Subject: ewok look alike toy

Written By: Amanda (Guest) on 05/21/02 at 11:46 p.m.

I am trying to remember the name of a toy that came out in the 80s. It resembles a ewok in a way. It was furry, and wore a hood and cape, but its eyes lit up when you squeezed it. My husband says that it is called an ewok, but I remember it being called something else. Help if you can, PLEASE!!

Could it be a Monchichi? With the addictive theme song:
"up in the trees live the monchichis" come on you know the words.


mine never lit up though

*doing happy dance and singing*

...oh so soft and cud-dl-ly
Put their thumb in their mouth
It's really neat
Fun to play with their
Little feet
Ai yai yai
Yai yai yai
Happy happy monchichi!!!

*noticing silence and blank stares, slinking away shamefaced*

I'm pretty sure the cute little guy was called Chubbles. The one I had had a yellow furry face and a dark purple hood, and the eyes lit up yellow. Hope that helps! :)

Yep, it's definitely Chubbles - I just checked, there's one for sale on ebay right now (for $2.30 CAN).
