Did you know Bosco had a brother? Here's what he looked like

He was never shown on TV, but we’ve got a photo.

HERE’S THE BOSCO we know and love.

But did you know he had a brother?

According to the RTÉ Graphics department on Twitter:

Say hello to Mykro, a shelved prototype puppet supposed to be Bosco’s bro. Created by Carol Coffey of #RTE graphics!

He even had his own box! Here’s Mykro:


He has kind of a Michael Jackson vibe, no?

We’re also thinking he may have been an EVIL brother, judging by the fact that his box says DANGER: DO NOT OPEN. But maybe it’s just his Bono shades.

We think the RTÉ Graphic Design department probably deserve a follow on Twitter for this.
