The sexually suggestive Mr. Snuffleupagus

We spent the weekend at the in-law’s home in the Berkshires, where my daughter was playing with my wife’s old Fisher-Price Sesame Street Clubhouse, circa 1973.

The in-laws throw nothing away.


Included in the set is the fabled Mr. Snuffleupagus.

Were toymakers in the 1970s completely blind, or is it possible that millions of there were sold to children without ever noticing the unfortunate and suggestive shape of Mr. Snuffleupagus from behind?
