Mr. Smarty Bear Interactive talking animatronic plush toy by Galoob 1985

22 Sep

Smarty Bear! The most loveable, smartest bear in the world!

Mr. Smarty Bear by Galoob 1985

Mr. Smarty Bear was released by Galoob toys in 1985. This was the same year that the more popular and well known Teddy Ruxpin bear was released by Worlds of Wonder. It is believed that Mr. Smarty was meant to compete with Teddy Ruxpin for the childrens’ affection and their parents dollars!

Mr. Smarty is 20″ in height. He has his little topknot, red plaid vest, bow tie and eyeglasses. The inside of his mouth is red felt. He has darling faux fur eyebrows that raise and lower when he talks. His big blue eyes open and close and his mouth moves.

Invented by Ralph Baer, this bear was designed to interact and talk to his friends on the screen of a TV set, while playing a VHS cassette (not included) containing interactive data. The 1986 Galoob Smarty Bear Interactive Video System  came with all of the components you would need to connect Smarty Bear to your VCR for interaction with TV.

At least four different VHS tapes were available for use with this system:

  1. Smarty and Argyle See the USA
  2. Argyle goes to Hollywood
  3. Who’s at the zoo?
  4. Argyle and Smarty’s First Case

Without the interactive video system, Mr. Smarty would only talk, he would not be animated.

He talks, his eyes, his eye brows, nose and mouth moves when he talks.  Talk to him and he will talk to you!

Mr. Smarty will say the following phrases:

  • Positively!
  • Hey! I like to be picked up!
  • Ha Ha Ha!!
  • Hey turn me over!
  • For Sure!

Walt Disney Wuzzles

26 Jul

Disney’s Wuzzles is an American animated television series created for Saturday morning television, and was first broadcast on September 14, 1985 on CBS. An idea of Michael Eisner for his new Disney television animation studio. The premise is that the main characters are hyrbids of two different animals

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

  • Bumblelion (voiced by Brian Cummings): Half bumblebee and half lion, Bumblelion is mostly lion in appearance. He is a short, squat orange furred creature with a pink mane, fuzzy antennae, a lion’s tail, small insect wings, and horizontal brown stripes up his tummy. He lives in a beehive, likes sports, is courageous, and has a crush on Butterbear. He is said to be the sort who “rush[es] in where angels fear to tread”. He and Eleroo are best friends.
  • Butterbear (voiced by Kathleen Helppie): Half bear and half butterfly, Butterbear is mostly bear in appearance. She has yellow fur with a white tummy, larger wings than the other Wuzzles, and short antennae with flowers on their ends. She is a keen gardener who is gentle and patient despite the crazy adventures of her friends.
  • Eleroo (voiced by Henry Gibson): Half elephant and half kangaroo. One of the larger Wuzzles, Eleroo is purple, with the body shape and tail of a kangaroo and an elephant‘s trunk and ears. He has a horizontally striped pouch (despite the fact that pouches are found only on female kangaroos). Eleroo has trouble remembering what he stores in his pouch. He is sweet, but accident/disaster prone. He and Bumblelion are best friends.
  • Moosel (voiced by Bill Scott): Half moose and half seal. Moosel is a small Wuzzle. He has antlers and flippers. Moosel has a vivid imagination, which makes him believe in monsters. He and Rhinokey are best friends.
  • Hoppopotamus (voiced by Jo Anne Worley): Half rabbit, half hippopotamus. She is called Hoppo by her friends. Hoppo is a Wuzzle who is a hippopotamus with a rabbit’s ears, buck teeth and a fluffy tail. She has blue fur with a purple tummy, and she loves to sing and act. Hoppo is a pushy demanding diva, but she can be sweet. However, when toughness is called for (particularly in dealing with the regular villain, Croc), she is the toughest Wuzzle of all. Hoppo has a crush on Bumblelion, but Bumblelion has his heart set on Butterbear.
  • Rhinokey (voiced by Alan Oppenheimer): Half rhinoceros and half monkey. Rhinokey is a Wuzzle who has a rhino-like snout with a horizontal-stripped horn, pink fur, and rhino-like legs. He is in a posture that is very much like that of a monkey’s. Rhinokey is a fun-loving, happy-go-lucky prankster. He loves to play practical jokes. He can be obnoxious, but he loves his friends. Rhinokey is Moosel’s best friend.
  • Tycoon (voiced by Gregg Berger): Half Tiger and half Raccoon. Tycoon is the rich kid of Wuz. He owns a money tree. He shows the other Wuzzles that he got his wealth from smart investing and saving his money, and teaches the Wuzzles about fiscal responsibility.
  • Crock (voiced by Alan Oppenheimer): Half crocodile, half dinosaur, and the main villain of the show. Crock is bad-tempered, lazy, vile, ignorant, a bully, and does anything to get what he wants. He always wants the best of what the Wuzzles have, but does not want to apply the effort to acquire it himself.
    • Brat (voiced by Bill Scott): Half wild boar, half dragon, and Crock’s chief sidekick. Brat sputters, raspberries, cries, laughs, yells, growls, and grunts in his speech, but Crock understands what he is saying. Like Crock, he is very lazy and has a strong dislike towards the Wuzzles coupled with a desire to have the best of what they have without applying any effort towards acquiring it. As his name implies, Brat is very bad tempered and is often shown throwing tantrums when he does not get his own way. He is also greatly lacking in intelligence, and his incompetence often sees himself and Crock falling victim to their own devices, which in turn occasionally sees the two of them falling out.
    • Frizard (voiced by Brian Cummings): Half frog, half lizard, and Crock’s other sidekick. Frizard is not particularly intelligent, but he means well and is more amiable in his manner than either Crock or Brat, and relatively more tolerant of the Wuzzles, but nevertheless very loyal to Crock; on occasions where Crock and Brat fall out, it is often left to Frizard to try and patch things up between them. His character essentially emphasizes tolerance of others who one is not particularly close to, while staying loyal to one’s friends regardless of whether their plans are morally right or not. Frizard does not appear in every episode, only making sporadic appearances throughout the series.
  • Narrator (voiced by Stan Freberg): The narrator of the series, who would often be heard at intervals and broke the fourth wall, telling the audience points where he considered trouble ahead for the Wuzzles or explaining a certain facet of the island of Wuz. The narrator is possibly a Wuzzle himself.

