Disco Duck

Inspired by the childhood toys thread, DH and I have been chatting about our favourite toys from years ago.

DH had Disco Duck.

Disco Duck was a cassette player with a mic attached (like the old Fisher Price Ones) but in the shape of a cartoon ducks head what the actual fuck ....

Now, I love an old nostalgia trip and was very intrigued so excitedly jumped in Ye Olde Google for a look, typed in every search word and key word I could think of yet nothing comes up AT ALL.

So... AIBU to suggest have already suggested to DH that this is something that he hallucinated thought up in his little head many moons ago and doesn't actually fucking exist in any space/time continuum and Disco Duck is a total figment of his imagination OR is there someone out there who knows what the hell he is talking about?! And can provide photographic evidence.

Help us MN you're our only hope! I am prepared to be told IAU by the way!

There was a TV show, something like "Dooby Duck's Disco Duck Truck". Was it a spin off from that?

StewPots Thu 11-May-17 21:11:35

Dappled Absolutely no idea but will Google that and see what comes up!

DappledThings Thu 11-May-17 21:14:17

Ah, apparently it was Dooby Duck's Disco Bus. I think my version was better!! I would have been 10 when that was on, it's a pretty vague memory

Perhaps he has false memory syndrome and has concocted a hybrid of Doobie Duck's Disco Bus from 1980s kids' tv and the 1970s novelty record 'Disco Duck'. Then ascribed those characteristics to a blameless toy duck.

Dappled Nope no such merchandise! The search for DH's Disco Duck continues... smile

By the way, despite the promising title, Doobie Duck's Disco Bus was rubbish. It was like The Minipops with puppets (and minus the questionable bits).

Neetle gringrinHe's a 90's baby but quite possibly he had a few second hand 80s toys... I like your thinking!

TheFifthKey Thu 11-May-17 21:18:17

You used to be able to get duck hairdryers - that's what I immediately pictured!

StewPots Thu 11-May-17 21:19:00

Neetle Yes Google tells me it only ran for 26 episodes so I won't bother watching on YouTube grin

OhHolyFuck Thu 11-May-17 21:22:41

Not ed the duck from Saturday morning tv was it?

Or maybe I'm imagining that too....

TheSpottedZebra Thu 11-May-17 21:26:54

Was it also a lamp? There was a goose lamp/cassette player...

StewPots Thu 11-May-17 21:27:02

OhHolyFuck Nope tried that too... I swear he dreamt such a monstrosity toy Up but no parents have apparently confirmed it.

There must have been a gas leak or something, they all went on the same weird trip and hallucinated a duck shaped cassette player.

TheSpottedZebra Thu 11-May-17 21:28:46

this - although there seems to have been a few iterations of it.

Grimbles Thu 11-May-17 21:28:55

There was a song called disco duck grin

StewPots Thu 11-May-17 21:32:27

SpottedZebra Nope. Honestly it was a group hallucination, there's no record of this thing existing anywhere!! grin

RoseGoldHippie Thu 11-May-17 21:33:37

Mandala effect...?

bruffin Thu 11-May-17 21:36:13

My dc had that it was called Mothergoose.

TheSpottedZebra Thu 11-May-17 21:36:57

Ooh, there is even a modern version of duck thing +mic

minisoksmakehardwork Thu 11-May-17 21:39:41

Was it this? I can see how the smile looks like a duck beak. duck

minisoksmakehardwork Thu 11-May-17 21:40:59

tries again

TheSpottedZebra Thu 11-May-17 21:41:38

this? From good old Boots.

SaucyJack Thu 11-May-17 21:44:14

Was it a branded toy?

Maybe his Nana got it off the market.

StewPots Thu 11-May-17 21:53:25

Mini He says like a Mr Mike but it had orange duck feet then the "mouth" was orange and beak shaped and it had a green outline for eyes where the cassette went in.

Fuck me who made this apart from DH in his bloody head

StewPots Thu 11-May-17 21:54:24

Saucy Surely it has to have been?? A once-only made knockoff thing...

I'm grasping at straws now grin
