Misc. Disney - Unca Jeffy's Toy Box

Wayyyyy in the depths of "Unca Jeffy's Toy Box" are some treasures from deep in Jeffy's childhood. Dusty, scuffed and just a tad broken (much like Jeffy's memories) are glimpses of happiness from days gone by. ...and SOME were even licensed by Disney!

Here's a slick little Mickey Mouse ice cream truck. What could bring more light into a childs eyes than Mickey Mouse AND ice cream? Not much, says I...

Mickey's left arm is a casualty, but he can still steer that thing like a sumbitch!

Ice cream treats by the score, and for the low, low price of 5 and 10 cents!

Here's Mickey in a snappy roadster...

....he apparently got this bad boy up to a speed which blew the canopy cleaaaaaaaaaan off. Little speed demon rodent.

Speaking of speed, Mickey was apparently also into drag racing. Seems he blew a tire on this one...hell, the whole dang wheel...

...but he still looks cool. And the chicks dig him.

Coolest of all of these little Disney automobiles, this one is die-cast metal and features NOT just representatives of Disney's big 3 (Mickey and Donald) but they're getting chauffered by Pinocchio hisself. Those feature film stars always had to cater to Disney's short subject stars.

Here, in the "Nutty Mads" tradition, monochromatic, plastic extrusion mold, estra sturdy Disney pals! M-I-C...K-E-Y.....M-O-U-S-E!

...the cows and the chickens, they all squawk like the dickens, when they hear my little Minnies Yoo Hooooooooooooooo!".

"Quack, quack, quack, Donald Duck, Gee I think he's cute! Quack, quack, quack, Donald Duck, in his sailor suit!".

And Pluto. Couldn't talk, didn't wear clothes, walked on all fours and ever had a song of his own. So sad.

Hi kids!

Goodbye Mickey! I'm sure there's more of you in the toy box.

We'll visit you another day.

Talk to you soon.

I was an Ice-Cream Man sumbitch at one time~ and seeing Mickey in that truck brought back a freezer full of sweet memories.

My favorite, though, is the one with Pinocchio. What a shameful way to spend his twilight years, catering to a rat & a duck~!

I hope the memories didn't include the continuous loop of whatever tinkly jingle played on your truck. I'm thinking the nightmares of that would drive any normal man insane.
