Disney Goebel DIS 138 - Tuffy the Orphan Kitten Salt and Pepper

Another mis-identified Tuffy by the Goebel company, this S&P set is essentially identical to the covered dish of DIS 104, and again has a Figaro label. Make sure you read the posting on DIS 104 for details on why this is NOT Figaro.

Disney Goebel DIS 135 - Lucifer (?)

Again, not sure, but both TOMART and the German Goebel book list this as Lucifer. TOMART adds "cat with upright tail"

A new photo has surfaced, this time with a named label - Figaro.  But, as we've seen in the past, labels can lie.  But this sure looks more like Figaro than Lucifer to me.

Disney Goebel DIS 133 - Pinocchio Display Plaque

I'm not sure what this is, my guess is that it is similar to DIS 152, but the German Goebel book calls it Bambi Display Plaque Pinocchio...which sounds odd. TOMART describes it as "open book with standing boy as display plaque." So my guess is that it is the same kind of thing as DIS 152 but with Pinocchio instead of Mickey.

Disney Goebel DIS 132 - Jiminy Cricket Display Plaque

I'm not sure what this is, my guess is that it is similar to DIS 152, but the German Goebel book calls it Bambi Display Plaque Jiminy Cricket...which sounds odd. TOMART describes it as "open book with standing figurine as display plaque." So my guess is that it is the same kind of thing as DIS 152 but with Jiminy instead of Mickey.

UPDATE:  Recently a number of figures from the Goebel archive have been appearing on eBay and elsewhere, this display piece being one of them.

Disney Goebel DIS 128 - Thumper and Girlfriend

Possibly the cutest of the Bambi figure is this one of Thumper and girlfriend engaging in some twitterpated play.

Disney Goebel DIS 117 - Bambi with Ceramic Butterfly on Tail

This is the only Goebel figure of Bambi that has a butterfly as part of the figure. There is a another Bambi later on that uses the same figure, but has an applied metal butterfly.

Disney Goebel DIS 113 - Bambi with Thumper

Bambi with brown Thumper. I know I've seen this with a gray Thumper but I can't find a picture of one

Disney Goebel DIS 111 - Bambi with Frog

The largest of the Bambi figures...and the beginning of another seemingly endless series of characters from that film...

Disney Goebel DIS 109 - Thumper

Sigh. Another Thumper. This is the same figure as DIS 039 and DIS 041, only this time as just a figure rather than as a vase or a shaker.
