Strange Beanie Toy Cat and Bird
« on: Sunday 15 July 2012, 07:19 am »
I'm hoping someone can help me out with these. I have two stuffed toys that I remember getting as a pair when I was a teenager. They were bought used, so no tags, and I don't see any makers marks. They are distinctive enough that I could probably just do a Google search for them, but there are some things that I really don't want to see on accident, so I'm hoping that someone here can help me. They're basically a gag on Beanie Babies, same size, filled with beans, etc. The gag? They're both dead. The cat is roadkill, with tire-marks on his back, and the bird is headless. (Understand why I'm very hesitant to search on Google?) Ok, let's see if I can better describe them. The cat is orange, with yellow paws and muzzle. His tongue is hanging out, and he has one eye; the other eye is an "X". There are tire-marks across the center of his back, and bandages on his tail and arm. The bird is white and blue with green highlights. He doesn't have a head, just a red stump with fake blood. I'm pretty sure they were part of a whole series, though I'm not sure how popular they were... Sorry if this is totally bizarre, but I've always wondered what they were and if there were more of them. I think I remember there being a rabbit? Thanks in advance for any help.

A big truck was coming that couldn't be seen.
To the left and the right
this kat didn't look,
and now poor Splat is as flat as a book!"
