2016 update: Original artist website tasart.com. Commented below!
This t-shirt was bought by me in possibly 1994 (going by the date it was copyrighted) in a store like K-Mart (which i think it could have been). The teeth, eyes, and anything else white is glow-in-the-dark. Since my purchase in 1994, I have never seen someone else wearing or know of anyone that has one of these shirts. This page will hopefully solve that problem. If you have any information on this rare peice of clothing or have one yourself, please use the comment area.
The shirt I own today was not the only one I ever had. I originally had one that got ripped on the shoulder. A new one was bought immediately (the one I have now). The torn shirt was found recently and since it was only worn a few times the color is in great condition.
Description of shirt –
Graphics: Crazy character of orange color with green hair and purple tongue and palms. Arms are up high and spread out with legs in a running position. Below it reads “I NEED A FIX!” Black shirt. White areas glow in the dark.

The character was used to spawn an inside joke into crazy storyline about creatures in the Fruitopia vending machines. My and friends call the guy a fruitopian. A Fruitopian Attack Flash video series and a Fruitopian Attack game were created.
