I'm sure if you are a Disney nerd (as my husband so lovingly calls me) you've at least heard of him.
Here is a little back story from the Disney Parks Blog.
"You see, awhile ago, Mickey was about to set sail on an adventure to visit friends around the world. Minnie made a special gift to keep Mickey company and she presented it to Mickey in a duffle bag. Mickey, delighted with his gift, pulled out the gift, a very special bear, and named him Duffy. Mickey and Duffy embarked on many special voyages and Duffy got to meet all of Mickey’s friends. Each time they returned home, Mickey and Duffy would share their stories and photos with Minnie. While on their travels, Duffy and Mickey landed at Tokyo Disney Sea where they have been meeting and greeting fans for the past few years.
Duffy is not just your typical stuffed bear – he’s Mickey’s bear and he resembles his owner. Duffy’s face is shaped like Mickey’s, he has Mickey heads on his paws, and he has a very unique birthmark on his hip. There is no question who he belongs to."
So, my questions are:
Is this a true story? Did Minnie really give Mickey this bear in an old cartoon at some point? Or did Disney make this story up to add another character and sell more merchandise?
What are your thoughts about Duffy? Love him? or Hate him?
