I’m celebrating again, folks!!! Connie wrote to me not long ago that she had the striped mouse, and I forwarded her email to Susie. Now Susie has written me back:
Thank you so much for the connection. I have been in contact with the person and she is sending the mouse.
What a great concept you have, quite clever. There is a zebra, a tiger, a elephant and a mouse in the series.
If you want to bring back some old memories, Susie found a site where you can watch and download the original Saturday Morning Cartoons Beech-Nut commercial, which has these striped animals in it.
Now we need to find the GREEN STRIPED TIGER that Phyl is looking for.
I’m looking for a green striped stuffed animal from Beech Nut Fruit stripe gum. I’m sorry I don’t have a photo. These were stuffed animals maybe in the 60’s for Fruit Stripe Gum. There were 4 animals…a zebra, and maybe a horse and an elephant. I know my green (lime) striped one was a tiger. I named him Toenail, and he spoke thru me in a funny voice. I would love to find another.
Thanks for your time!
Susie has emailed me to ask for help finding the Orange Striped Mouse in this series. She writes:.
I believe there were four animals to choose from when you sent in your money and the gum wrappers. Mine was an orange stripe mouse with big ears that had wire in them so you could shape them.
