    Question Topo Gigio?

    Anyone remember a mouse, puppet character, think he was on a saturday night called Topo Gigio? I had the figure/doll of him, long ago.

    i am new to this site and i notice that you posted this request some time ago, but i remember Topo Gigio!

    as a very small child my mum would make me pretend to walk Topo Gigio along the pavement to get me to move along faster.

    i loved him

    if you go you ebay, they have a massive range of plush toys on sale, apparently he is very popular in South America.

    Here is a vintage Topo Gigio doll from the Ed Sullivan show of the 1960's and70's. Topo is plastic and stands 10 1/2" tall. He is wearing a pair of striped pants that say "Ernie Engineer" on a plastic button. He is in great condition, just some paint rubbed off his nose and cheeks. He was made by Huron Products Co.

    I have heard of the name from looking at 1960s TV schedules - wasn't it someone who was a magician or something?
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    I gathered that he was a mouse, but I thought he was something else as well as a mouse.
