QUESTION: I saw your comments at the Disneyana chat room and was wondering about the different trademarks Disney has used over the years. Which ones are old vs new?

Thanks,
Phil

==============================

ANSWER: As far as the basic trademarks....

c. Walt Disney Enterprises
c. Mickey Mouse Ltd.
1930's

c. Walt Disney Productions
1939 - 1984

c. Disney
c. Disney Enterprises
1984 - present

They used a few others used internationally; but those are the basic U.S. trademarks...

Hope that's helpful...

wondering found a Gund Winnie the Pooh plush toy about a year ago at a second hand store. He stands around 10-12 inches tall, He's missing his T-shirt, but other wise he's in pretty good shape. The tag reads:
"SEARS
WINNIE
THE
POOH
Copyright Walt Disney Productions"
and the other side reads:
Gund R(the r is enclosed in a circle)
License No. PA3"

and then it gives washing instructions

I contacted Gund to see if they could give me an appraisal and they replied that they could not. So I'm wondering if anyone could tell me how old he is and how much he might be worth. I have no plans to sell, I just want to know if I should seal him up and put him on display or not.

I appreciated any info you can provide.
thank you,
s.

I have 18 Schmidt Figurines of Pinocchio and Snow White and were purchased in 1989.
They were valued at Disneyania in 1999? for $4000 each.
Is there any way I can get the current value and the best venue to sell these?
The casting was limited to 1500 and they are all signed, numbered and have COA.
I have searched everywhere... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just acquired a Mickey Mouse Christmas figurine in some collectible stuff I bought and need some help. I can't find any info on it.
It says "Fabriche - KSA Collectibles' on the front of the tag hanging on his arm; inside it tells about the Fabriche sculptors, ect., and on the back it says 'Kurt S Adler, Inc'. It stands approximately 7 inches high and on the bottom of his boot, it has a Walt Disney Company sticker, and it is marked 'c 1989'.
I've looked all over, but can't find any like it. Anyone know anything about it or know where I could find out about it or who to ask?
Thanks for your help!

In response to the question about the Gund Winnie the Pooh plush...

Gund was a Disney licensee from 1947 thru 1971. As the first Pooh film was released in 1966, this particular plush could have been sold at Sears between 1966 - 1971.

Sears was one of the first stores to heavily promote Walt Disney's "Winnie the Pooh."

While a similar version sold at a Burbank auction for approx. $700 in the late 1990's, the eBay marketplace has somewhat equalized the market and several have sold for less than $100.00. Typically, the range is $50 - $75; depending upon condition.

Hope that's helpful...

In response to the "Fabriche - KSA Collectibles' / Mickey Mouse.

Fabriche is a brand of the Kurt S. Adler company (aka KSA), and would have been produced within the past decade.

Adler have been importing Disney Christmas collectibles for many years, and this item sounds similar to the Fabriche Santa collection. These figures typically retail for approx. $50.

The glut of Disney merchandise in the past 10 years has oversaturated the market, and few items have appreciated as many did prior to 1970. This is a lovely item, and it should be held for sentimental or display reasons; which is always the best reason to have a specific Disney collectible: Because you enjoy it!

The following question was received on Feb. 27, 2004:

QUESTION: I am just curious. How valuable are the ticket books for Disneyland circa 1960's timeframe. Are they worth keeping or selling?

ANSWER: Complete ticket books from the 60's; with admission ticket attached; still sell for approx. $100 - $200.

Individual E tickets often sell for $10 or more. There are various special event tickets that may sell for much more, but that will be due to their specific rarity, desirability and current availability within the marketplace.

re: the Mickey Mouse Club button

This is our FAVORITE Mickey Mouse Club button. Widely produced and distributed during the 1960's, this is the image most closely associated with Walt Disney's classic children's television program, "The Mickey Mouse Club."

The button does not have significant value due to the tremendous numbers of these items that were collected by children and adults alike. It would likely sell on eBay for $5 - $10. Even so, it remains a wonderful reminder of the unforgettable days when Walt Disney was still with us, and the future was bright for Walt Disney Productions.

Sincerely,
Dave

Hi Vintage--thanks for all the wonderful help you're providing. Could you look at my Donald Duck 30s figurine post below and see if you have any insight? (didn't want to repost it here and bog down thread). Thanks so much!

The post by chickjul regarding the Donald Duck figurine appears to be a Japanese bisque import; circa 1930's. The simple "copyright Walt Disney" mark was common; and the "2" is likely just a manufacturer's mark; identifying the mold or maker of this piece. The pieces were made by a variety of companies; possibly by George Borgfeldt Co.

Estimates on value are largely dependent upon condition. In 1992, the piece was valued at $225 in the condition as shown. Prices have likely fallen somewhat for this piece as eBay brought several similar pieces to market during that time.

Hope that's helpful!

Dave, thanks so much! That is quite helpful. At the very least you've persuaded me to put Donald on a high shelf where he's safe. On his other side is written "Japan," which confirms your ID of his origin. I won't characterize that mark as a numeral 2, since if you're thoughts are correct it's more likely a maker's mark. It looks more like half of an infinity than a 2. I really appreciate your thoughts on this.

Wow! I was cleaning out my grown son's closet and found an old metal and plastic Mickey Mouse Club pinball type game. It is approx. 15 inches tall, 10 inches wide and is marked "copyright Walt Disney Productions" "Wolverine Toy".
You pull the red lever back and shoot the balls up to the top past images of Mickey in a balloon, Goofy, Minnie and Pluto.
Do you have any suggestion about it's age or how to title it should we decide to list it? I believe it may have come from one of our parents who saved it from our childhood to give to the children but my son has no interest in keeping it since he's on his own and has limited space, the teen doesn't want it either and it's probably not a good thing to let the three year old play with although I bet SHE'D love it...

You will be able to view this item currently selling on eBay, as follows:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3178974982&category=2533

The Mickey Mouse Club pinball game is fairly common; as it was widely distributed during the 1960's and 1970's. We've seen them sell on eBay in the $10 - $25 price range on a fairly consistent basis.

Hope that's helpful...

That's it! I was searching under Mickey Mouse Wolverine Toy. Another senior moment I suppose. I must need a bit more pixie dust in the air around here.
Don't know why I didn't think of searching for Mickey Mouse Club items.
Knowing it's not especially collectible makes me feel better about letting the preschooler play with it now.
Thanks so much.

Hi Dave, I think I have a question that you will enjoy. What I have is a small booklet from the Disney studios titled Dispatch From Disney's, that was sent to employees who were stationed overseas during world war two. The cover shows Donald Duck throwing a tomato into Hitler's eye. It is a first edition, and I believe was the only edition ever sent out. There is also a foldout in the center that shows nude and semi nude girls as drawn by some of the Disney artists, and on the back is a list of all the guys serving overseas, including Hank Ketcham. The book is in great shape and has some fantastic articles pertaining to the valiant struggles of world war two. Any ideas on value? I am sure it is quite rare. Thanks in advance...Jeff P.S. I have other things to ask you about, if you dont mind

Jeff,

Yes, your "Dispatch from Disney" item is a very scarce item. It's a wonderful reminder of the commitment that Walt Disney and his studio made in supporting both the war effort and their employees who were serving overseas.

We have seen copies of this publication sell for $100 - $500. It usually just depends on the available buyers / bidders at the time of the auction. An eBay auction would likely sell in the $100 - $250 range; while an in-person auction (Disneyana Convention; Sotheby's; Christie's; etc.) could hit $500+.

In our opinion... it's worth holding on to! Pieces like this don't come around every day!

Best wishes,
Dave
