|The pin body is a thin strip with the "Snotty Six" flamingos looking down (three on each side). The dangle is "Our Hero" with his yo-yo. It is part of a 9-pin Cast set (#27755) that came in a plastic case.|
I have been told two different versions of where this originates: One says this was part of a "Fantasia 2000" movie premier giveaway; the other claims it was sold only at the Studio in Glendale CA.
In director Eric Goldberg's interpretation of the whimsical Saint-SaŽns' composition CARNIVAL OF THE ANIMALS, a flock of flamingos, affectionately referred to as the "snotty six," look down their beaks at a nonconformist in their midst. This rebel, whom the filmmakers took to calling Punkin, has a fondness for playing with yo-yos. Aware of the group's disapproval, Punkin sneaks his yo-yo playing in whenever and however he can, resulting in a hilarious and chaotic water ballet.
The pin measures 1 1/4" (32 mm) wide by 1 3/8" (35 mm) tall. The reverse of both pieces of this pin read, "© Disney, Taiwan."
