Marx Alice SP Figure

This figure is probably older than all the others so far. It probably came from the Marx Walt Disney Television Playhouse set from the mid 1950s. That playhouse set was the genesis of all the Marx Disneykins and 'kings to come. This figure, like all the playhouse figures, are slightly larger than the 'king cousins. Generically they are called 6omm, but in reality this Alice is only about 52mm, just a hair larger than the 'king. They are also sometimes called SP figures - SP standing for soft plastic, the material they are made of, which is different from the harder plastic of the later 'kin progeny. They came in a variety of solid colors, I've seen cream, green, blue and pink.
