Vintage Goofy skateboarder

Goofy has a history of appearing on skateboards. In Extremely Goofy Movie, Goofy’s son goes to college and enters the “College X Games.” It doesn’t seem that absurd now, actually. Goofy misses his son so much that he goes to college too, and ends up skating for the evil frat boy team against his son. There’s also a toy Goofy figure on a skateboard that was made a few years ago. The shot above is a toy that may date as far back as 1977. It’s from an expired eBay auction, but becasue I love you, and have a problem, you can look at more shots after the jump.

Here’s the description from the auction:

Nice vintage 1977 Walt Disney Productions flexible toy Goofy on his skateboard. It is in good overall condition with some minor paint loss on the arms and legs as seen in the photos. Goofy’s back is marked, “W D P – HK.” The bottom is marked, “1977 Gabriel – Elmwood Park, NJ – Pat. Pend. – Made in Hong Kong.” He measures roughly 6 inches tall.

Partially because it may be that old, this is a pretty cool toy. The age can be difficult to judge, even though the copyright says 1977. Some Peanuts merchandise seems to use old copyright dates that refer to the characters and not the date of the original manufacturing. It was listed with a “Buy it now” price of $35. If only I had that kind of disposable income…

    Of course, note that Goofy skates goofy-footed, as he is the origin of the term…he also surfs goofy.

  2. I had a couple Goof Troop figures (3″) on skateboards, but I gave them away as Xmas presents (part of a mini skatepark, homemade fingerboard set-up).
