If you are not a fan (or even familiar with) the Disney cartoon Phineas and Ferb, then you may not know what I'm talking about. Let me give you a little more information:
Perry the Inaction Figure is a wooden toy that is modeled after Perry. Phineas and Ferb pitch the toy idea to the Har-D-Har toy makers and it becomes a huge hit. (taken directly from phineasandferb.wiki.com). Check out a short clip from the specific episode:
As soon as I told the Hubs that I was planning a Phineas and Ferb Birthday party for Widget, the first thing out of his mouth was "And I can make some Perry Inaction Figures for each kid!" Let's just say he was just as excited about the Perry Inaction Figure as I was about the party details (that's pretty darn excited, folks!). And shortly thereafter, the Hubs got onto Google SketchUp and created a 'mock-up' of our cute platypus.

During the commercial for Perry the Inaction Figure, sixteen different backgrounds are shown, and the commercial makes note that "exotic backgrounds are not included". And, sticking to our theme, I created our own version of the commercial (without sound) to mimic the original...but since I was in St. Louis when I planned this post, our Perry just happens to be seen around the hotel in which we lived out the week. Take a look:
