Dimitri's Page, dedicated to America's favorite stuffed sheep!
#3, February 1990
Let's face it . . .
a world-famous sheep is only as good as his wardrobe! Luckily for Dimitri
the costume department hasn't passed him by! On the contrary, very often
Dimitri's outfits steal the show right out from under its stars' noses!
In the episode where
the boys first deal with Vince Lucas, Dimitri is sitting on the couch at the
end, appropriately wearing a little convict's hat and a ball and chain around
one leg! When Balki brought home a dog, Dimitri is wearing a dogcatcher's
hat and has a leash!
When Balki booked
himself and Larry on a ski trip with the girls, Dimitri looked all ready to go,
wearing a scarf, goggles and coat. Luckily for Dimitri they left him
behind on that trip. Likewise he was dressed in a warm wool coat, all
ready for the trip to Madison, Wisconsin, for Christmas but they didn't get any

And while the
cousins were fighting over what to serve Jennifer and Mary Anne for dinner,
Dimitri looked content enough with his date, a girl sheep sitting next to

When Larry was
trying so hard to diet, Dimitri was seated on the counter throughout the
episode, first with a little cake and finally a chef's hat and bib. Not
much help to Larry, huh?
When the guys had a
chance to be in a commercial for The Chronicle, Dimitri obviously had ideas of
Hollywood grandeur as well, for he is sitting in his favorite spot on the
bookcase wearing sunglasses and a loud shirt. And Larry was absolutely
flabbergasted to meet Balki's friend, Olympic track star Carl Lewis, but
obviously Dimitri believed Balki all along, as he has a baton in his mouth and
looks like he's just dying to pass it!
biggest thrill had to be in the episode Wedding Belle Blues. Even
though his life may have been forever changed, Dimitri looked smart in his
little tuxedo (I wonder if you can really rent them that small?).
There's more outfits
to cover (Dimitri especially . . . where do I come up with them???) and we will
in future issues!
