Ok, so I've tried searching for it. But Dave... Just curious, Why do you dislike Duffy? Anyone else want to tell me the backstory? I too am not a big fan ( he seems random). πŸ˜‚ 🐻

Sometimes when love is rejected, the jilted lover expresses their shame through dislike. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 10:44AM

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ The real story? - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 8:02PM
Here's the story: The story goes that Minnie gave Mickey a Duffy bear when he went out to travel around the world to remember her. Duffy is a HUGE deal in Japan, so big that he has his own land in Disney Tokyo Sea. A few years ago, Disney brought him over to the States in hope he would catch on. But, so far it has a little, not as much as Japan, but the cultures are different and looks like he'll be here for a while. I often help guests that visit from Japan and they often buy a lot of the Duffy merchandise because it is cheaper here and it is very hard to find some of the items in Japan, due to his popularity. - BaseballMickey_CM  7602.0 #11 11:01PM
Very informative. Didn't know any of this. - missmimi90  2032.0 #76 11:08PM
I wish he'd go home. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  690.8 #286 11:10PM
The story is that Mickey went on a Star Trek fan cruise and minnie thought that he would be lonely with other and George Taki so she made him a teddy bear to have and even though it was stupid the other characters liked it and they all wanted one for reasons I cant figure out and then it had a pet unicorn that really loved the band one direction so minnie made them a bear also. Then somehow they ended up in Japan and all the ladies loved him and he turned into a rock star - Dave  13499.5 #2 10:55AM
Well, that makes sense now and I'm glad it had nothing to do with Christmas!!! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 11:15AM
If it was popular in Japan, they should of left it there. The story of it just being Mickey's teddy is nicer. This story is lame. Star trek, one direction, unicorns, and Japan. I'm sooo freaking confused that I have just decided to turn that confusion to anger and direct it towards Duffy. If we all ignore it, will it go back to Japan? - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #176 11:24AM
you confuse me a lot SOA - Dave   13499.5 #2 12:46PM
I just saw the best picture of Duffy on FB from Inside the Magic today. It made me think of you @Dave. From the looks of it, Duffy has stolen a lot of souls.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  690.8 #286 1:01PM
I thought it was One Republic? πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MissMolly  1355.3 #129 1:18PM
oh yea I always mess that part of the story up..One Republic - Dave   13499.5 #2 1:57PM
They should just make a unicorn character....way better than Duffy - MissMolly  1355.3 #129 8:31PM
Buttercup? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 8:41PM
You're confused SOA??? Welcome to MouseWait!!! MazelTov! - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 8:44PM
Oh, I gΓ¨t it now! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ - LaPearleNoir  1789.7 #94 8:53PM
Thanks for clearing that upπŸ˜‰ - fab5  150.0 #2720 9:10PM
I had dinner with George Takei on several occasions. One evening he discussed the very situation that Dave stated earlier about Mickey on the fan cruise. So everything Dave stated is true. - friendlymouse  727.9 #266 10:11PM
This could be good. Duffy is super random, and his story isn't very compelling....I kinda feel sorry for him πŸ˜„ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 11:59PM
Me too! Kids must go past him and ask their parents who he is. Lol. - sunshinegates  745.7 #258 9:52AM
A friend of mine looked into his eyes and he sucked his soul right Duffy is creepy - greenalien39  426.8 #516 11:48PM
because dave wanted to be mickey teddy bear - pikarich  5232.6 #23 11:49PM
He even snuck onto my latest Disney mug. I was wondering who the random build-a-bear was in the character mural! - daddystud9  91.9 #3716 10:37AM
I dislike duffy too! It seems like Disney is trying TOO hard to make him a thing. I always walk by him in DCA and want to yell out that he's a fraud - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #176 10:54AM
Haha, that would be awesome - MissMolly  1355.3 #129 1:15PM
A non-Disney character taking up space is about as bad as Starbucks taking over the Market House. - msdizmaui  716.8 #270 9:07PM
I stay away from him because Dave tells us to! He must have his reasons. I wonder if it has to do with Christmas? - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 12:05AM
All things Jolly? - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 12:07AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ MrsS. - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 2:05PM
We were waiting in line to see Donald in DCA and Duffy was across the way and there wasn't anyone to see him. I kind of felt sorry for him. But not sorry enough to go over there!! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 12:10AM
Hahahaha - Lelundrial  656.4 #305 10:25AM
Awwww!!!! - MarathonMinnie  139.3 #2898 10:42AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ You are so cruel! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 2:06PM

