Back in October of 2008, Jeannie asked us for help finding an Applause Roquefort the Pig.
Some months later David contacted us about this pig.
Your post was brought to my attention.
I wrote the book THE JOY OF PIGGING OUT which, in turn, was the basis of (and launched the product line) licensed by Applause in the mid 80’s.
There were actually a total of 6 plush versions of Roquefort produced, and I have some left-over stock in storage (never used) and would be happy to see if among it is the piece you’re looking for….
Hope this helps!
And now David has written us again.
Just wanted to update you about all this…
In a nutshell, I had donated the leftover product to be sold to benefit a new toy museum here in Los Angeles. As it turns out, they did have two of the plush that Jeannie wanted still in their inventory, and I have arranged for her to buy the pair from them.
Isn’t that an amazing reunion story?? You just never know how one of your requests for help will be answered. I want to publicly thank David for helping Jeannie get her Applause Roquefort the Pig and for assuring us all once more that there are a lot of very kind people in this world who will take the time to help out a complete stranger.
He did write to tell me that there are no more Roquefort pigs available from this source.
Merry Christmas to you, David!!!!
