Photo Gallery: Plush Ziggy (Christmas)


Five photographs of Ziggy dolls in colorful Christmas outfits. The lovable cartoon character was born in 1969, a creation of Tom Wilson. His son, Tom Wilson II, took over the strip in 1987. The comic strip is a Universal Press Syndicate product. An animated Christmas special, Ziggy’s Gift, aired on ABC in 1982. The slow-moving script was hampered by a decision to have Ziggy remain silent. The absence of dialogue was disappointing and inexplicable, since Ziggy speaks in the comic strip.  Fans of the special consider it to be a Christmas classic and applaud its message of love and sharing.
