History of Ogo Pogo

Our Ogo Pogo was created by Terry McManus of "Puppets Please." Terry moved to Seattle from San Diego, where she also created "Barleycorn," the unicorn hobby used by Morton Bay Fig Morris of San Diego. Terry danced briefly with Misty City. She now lives in Kingston, WA.

Officially, Ogo Pogo lives in Lake Okanogan in British Columbia during the fall and winter and dances with Misty City during the spring and summer. Sometimes Ogo Pogo ventures forth from the lake for a special appearance at a winter performance, but for the most part, Ogo stays home during the cold months.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ogo Pogo

Is Ogo Pogo a boy sea dragon or a girl sea dragon?

The truth is, we don't know. No one on the team knows how to determine the sex of a sea dragon, and Ogo isn't telling. Linda knows how to sex a snake, Karen can sex a flea, and Elizabeth can sex a shark; among the three of us you'd think we could figure it out. Ogo seems to adopt the gender of the person riding him/her.

Valerie has suggested that Ogo Pogo may be a baby.

What does Ogo Pogo eat?

Money. Lots of it. Especially the green kind. Ogo will eat the silver and copper kind, but those are hard on Ogo's teeth.

If Ogo Pogo is from a British Columbian lake, why isn't he or she dancing with a British Columbian Morris team?

Perhaps because none of them invited him/her.
