Item/Description: 1993 Ziggy “Prisoner of Love” comic strip/cartoon/animation character romance-themed stuffed plush toy by American Greetings Corp.
***Ziggy is oh-so-adorably attired in an old-school ca 1930s-era movies/films “jailbird” prison garb outfit and hat of traditional black & white zebra-stripes, and on his chest is a big red heart with the words“Prisoner of L♡ve”(so romantic is this darling Ziggy collectible, that even the word “Love” has a heart symbol to represent the alphabetical letter “o” in the word “Love”)!
About Ziggy (attributed to wikipedia.org ): “Ziggy is a cartoon created by Tom Wilson, a former American Greetings executive.
Ziggy is a small, bald, trouserless, barefoot, almost featureless character (save for his large nose) who seems to have no friends, hobbies, or romantic partner, just a menagerie of pets: Fuzz, a small white dog; Sid, a cat afraid of mice; Josh, a discouraging parrot; Goldie, a fish; and Wack, a duck. The appeal of the cast is juxtaposed with the endless stream of misfortunes which befall Ziggy. The character is frequently depicted in surreal or arbitrary situations, though many jokes mine typical comic strip pop culture territory, such as computers and the perils of modern life. Other pop cultural references can be found in the archives.
Ziggy first appeared in the 1968 book collection When You're Not Around, published by American Greetings. The newspaper strip began in June 1971. In 1987 the strip was taken over by Tom Wilson II. The animated 1982 Christmas television special Ziggy's Gift, which contained the Harry Nilsson song "Give, Love, Joy", won an Emmy Award.
There have been annual calendars produced throughout the years, as well as various books, dolls, collectables, holiday-themed toys and promotional items.”