Minor or one-shot characters

  • Officer Eaglebeagle: Half beagle, half bald eagle. He is a no-nonsense cop who appears in the episodes “In the Money” and “Klutz on the Clutch”, both times dealing with illegal behavior from Rhinokey (allegedly robbing a bank and dangerous driving, respectively). His name may be a joke on the phrase “legal eagle”.
  • Mrs Pedigree (voiced by Tress MacNeille): Half swan, half ostrich. She is a rich, sophisticated Wuzzle who is highly respected in the gang’s hometown. She made very brief appearances in the episodes “In the Money” and “Klutz on the Clutch” before having a major role in “Class Dismissed” when she hosted a swanky party at her estate.
  • Transylvia: Half vulture, half monkey. She is the vampirewitch of the Terrified Forest. Her name is a joke on Transylvania. She looks a bit like the winged monkeys from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz or the Tenguof Japanese mythology, travels on a flying “boomerangstick” and is proud of the fact that people are scared of her, but seems to have self-confidence issues (until the end of the episode, anyway) and turned out to not be so scary once the gang got to know her (although she dissuaded them from telling anyone).
    • The Dingbats: Transylvia’s henchmen, described as “part dingo, part bat, and ugly all over” by the Narrator. They don’t speak (apart from a few sniggers) and seem to be rather incompetent, bringing their mistress Butterbear when she told them to find butterberries.
    • The Gorantula: Half gorilla and half tarantula. Transylvia’s pet, which was enlarged into an aggressive monster by a miscast spell and drove Transylvia out of her castle. The gang helped her to magically shrink it back to a more manageable size.
  • Peter Parafox: Half parrot, half foxand the owner of Parafox Studios in Hollywuz. He spent most of “Hooray for Hollywuz” ordering his security to throw the persistent but unwanted Hoppo out of the studio. He doesn’t seem to be able to say anything without squawking loudly at some point during the sentence.
    • Steven Sealbird: Half seal, half bird and another Hollywuz movie director whose film making was interrupted by Hoppo. His name is a parody of movie producer Steven Spielberg.

1969 Mattel Upsy Downsy Happidiculous new world dolls

30 May

Upsy Downsy is a brand developed by Mattel. It concerns two races of strange beings, one that lives rightside-up (The Upsys), the other upside-down (The Downsys). These psychedelic creatures and their fantasy world were featured in a short-lived line of colorful toys and story books for young children in 1969.

The toys were small plastic characters with fabric clothing and synthetic yarn hair, all in fantastic, garishly bright colors. Each came with a fold-out cardboard Playland mat, a “Magic Bridge Clip” to link one mat to another, some wild (and often quite fragile!) accessories, a mode of transportation, and a name that summed up their character in a few nonsensical words. All of the individual Playland mats were designed to be placed together using the Bridge Clips to make the “Happidiculous World” of The Upsys and Downsys. The Upsy figures were approximately 2-1/2″ tall, basically humanoid in shape, with tiny bodies and huge oversized heads topped with a large bright yarn pompom for hair. The Downsys, on the other hand, were more cartoonish beings, about 4″ in height with wild, goofy faces in the middle of a large, rounded body. Downsys’ hands are positioned on the tops of their heads, to allow them to stand upside-down.

