Another 'old friend' from childhood dropped in today as a permanent resident at Castel Crivens, over 50-plus years since I last saw him. So welcome back to Goofy and his yellow friction-drive scooter, the exact same model that Yogi Bear rides, both produced by Marx Toys back in the '60s. As you can see if you compare one with the other in the above photo, the exhausts are slightly different between the two, but there's a reason for that.
Marx, when it produced the Yogi scooter in the early '60s, didn't supply it with an exhaust; that was a later addition to their other scooter-driving TV, movie, and cartoon/comicbook characters. Not quite sure why, because I don't think that's where a scooter's exhaust pipe would be; more than likely it would protrude from under the back end and wouldn't be so prominent.
I made Yogi's exhaust, which is held in place by double-sided tape, and it was only because I remembered my original Goofy scooter having an exhaust that I added one to Yogi's. You see, I imagined that the one I had as a kid (I actually had two, but purchased at different times) must've had an exhaust because I remembered Goofy's scooter having one, but obviously I was mistaken. The fact that Yogi's scooter has no apertures for an exhaust to plug into confirms this fact.
Anyway, I don't suppose this post will be of much interest to many of you, but I like to celebrate whenever I'm reunited with an item from my past so hopefully you'll indulge me. And if any Crivvies had any similar toys when they were young, feel free to tell us all about them.
