The 1986 ABC television special was actually called "Disney's Fluppy Dogs"... and this pin appears to feature "Fanci Flup."
The characer of "Fanci" didn't appear in the episode... but was likely intended for future episodes as she was featured in various products launched in association with the series. Even so... Fanci did have the distinction of having her own "Golden Book" (from Western Publishing).
Though it aired as a pilot for the series... after ranking as the lowest network broadcast of that week... the remainder of the series was cancelled and the remaining episodes never aired.
This was part of a group of Disney animated programs produced and directed by Fred Wolf.
As for the pin... is may qualify as the rarest of all Disney pins... though hardly anyone knows it even exists. That reality will likely hurt the potential value of the pin... but its rarity could create some eventual demand. Unfortunately... it does appear to have been previously damaged. It's also possible that it was simply a prototype that was never produced.
I'd guess that you have more of a novelty... desired by few collectors... but contributing to an informative back story behind Disney's 1980's television animation attempts.

What do you do when you can find no reference to a piece and nothing to compare it to? This is Fanci Fulp from Disney's book series associated with a Disney Thanksgiving special in 1986 called Fuppy Dogs. I can't tell if it was damaged and repaired or if it was converted from a pendant to a pin.

The most thorough listing of early Disney merchandise licensees (including city & state... and years of production... 1930 - 1984) is found in the appendix for Volume 4 of Tomart's Disneyana Catalog. Also... Cecil Munsey's "Disneyana" book is an excellent resource for dating early merchandise.

The front side of the piece does explain it!
That's the Contemporary Hotel at Walt Disney World... circa 1971. A rather hard to find piece of jewelry!! Congratulations...

This charm / pendant is consistent with similar jewelry previously sold at Disneyland...
I can't see the front of the piece... but I'm guessing that's a gold shamrock? In that case... it's possible it was sold at the Jewelry Shop on Main Street sometime around the release of "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" (1959).
If it is a shamrock... it could also have been sold at a later time... as the shamrock would have been a popular item to sell in the jewelry shop... even without a connection to the film... as Disneyland had quickly become an international destination.
Finally... it's also possible that it was created for the "La Boutique d’Or" (gold) shop in New Orleans Square after it opened in 1966.
Either way... it's a specialty item... as the 14k merchandise would have likely been behind glass in one of the shops.
Sorry I can't be more definitive... but without a manufacturer's mark... it's tough to trace. That's what leads me to believe that it was made for Disneyland (or possibly even later a shop at Walt Disney World; circa early 1970's). Those early shopkeepers did produce some customized jewelry in the early years... and someone obviously wanted this piece to be identified with the Disney copyright mark.

I am hoping to get some help identifying this pendant. It is marked Walt Disney Productions with the copyright. It has a small Pearl and Ruby as well. I have searched google and ebay and I can not find anything that resembles this. If you have any advice that would be wonderful. Thank you in advance!

Unfortunately... these serigraphs were printed in such tremendous supply in the 1980's / 1990's... that their value has fallen sharply since they were released. While they used to sell for $250 or more... today, the serigraph (printed) cels rarely bring more than $50 on a good day. There are exceptions... but only the uninformed would tend to pay more for a serigraph. Original animation art has now become the standard for most collectors.

Does anyone know when Disney stopped making their products in the USA, I have a number of items that I am trying to date. This would help greatly.