Upsys

  • Flossy Glossy – The Upsy Fire-Chiefess and her Elewetter Fire Engine
  • Tickle Pinkle – The Upsy Beauty and her Bugabout Car
  • Pudgy Fudgy – The Upsy Eat-Too-Mucher and her Piggybus
  • Baby So-High – The Upsy Hero and her Airo-Zoomer Plane

Downsys

  • Downy Dilly – The Downsy Mischief-Maker and her Footmobile
  • Pocus Hocus – The Downsy Mixed-Up Magician and his Dragon Wagon
  • Mother What Now – The Downsy Frazzled Mom and her Go-Getter Car
  • Miss Information – The Downsy Opposite Directions Teller and her Miss Information Booth

Wiz-z-zers

Wiz-z-zers are gyro-powered toy tops that spin crazily when their tips are wound. Produced in many incarnations by Mattel during the late nineteen-1960s and well into the ‘1970s, these wild whirring tops were a perfect fit for the Upsy Downsy line, and were adapted as a pair of bizarre vehicles, each coming with its own pilot character. Mattel inadvertently reversed the names of the two Wiz-z-zer-riding characters in the group cast picture shown on the backs of the toy Play Mats, making the whole endeavor all the more confused.

  • The Furry Hurry Wiz-z-zer with Hithery Thithery (Upsy)
  • The Hairy Hurry Wiz-z-zer with Skelter Helter (Downsy)

Playsets

  • HAPPY GO-ROUND

The Happy Go-Round Playset features a dazzling three-car carousel. The cars in question are Bugabouts (similar to Tickle Pinkle’s car, but in different colors), which are connected to the central umbrella support by a three-way axle, so that all the cars rotate around the wobbly platform at once. The Set also includes an extra-large Playland Mat, a Magic Bridge Clip, a streetlamp, a fence, an Upsy Downsy Daisy, and most importantly, exclusive Upsy patrons Foozie Woozie and Tingle Dingle.

  • FUNNY FEEDER

The Funny Feeder is the Downsy Land Hamburger Stand. The strange contraption features a spring-loaded tongue sticking out of its huge, grinning mouth (the better to toss plastic hamburgers towards customers with). The Feeder is manned by Downsy cook Short Order and Gooey Chooey, who has been characterized as either Short Order’s waitress, or his best customer, or possibly BOTH (the books were kinda vague). The Set came with an over-sized Playland Mat, a Magic Bridge Clip, a fence, a streetlamp, a Billboard (Advertising “Downside-Up Burgers”), a serving tray, and three of the afore-mentioned burgers, ready for launching.

Eight of the main Upsy Downsy characters were spotlighted in a series of lush, colorful (and slightly psychedelic) Storybooks that chronicled their crazy adventures.

There was also a larger book, Welcome to Upsy Downsy Land, which introduced the Happidiculous World and its inhabitants as a whole.

This book told of the surreal origins of the Upsys and Downsys. They were once merely flowers, covering an entire world made of fuzzy dandelions. A sentient wind called The Great Huff passed by this world long ago, and, having his nose tickled by the dandelions, blew them all away. As the dandelions fell back to earth, some of them fell through a rainbow, and were magically changed into rightside-up beings known as Upsys. Other dandelions fell through a storm cloud, and became upside-down creatures called Downsys. The two factions, despite each being the others’ polar opposite, got along famously, and developed their own little civilization, which came to be known as “Upsy Downsy Land”.

The Storybooks

  • “Welcome To Upsy Downsy Land”
  • “Flossy Glossy and The Hard-to-find Fire”
  • “Tickle Pinkle and The Beautiful Birthday Party”
  • “Pudgy Fudgy & The Whirl-around Picnic”
  • “Baby So-High and The Just-Right Pet”
  • “Downy Dilly and The Monster Trick”
  • “Pocus Hocus and The Magic House-Tree”
  • “Mother What Now and The Mixed-up Treasure”
  • “Miss Information and The Upsy Downsy Circus”

1992 Hasbro Kitty, Puppy, Bear surprise plush toys

27 Oct
1992 Hasbro Kitty surprise with 3 kittens

This item sold for $79.99

In the early 1990’s Hasbro came out with pregnant mother cat, dog, bear, and pony plush toys. These toys came in a variety of colors to choose from: pinks, purples, browns, teals.  They had a velcro opening on their stomachs and a cloth pocket inside of them that held three, four, or five babies.  Of course, every child wanted to get the mother who would “give birth” to five babies. How did the good 1990’s parent ensure that they would purchase the correct plush toy that had 5 babies as opposed to only 3?

Well,  those poor parents had to settle for a lottery system: only 20% of the toys had the maximum of 5 babies; most had only 3. I am sure that there were many disappointed children out there, and many parents pulling out their own hair in frustration as they tried to console the crying birthday girl!

