    Old Disney Costume

    Hello.
    I won this at an auction today for $5 and I think it's pretty cool.
    However I can't seem to find any info on it.
    It's a Disney Ferdinand the Bull costume made by Spotlite Costumes A. S Fishbach inc.
    If anybody knows where I can find out any information or what it might be worth please point me in the right direction.
    I don't want to sell it. I'm just curious.
    Thank you very much in advance for any help you can give me.

    Re: Old Disney Costume

    Its from 1938 and if its a special one (used in a play or something) you may have gotten a bargain

    Re: Old Disney Costume

    disney costumes under fishbach began in 1937...Ferdinand was written around 1937 and highly popular...so guessing 37-38
    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow

    Re: Old Disney Costume

    i think you got a great deal, the costumes are collectible.

    sinps from the wik article

    With live theatre becoming rarer in the 1930s due to the Great Depression and Halloween becoming a more popular holiday, Cooper established Ben Cooper, Inc., in Brooklyn, New York, in 1937.[3][5] The firm assumed control of A.S. Fishbach, Inc.—which had a license to produce costumes based on characters owned by The Walt Disney Company such as Donald Duck and Snow White—in 1937 and began selling Disney costumes under Fishbach's Spotlight brand.[5][6] The two companies formally merged and incorporated as Ben Cooper, Inc., on December 8, 1942.[7]

    Collectibility
    A Ben Cooper Halloween disguise kit sold in the United States in 1979.Products made by Ben Cooper, Inc. remain highly collectible. Collectors prize the boxed costumes with mask the most.[29] In 2002, photographer Phyllis Galembo published Dressed for Thrills: 100 Years of Halloween Costumes & Masquerade, a book of text and photography which features some of the costumes produced by Ben Cooper, Inc.[30]

    Some examples of the value of Ben Cooper, Inc. products include:

    A 1958 Walt Disney Co. Tinkerbell mask and costume: $35 to $45 in 1995.[31]
    A late 1950s Rat Fink mask and costume: $150 in 1996.[32]
    A 1963 Spider-Man costume, which was the very first Marvel Comics licensed product ever made: $10,000.00 in 2010

    Re: Old Disney Costume

    Ferdinand was a sissified bull that had rather sniff flowers than do bull stuff.......if you know what I mean. I remember a cartoon from when I was a kid that Ferdinand was a sissy but got enraged when one of his little buddies got into trouble and suddenly became a raging bull and saved the day. That was in the 1950s, but the cartoons back then were from much earlier on black and white TV when there was only three local TV stations. Yes, I'm an old fart! Monty

    Re: Old Disney Costume

    Yes, that is the cartoon I was referring too, except my memory served me somewhat wrong. But he was portrayed as a sissy, just not the hero I remembered. Told you I was an old fart. A senior moment I guess? M nty
