DR LEGGS’ report on BEANIE WEANIE (Todd Emerson)

Hello, I am Dr Leggs, the resident psychiatrist of Sunset Cove. Many interesting people come to see me about their problems (and you can sometimes see me in Atlantis High!). Each week I’m profiling different Sunset Covers – and this week is everyone’s favorite big-eared dude, Beanie

Name:Beanie Weanie
Age: This is a really hard one because nobody seems to know, least of all Beanie himself!

Loner and strange boy supreme of Atlantis High school.

Appearance:What else can I say but have you seen those ears? I mean, it’s hard to notice anything else! But I must say that Beanie does have his own unique style and tries hard to look clean.
Past History:What past history? Beanie has absolutely no idea who he is, where he came from and why he has been in the same class at Atlantis High school for 36 years!
Motives:Beanie just wants to be loved and to find out where he comes from. He has no family and no sense of culture or heritage. He wants people to like him for who (or what!) he is but plays the game as much as he can in order to fit in with his classmates and appear to be ‘normal’ like the rest of them!
Influences:Beanie is influenced by anything round and shiny. He is strangely drawn to spherical objects and has been known to stop a conversation just to run after a frisbee. More recently Beanie has begun to be influenced by his new found friends, Giles and Jet.
Strengths: Oh Beanie Weenie! A good loyal friend to those who will let him in to their hearts. Very good at drawing round UFO style objects. Great at creeping round in people’s school lockers, mainly unnoticed.
Weaknesses: A big weakness would have to be frisbees, wheel hubs and other things of the round variety!
Catchphrases: “Who am I?” and “Where do I come from?”
Secrets:.There simply has to be a deep dark secret with this guy. He is obviously not of this world. But why is he here? has he been left behind by his alien counterparts? Or was he planted on earth as a spy by some unknown biological warfare society?

Some say that Beanie has developed real ‘feelings’ for his new pal, Jet. Others feel that Beanie is heading for some kind of nervous breakdown because he is starting to get confused with his identity. Well, looks like I’m going to be kept very busy!
