    From left to right, Beauregard Bugleboy, Howland Owl, Churchy LaFemme, Pogo, Porky Pine, Albert Alligator. Here's how they are described on the Walt Kelly site:

    "They came with various brands of Proctor & Gamble detergent in 1969 as part of a tie-in to promote The Pogo Birthday Special which aired on NBC that year. Rumor has it Mr. Kelly wound up being a lot happier with the plastic figures than the special. He personally sculpted the originals of the six: Pogo, Albert, Churchy, Howland, Porkypine and Beauregard."

    The photo on the right shows Beauregard shrink-wrapped on the side of a box of Biz. I did not collect them at the time (was focused on other pursuits...) but have since picked them up, one by one, on eBay. A few have been gifts.
