On September 19, 2010, the character Duffy made his first U.S. appearance in Disney California Adventure for Annual Passholders. A popular figure in Japan’s Tokyo DisneySea, the character was introduced as Mickey’s special bear given to him by Minnie before he set off on a long adventure. Duffy, in his character meet-and-greets, wears a special sailor suit; guests can buy their own Duffy and customize his outfits in a variety of ways. Duffy would officially premiere at all U.S. Disney Parks on October 14, 2010.
