Bobblehead/tail Monday #3

Bobblehead/Bobbletail #3
Name: Homer the Dragon
Position: Mascot
Team: Charlotte Knights
Description: 7.25 inches tall; wearing a Charlotte Knights uniform and leaning on a bat. Homer is not only a bobblehead, but he also has a bobbling tail!
Relevance: I attended a Knights’ game on August 9th, 2007, with Laura and our good friends Mike and Rhonda, who live in Charlotte.  This bobblehead commemorates my visit to yet another baseball park!
How Acquired: I won Homer the Dragon from an auction on eBay.
Check out the fur!
Other Notes: The texture of Homer’s fur is pretty fantastic.  This is not a cheaply done bobble, as the fur is done with fine detail, which can’t be easy to create with a ceramic mold. 
The tail is too much fun as it is capable of wagging or moving up & down.  Homer is my only multi-bobbling-part figurine, and that alone secures him a spot in my Top 5 Favorite Bobbleheads.
Bonus Note: Homer broke the record for most hugs given by a mascot in a twenty-four span on May 24th, 2011.  5,615 lucky people helped Homer enter the record books! 
Just in case: Homer is the on the far left.


  1. Can't wait to see the top 2 spots in the bobblehead countdown. Very cool

  2. This is one of the first bobbleheads where I feel the bobblehead looks WAY cooler than the actual mascot. Love this one.

  3. Hugely huggable Homer! Who knew? Mom
