Cute furry creature. Round body/face covered with fur, and long thin arms and legs.
In Hero's Quest / Quest for Glory I (1989), meeps were cute furry creatures that lived in holes under flat rocks. They are mostly a round furry face/body with long, thin arms and legs. They are very strong and shy.
According to the game designers (Corey and Lori Cole), meeps were originally inspired by the game Whack-a-Mole and by the signature "hermit" cartoon Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits used to draw as an autograph.
Currently meeps are the "mascots" of The School for Heroes (www.theschoolforheroes.com).
