Cosmic Cutie

Hitchhiker's Guide

cosmic cutie

A little green blobby planet thing, nicknamed the ‘Cosmic Cutie,’ with no eyes, a tongue and two thin arms, was used on the U.S. editions of the Hitch Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy series of books because of worries that American consumers might not realize that a series of books with different names was a ‘trilogy.’

The author of the books, Douglas Adams was one of many people who disliked the character, and demanded it not appear on new editions of any of his books.
