The Wonderful World of Off-Model Old Character Merchandise

Snohomish, Washington–a little town I visited yesterday–is home to maybe the best selection of antique shops I’ve ever seen. And its largest store is home to an astonishing array of old cartoon-related toys. With a lot of this stuff, it feels like the manufacturer just wasn’t trying to depict the characters in question in anything like an accurate fashion, I took pictures of just a few of the oddball items I stumbled across–from a red Huck Hound to portly Lady and the Tramp dolls wearing human clothing to a multitude of Soakies:
