Vintage tin wind-up walker toy manufactured by Louis Marx features high quality lithographed images of 1930's radio comedian Joe Penner dressed in a checked sport coat, red tie, blue pants, leading his duck "Goo-Goo" with one hand and carrying suitcase sized cage of little ducks. When wound up, Penner shuffles along, as as his dome-topped hat & cigar bob up & down. Duck and cage move on very small wooden wheels.

Penner (1904-1941) was a 1930s radio comedian who achieved fame with catch phrases such as "Wanna buy a duck?" & "You nah-sty man!"

One of Mel Blanc's first jobs on national radio was providing the voice of Goo-Goo. The mannerisms Blanc created for the Bugs Bunny cartoon character Elmer Fudd were reportedly based on the real Joe Penner.

Tin lithograph is in very good shape with good color; some light paint scratches & rubbing which are exaggerated by these pictures, and in person are largely evident only on close inspection. No rust and wind-up mechanism works well. Measures 8 ½" high.
