Bootsy Bat was originally named "Drat Bat Puppet Roberts," but I didn't want to get into trouble with the Princess Bride movie people. (That’s a great movie, by the way.)
Bootsy Bat was derived from a finger puppet that my sister made for me of a bat for my forty-fourth birthday. In addition to liking lizards, I also like bats.
Bootsy Bat likes to get to the bottom of things. He is the best friend of Thelonious Melon.
