"BIMBO" Betty Boop's pet dog, ca 1931-32, by Joseph Kallus (invented Mickey Mouse)

BIMBO, RESTORED.  New face, new joint, re-strung. Stands alone.BIMBO, Before repair.

Bimbo is Betty Boop's pet dog.  He was designed by Joseph Kallus in 1931-32, who also designed Mickey Mouse for Walt Disney in 1933.

Bimbo is a composition doll; the inside of his head is sawdust.  The outside was thick paint.  He was restored by a doll doctor in Texas. She also discovered that Bimbo was missing a joint in his arm and she had a new joint hand-made and inserted.  He was restrung and now is able to stand on his own!

The original label is on his upper chest beneath his chin. It has disintegrated but is still legible.

This doggy pet is very rare.  The last one I could find sold for $1,800.

Because it is not pristine, I am offering it at $1,000. OBO.  I also collect Carnival Glass if you want to trade.  My e-mail address is on my Members page near the big red marble.