Dave loves Duffers i have proof. - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 12:16AM
Are you going to bump his WDW in room Duffy cartoons? LOL - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 12:35AM
I have a lovely picture of you high-fiving The Duf. You look thrilled. I can tell you're a big fan. - OneDayAlice  497.4 #430 12:23PM
I have a problem with characters who can't autograph your book. If stitch can do it, Duffy should too. - randirella  355.6 #661 12:35AM
Sully can't and I love him. 😒 - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 12:41AM
True, I love him too (Sully) , I guess I just don't like Duffy :( - randirella  355.6 #661 12:46AM
I love Duffy as a teddy bear. Not sure about the character. I don't do character pics on solo trips, and since most of my previous trips were solo, I never got a pic with him. - brit_brit  308.3 #870 10:07AM
Personally I don't get the big deal. It is just some teddy bear. - Lelundrial  656.4 #305 10:25AM
I don't think he looks Disney enough. - Disneyjen  49.4 #4806 10:49AM
He does seem rather pointless. I mean, he's a teddy bear that's great. It just seems like, why was it necessary for Disney to have a teddy bear when they have the best icon of all in a mouse, right? I'm neutral on him, as far as feelings, but it is a real head scratcher. - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 2:09PM
Trying to think of any other character that was NOT featured in a movie or show of sorts. This is why I have no Disney association with him - misschurro  6362.5 #17 2:20PM
Plus, teddies have been around forever, so it wasn't unique, ya know? - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 2:27PM
HMACIF, He has made lots of cameo appearances in ABC shows... That counts, right? - brit_brit  308.3 #870 8:36PM
He has? For real? - LaPearleNoir  1789.7 #94 9:23PM
I do not know. None that I have seen - misschurro  6362.5 #17 7:30PM
Have you ever hugged Duffy? He's so SOFT! - chhunkie  311.9 #839 2:22PM
That could lead to a lawsuit. - Lelundrial  656.4 #305 2:23PM
The devil is soft? - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #176 8:36PM
The devil is soft like a creampuff! - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 8:42PM
Who knew? - chhunkie  311.9 #839 10:58PM
He has a Mickey patch on his bum cheek...lol - missariel33  2115.5 #72 8:46PM
Don't ask me how I noticed 😳 - missariel33  2115.5 #72 8:47PM
I am so getting a picture of that!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 6:42PM
I think that Disney saw how much money the Build a Bear company makes and thought they could do something like that... Hence Duffy! They made up some cute story and are trying to shove merchandise down our throats. - dolewhipkarlita  94.4 #3676 8:51PM
Well, that's one interesting and unique way to frame your perspective. - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 3:35PM
Or, you could not buy it. Just a thought. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚I now totally have an image of Duffy being shoved down someone's throat! LOL - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 6:45PM
He reminds me of that fabric softener bear. What's he called? Snuggles or something like that. That bear bothers me with his cute little cuddly self! Snuggles.... He looks like the snuggles bear. Sigh..... - LaPearleNoir  1789.7 #94 8:56PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. You are right! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 11:05PM
That ol' bear? Dave loves him! - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 9:10PM
Cuddly bears frighten bananas - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 9:30PM
I'm loving all these stories! Hahaha. πŸ˜‚Oh poor weird neglected Duffy. - sunshinegates  745.7 #258 3:15PM
All I know is my little girl has a 3-foot-tall Duffy that she CANNOT sleep without. Apparently he is quite adept at keeping the nightmares away. - cmogo  74.4 #4052 3:19PM
Wen Dave was a fury, the guy who played Duffy used to take his lunch money. - Mouse4life  1681.2 #100 3:23PM
Remember Duffy is just a bear trying to make it in this economy! - HollywoodGlitter  526.0 #396 3:26PM
I"m over here LOLing at people thinking a teddy bear is pointless, as we all pay homage to a mouse. - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 3:34PM
I pay homage to a little green guy, that is over 900 years old. - Lelundrial  656.4 #305 5:40PM
OOOOOoooooooo!! - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 6:43PM
Ha! True! It's kinda like finding turkey legs disgusting but then turning around and raving about plates of ribs, steak, fried chicken, corn dogs, or hot dogs covered in Mac and Cheese, lol--too funny. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 6:47PM
I'd like a skinny latte please and ten cake pops. For here. Right here. At the counter. - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 6:50PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 7:16PM
It's just that he's such a nondescript bear. I mean, we do love Winnie the Pooh, after all. But Duffy is just boring. Sorry, Duff. - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 7:53PM
And if you got a regular latte, you could only eat 5 cake pops! So that swap totally makes send to me. πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 7:54PM
Duffy is a gift to Mickey from Minnie before he traveled the world. It was primarily for Tokyo Disney sea and he did well there as the Japanese love stuffed animals and loved Duffy. I don't like Duffy either. - april_december  299.7 #917 5:45PM
maybe he never caught on that great it's because we already have several bears including Pooh bear! - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 7:05PM
Lol @this long post about Duffy. To funny. - dumbbunny  627.2 #324 7:50PM
I won't share the story that a CM told me about Duffy's true love invading DcA in the near future. But when it happens, just remember where you heard it first! Sorry, Dave. - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 7:55PM
Yay! πŸ˜‚ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 7:59PM
Let me know so I can pop some popcorn - LaPearleNoir  1789.7 #94 8:16PM
This has been moved to NEWS!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 8:20PM
Shelly May... YEAY, heard that from Luis , sorry Dave - Fairygodmother714-xCM  428.4 #513 9:06PM
Hahahaha. I'm dying! So glad I started this thread! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - sunshinegates  745.7 #258 9:32PM
Don't tell Miss Fit Mouse that Duffy hasn't caught on. - sr_citizen_space_ranger  70.0 #4162 8:41PM
My daughter loves her Duffy bear so i like him. She even took him with us to Aulani. But I do think there may be something with the build-a-bear theory. - disneyjuls  51.8 #4714 9:22PM
