    Saw it on Dizpins this morning. And it's not Wheezy or the Mary Poppins penguins! Gotta have it.

    That is from Mickey & Pals stores in Japan.
    The cold blooded penguin was released on Feb. 3, 1945 and was
    released as part of the feature film "The Three Caballeros"
    It features a penguin named Pablo who sails north for the winter from his home in Antarctica (the coldest place on Earth).

    Larry,
    Thanks for filling in the holes to my post. I did know all of that, but just wanted to make the point that there have been Disney pins of the Mary Poppins penguins, and a Wheezy button, but never anything of Pablo, who I thought (maybe wrongly) was too esoteric a character for anyone to recognize unless they have memorized "The 3 Caballeros" video.

    Penguins are so under-represented by Disney (in my husband's opinion) ... to have another penguin, and a pin to boot, is a happy thing in our household. :)

    me being a pin collector and DH being a LINUX enthusiast. We would have the perfect blend of a penguin on pin.

    The LINUX mascot "logo" is Tux. WIith a name like that what hat else would he be but a precious little penguin?
