Wendell and Vinnie may be a bit of an odd couple, but their quirky friendship is totally real. But did the two ever have any fake friends in real life? We're talking about imaginary friends, of course! We asked Jerry Trainor and Buddy Handelson if they had any silly make-believe pals as kids and here's what they had to say!
Jerry admitted that he never had an imaginary friend (shocker!), but that's only because he always had a pet pal to talk to, instead. He dished, "I have a dog. He's very person-like, he looks like he's trying to understand English. When I talk he cranes his neck and tilts his head and his ears perk up, and he's like 'I don't know what you're saying because I'm a dog.'"
Buddy had a whole different story. He told us, "When I was like six, I had an imaginary friend... And his name was 'Slinky.' Basically, he was this big puffball on a bouncy spring and he would just bounce around and that's all I remember about him. I think he lives in Florida now, actually."
Are you thinking what we're thinking? Yup. A vacay trip to Florida is totally going on our calendars. We think it's time for a Buddy/Slinky reunion!
