I'm not sure of the exact wording. I'm not even sure if it's something I read or saw or just made up in my head.
Specifically, I'm thinking of a scene, possibly in a children's show, where a person is talking about an "ugly" monster. The monster overhears, and pipes up -- possibly in monsterly broken English, but maybe not -- that he is beautiful, not ugly. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
More generally, I'm looking for any examples of monsters that consider themselves beautiful, despite common opinion to the contrary. Anything in literature, TV, or movies, whether for children or adults. I'm curious how common a theme this is.
I'm pretty sure I'm not thinking of Shrek. It might be Sweetums
from the Muppets, but I haven't found anything resembling the scene above. Any ideas?
