Deep Drawn Gorilla

Post by Donovan » Sun Jun 22, 2014 12:00 pm

I came across this piece in a (mostly) CJ lot. I don't believe it's CJ but thought I see what you all think. It's deep drawn like many early CJ stand ups.

It's quite a bit larger than even the largest CJ deep drawn pieces as you can see from the monkey size comparison. It also has small holes in the feet which seems like it belonged to some sort of display.

It almost looks like some type of cartoon character but I can't place it.

I was looking through some old threads and came across one started by spudgy a couple of years ago, asking the exact same question, only his gorilla was pink. He even photographed it along with the same CJ monkey prize for comparison. Too funny! :)

The consensus was as I thought, it's not a CJ prize.

It may not be a Cracker Jack prize, but it's still a great piece!

Would this be MacGilla Gorilla from cartoon fame?
