This photo is as close as Kathy was able to find to the way her donkey looked. The tail is NOT attached with Velcro or a button the way the newer ones are.
I’m looking for a Disney Eeyore from the 1960’s. While looking at other websites and seeing lots of candidates I remembered that my donkey didn’t have a white nose, and he was gray, rather than blue. Most every one I see has a white nose, but the original Eeyore did not. Also, he was sitting, rather than standing.
I don’t have any pictures of him regrettably … only fond memories. I’m fighting to keep my memories clean while looking at all these toys, but I’m still pretty sure I would know him if I see him. He was my best friend at 6 years old in 1965, and somehow after my parents divorced he got lost forever. But I never forgot him.
His name was Donkey. I don’t think I knew about Eeyore back then. We did not have a TV, and going to a movie was very expensive for a family of 5. But I’m pretty sure looking back that’s who he was.
I know the odds of finding one like him are pretty slim, but I just wanted to try.
