The "real" Floofy is a stuffed duck similar to these:
Floofy got his name from the old sitcom "Perfect Strangers," in which Balki (whose English was shaky) referred to his plush toy lamb as a "little floofy sheep." I always thought that was really cute. When I got this stuffed duck, I started calling him "the floofy duck." Eventually that became his name! Since then I've amassed a rather large collection of Floofy-type plush ducks. Most are made by Ganz, but the original Floofy is a different brand name, purchased at Toys 'R' Us.
When I was in seventh grade back in the early 1990s I worked on the school newspaper. I mainly did writing and editing, but we needed a cartoon. I got an idea for a character from one of my favorite plushies, and the Floofy comic was born. Floofy appeared in the school paper for two years. I have misplaced some of the originals, but most of them appear in this website.
