I want one.

But not as much as I would truly love my very own House Hippo.

Maybe that's a Canadian commercial - the House Hippos, that is. But maaaan. Show me someone who DOESN'T want at least one HH residing in their house...

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:26 PM

Just so no one thinks I've lost my marbles:


House hippos.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:31 PM

That cute little hippo was born on my birthday!!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:36 PM

Oh wow, I like cute things, but they don't normally get an audible reaction out of me. But this one made me gasp with happy surprise. What a CUTIE!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:37 PM

OMG! Hippos!!!1!1!!

Seriously, When I saw this image, I gasped aloud, then my hands shot up to my face, á la "home alone."

Then I squeed myself.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:37 PM

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:53 PM

My parents say that when I was little I said "hippanopotamanus".

Obligatory obscure Giles, Giles and Fripp lyric: "They say that you are hip, I understand that's short for 'hippo'."

If one were to look up "wide-eyed innocence" in wikipedia, this little hipplette's photo should be right there!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:14 PM

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:14 PM

Of course, there is the best hippopotamus song ever by the wonderful Flanders and Swan. It never fails to make me smile, even laugh.

jen - that hippo song is the first thing that popped into my head when I saw this picture!
I want this bebeh hippo for christmas - "there's lots of room for him in our two-car garage, I'll feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage..."

Love love LOVE the little Shrek-ears and belly flab. Pity they grow so big.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:19 PM

LOVE the EYE CAPSULES! And... .I have the original LP (yes) of Swann and Flanders with the Mud, Mud GLOOORIOUS mud song. One of my all time favorites. Evar.

Here I am, looking at the cute, when I'm hipposed to be working.

Aubrey, the cute has become a potomus. No use trying to fight it.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:47 PM

Way Cool Groovy Chick
 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:52 PM

Can't decide.
The earsies?
The eye capsules?
The nosesicle?
His leetle mini hippo self?

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:59 PM

*finds bebeh potamus*

*lays a pat of butter on him* ^^

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 03:19 PM

And did you know that hippos turn PINK in the sun?

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 03:24 PM

I am overcome by the excessive cuteness. The ear nubbins, the eye capsules, the four day old hungry, hungry hippo...already noshing on grass!

Someone hold me...

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 03:25 PM

Keith Handy, when I was about three, I reportedly eyeballed a heavy woman in the supermarket and said "Hello, Apotamus."

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 03:25 PM

*deep, deep inhalation*



Ok, seriously people, that is by far the cutest thing I have ever seen on Cuteoverload!

I just wanna grab him, mold him into a ball and put him in my mouth!

Or just, just.....GAHHHHH, TEH CUTE!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 03:27 PM

That is a fat baby, lady.


It's a hippo?


 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 03:50 PM

Good news! I have enough room in my back yard to build a hippo enclosure, complete with swimming pool. Woot! Now, I just gotta start digging for my wallow, and then I'll order my Hippo Kit.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 04:00 PM
