    Goliwogs?

    When is a Goliwog not a Goliwog?....when it is a nostalgic character!

    I kid you not, in the Marisota Christmas catalogue there is a set of three Goliwogs for sale. Decscribing it, the catologue blurb says, "buy this charming set of Three nostalgic characters"!

    Nostalgic characters!....what a hoot! LOL

    When you've bought your nostalgic characters you should listen to some nostalgic music.

    If I'm not mistaken, the Goliwogs made it on the 'most racist toys' list.

    As far as I understand, during.
    Agneta released one or two albums in Swedish while singing with ABBA.
    This song had the Swedish title "Gulleplutt", which probably translates to something like honeybun. I guess they just thought that the word Golliwog fitted to the music.

    Yes, released in 1974.

    Golliwogs

    Hi,
    These were just mythical magical toys. They were featured in the Noddy series of books too (which has been re-written to be more politically correct since Enid Blyton is dead and the copyright is most probably lapsed). So it's ok to change the word "gay" as in happy and gay to mean homosexual but it's not ok to have a dark coloured toy? When I was growing up, one of my dolls was coffee coloured, meant to be from Jamaica. I don't consider that was racist. I thought I was lucky because I was the only kid in the street who had one (I collected dolls). People have forgotten to have fun and everything is now examined in term of race and hate. How sad.

    On an off-topic and somewhat amusing note, the Golliwogs was the name of John Fogerty's first band!

    The Golliwogs were an American rock band that eventually became Creedence Clearwater Revival.

    The band started out, in 1959, as an instrumental trio called The Blue Velvets. The original line up was John Fogerty (guitar), Stu Cook (piano), and Doug Clifford (drums). In 1960, John's older brother Tom, who had been in local bands since 1958, began singing with the group.

    The Blue Velvets released three singles in the San Francisco Bay area, during 1961 and 1962, on Oakland's Orchestra Records. These recordings received only minimal sales although the second Blue Velvets single was added to Oakland's KEWB top 40 playlist by famed disc jockey Casey Kasem, who was employed at the station.

    Following the Orchestra singles, Tom began playing rhythm guitar in addition to remaining the lead vocalist and front man while John continued as the lead guitarist. Meanwhile, Stu Cook switched from piano to bass guitar.

    In the middle of 1964, the band recorded two songs for Fantasy Records, a local label based in San Francisco. The band was attracted to Fantasy because, in 1963, it had released a national hit by Vince Guaraldi, "Cast Your Fate To The Wind". Max Weiss, one of Fantasy's co-owners initially changed the group's name to The Visions, but when their songs were released as a single, in November 1964, Weiss re-named them The Golliwogs, an apparent reference to a once-popular minstrel doll called a Golliwogg. Seven singles were released in the San Francisco Bay area. While none of these broke out nationally, one, "Brown Eyed Girl," was a near break out in Miami, Fla., for four weeks beginning on February 26, 1966, when it reached #10 on Billboard's "Regional Breakout" chart for Miami (a chart one level below their Bubbling Under charts).

    Eventually John Fogerty took control of the group, writing all of their material, singing lead vocals, and blossoming into a multi-instrumentalist who played bass, keyboards, and harmonica in addition to lead guitar. By 1967, he was producing the group's recordings.

    In December 1967, the band changed its name to Creedence Clearwater Revival. The band's first album as Creedence Clearwater Revival was released in 1968.

    Since Golliwogs were banned some years ago, a whole generation of white women now seem to want to have black babies!

    Do you suppose they are in denial due to a disadvantaged youth?

    LOL!
