Found this guy at a garage sale a few years back. Between the date on the tag (1965) and how completely batshit he looked, figured I really had something here but couldn't find any information on him at the time.
Turns out this guy, who's name is Slurp, was put out by a company called Spectacular Products (now called Princess Soft Toys). Apparently, this was their first product, back when the company was just starting. In all likelihood, he was hand sewn by one of the original six employees of the company forty-five years ago.
I decided to give him a hipster mustache.
So, there ya go.