VINTAGE 1978 Mattel HUG N’ TALK NAPPER the dog plush toy

23 Oct

VINTAGE 1978 Mattel HUG N' TALK NAPPER the dog

 

In 1978, Mattel produced a dog named hug n’ talk Napper. He was 13″ long with light brown fur with ears and tail being a darker brown. He has a distinctive patch on his back that is shaped like a daisy. The patch says, “hug me”. When Napper is squeezed he says 6 different phrases: My name is Napper,  I get so lonely,  You’re so good to me,  Ruff ruff rub my tummy,  Im sleepy,  Ruff ruff ruff. Napper does not require batteries; instead he has a record player inside of him. He is like the more familiar pull-string talking toys except instead of a pull-string starting the talking mechanism, a squeeze does.

You can see the distinctive daisy patch on his back

This is a highly sought after and highly desired collected. Extremely hard to find!!

Holly Hobbie plush dolls – a 1970’s sensation!

23 Aug

Holly hobby hobbie knickerbocker 7" plush doll

 

Where did these plush dolls get their name?

Holly Hobbie (born 1944) is an American writer and illustrator. She was born Denise Holly Ulinskas and she married Douglas Hobbie in 1964. She and her husband currently reside in Massachusetts. Read more about the real Holly Hobbie here: http://www.hollyhobbieworld.com/holly.htm

In the early 1970s, Hobbie sold distinctive artwork of a cat-loving, rag dress-wearing little girl in a giant bonnet to American Greetings. This series of illustrations became immensely popular and her originally nameless character became known as “Holly Hobbie”.

How did the artwork come to be a doll?

In 1973 and 1974, Holly Hobbie was working at American Greetings under art director Rex Connors. Rex was responsible for launching “blue girl” as the most identifiable of the Hobby characters. Bob Childers, a veteran concept artist and designer was also working with Rex on the “blue girl” project at that time. Childers insisted that there should be a doll. Since no one seemed to listen, Childers went home and, on his own time, hand-stitched the first prototype and presented it to Connors. Rex then took the doll to Tom Wilson, Creative Vice President, after which American Greetings approached Knickerbocker Toys concerning the Holly Hobby license.

And the rest was history……………

In 1974, Knickerbocker Toys licensed the Holly Hobbie character for a line of rag dolls, which were a popular toy for young American girls for several years. Knickerbocker produced the Holly Hobbie doll and a line of dolls called Hollie Hobbies friends.

They were Carrie, Heather, and Amy. Each of the dolls wore “pioneer” style clothing that you would expect to see a young girl in the 1800’s in the American west wear:  bonnets, pantaloons and calico frocks. They all wore their hair in a style of the same era: parted down the center with long braids to each side of their heads. Each of the dolls was caucasion.

Holly Hobbie

Holly Hobbie has brown eyes, and very light brown hair. She wears a blue patchwork dress with trim in a blue print over a white background. Her bonnet and pantaloons are a coordinating blue calico print. This is the traditional outfit for Holly Hobbie. Some Holly Hobbie dolls featured her in a pastel patchwork dress with light blue calico trim and matching bonnet. Her pantaloons were blue circles over a white background.

Day and Night Hollie Hobbie

This was very special Holly Hobbie doll! Her eyes were blue and her hair was sandy blond. By pulling the bows located on each side of her bonnet, you could open and close her eyes!! Here dress could also be worn 2 ways: ankle length blue checked gingham, or patchwork skirt. Rare and hard to find doll.

Other Holly Hobbie Merchandise

 There are plates, pins, lunchbox & thermoses, cake decorating kits…….all available with the Holly Hobbie image!!

Holly Hobbie in the media

Nick Jr aired a movie titled Holly Hobbie and Friends: Surprise Party. It is available on DVD. Holly Hobbie and friends also has a DVD series comprising of numerous titles.

What’s Holly Hobbie been doing recently?

Mattel released a brand new Holly Hobbie doll line during 2006, which includes Holly (blue eyes & blonde hair), Amy (green eyes & red hair), and Carrie (brown eyes & black hair). The dolls feature an all new face sculpt, a new body style, and flat feet. There is also a series of smaller Holly, Amy, and Carrie figures; each of these figures arrives with a farm animal (Holly has a dog named Doodles, Amy has a pig named Chedder, and Carrie has a cat named Bonnett). Separate doll outfits are being sold; each outfit can be customized by the child or the collector. This new doll line is cute and craft-themed. Holly Hobbie (the cartoon) also has three popular songs, two sung in her own voice, “Just Like You” and “The Things That Make You Special”, LeAnn Rimes sang “Twinkle in Her Eye”, the theme song.

The newest Holly Hobbie dolls are very nice, but my heart belongs to the vintage Holly Hobbie dolls by Knickerbocker!
