Original Rempel toy Froggy the Gremlin the advertising toy from Smilin' Ed McConnell's "Buster Brown Gang" radio show that premiered in 1944. The original advertising character was Tige...if you're old enough you may remember this advertising slogan...."I'm Buster Brown, I live in a shoe. This is my dog Tige, he lives here too." Buster Brown was a major brand for children's shoes from the early part of the 20th century but Froggy didn't appear until 1948 on the radio show. He was one of the major characters, and in 1950 the show premiered on TV and featured Andy Devine. Of course I don't "remember" any of this...but it happened, or so I've been told!
Froggy is 5 inches tall and still "squeaks". He is soft and pliable with good color. He has one age spot on his face but on the back of his head he has many more, poor little guy! He will display well, just don't look at the back!
