There's always been something so cuddly about Anderson Cooper.

Even when he reports on disasters and hurricanes and other tragedies, the CNN newsman gives off a take-me-home-I'm-a-cute-cuddly-puppy aura.

So it's just as well that the people behind the Cabbage Patch Kids Doll brand (who is behind it all? I'd be terrified to meet them) have created a special Anderson Cooper-Alike Cabbage Patch Kid Doll.

ACoop will introduce the doll on Wednesday's episode of Anderson (locally at 9 a.m. on CBS-3 KYW-TV). He plans to auction it off on AndersonCooper.com with all proceeds to benefit non-profit org  Puppies Behind Bars.

Here's a video of Anderson groovin' on the doll. (They're both so squeezable, it's hard to tell which is which.)
