Russian Cult Worships Female Cartoon Character

I’m sure we can all agree Gadget Hackwrench is an adorable character, but do you like her enough to worship her like a goddess?

If you’ve never heard of the cute Gadget Hackwrench, she is a Disney character from the Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers cartoon series. This female mouse was the team’s pilot, mechanic and inventor. That’s all pretty impressive, but she’s hardly worthy of her very own cult, don’t you think?

Well, believe it or not, a group of Russian fans of Gadget Hackwrench have created a new religion, with the above mentioned cartoon character as the idol. They pray to posters of her, gather to talk about how incredibly great she is, compose songs about her, and spread stickers of Miss Hackwrench, wherever they go. It’s pretty unbelievable, but if Maradona has his own cult, why couldn’t Gadget Hackwrench?

Here’s what some of her worshipers think of their rodent goddess: “She is the divine being, the most untouched and perfect sibling of the great God on Earth”. “Why I love her? It’s a stupid question, how could I not love the Goddess?”. “She is strict, cute, optimistic and her level of technical knowledge is unachievable for a mortal being.”

And this is a comment I found on English Russia, to prove all of the above is absolutely true:

“I’m Russian and my English isn’t very well…
I’ve found one pic with Gadget in web a couple of days ago, on a popular entertainment site, with a little article of who she is and her story. From that moment i just fell in love with her. I’ve watched the cartoon when i was some about 5 or 6 years old, but even now i can’t remember something from it except the tune, and I’m not interested in it now. But Gadget crashed me into pieces. Her beauty, intelligence, kindness, mixed with fix-it-girl image is so tempting. Her pics from the cartoon are wonderful, but there is so much fan art where she looks just the ideal female. I look on her and think: what would i like to be changed in her? and understand- nothing. She’s perfect. In our dirty world She’s the only angel. I downloaded lots of her pictures within some days and keep looking and looking on her, just can’t take my eyes off. I absolutely understand the men who started the cult, because Gadget gives all us the hope that there’s the endless beauty in our world. The ideal girl. Which we’ll never meet in reality.
I love you, Gadget.”

What more can I say?

    Like a Goddess? Well, they are just posing.. Nothing else.

    People have worshiped stupider things for less sensible reasons. See: 2000 years of doing what some rich Romans with funny hats tell you to.

    Google post-modern magic (or magick) and chaos magic. They may well not be posing, and they are in fact no nuttier than any other religion (and maybe less so since they chose what to worship rather than getting it from their parents). The only reason nobody says this about Christians, Hindus or Muslims is that their cartoon characters are very old. If some animator came up with a compassionate elephant with a few extra arms tomorrow and someone worshiped it, would you say the same thing if you had never heard of Ganesha?

    Worst photoshop job ever- next time don’t pick a plastic banner that has ties at each corner. 😛

    That’s me, third from the left. Don’t criticize what you don’t understand. Her touch, albeit mental, is transformational.

    They need to join the Cola Cult. It was featured in one of the episodes of Rescue Rangers.

    These photos are real (or wait, did you expect super-HD from cheap cameras?), these people are real too. Their LJ-community can be found here:

    Thinking about it, building churches is posing as well.
