So, a Disney toy is making an appearance on the Weirdo Toys blog.
Well, not exactly.
Allegedly, Performo-Toy Company were selling Micky Mouse toys before the Disney character ever existed. There are even implications that Walt himself stole the character and name, but once Disney became the powerhouse with the animated Mickey, they annihilated any possibility for Performo to hold claim to its being the original (Plus, Disney’s Mickey has an “e”… so c’mon. That’s totally different.). Performo were even given a court order to destroy all original Micky inventory and collateral that made any references to him.
Don’t worry Weirdo Micky. You have a home here.
As practiced by most bloggers, I have not checked any facts. Pretty lazy, eh? Hey, this site is for entertainment only 😉
