that is ;-) .
