Puzzletown part 5 close but no cigar

This is one that pops up on ebay from time to time.  It came out in 1977 and was sold through Halmark stores.  Its a revised version of Huckle cat with better coloring.  

If you want this for your collection its great, but it is not officially a Puzzletown product.  You will see the green disk base is missing and actually there is a cavity for your finger as it is a finger puppet.  The scale is the same I believe and even the eyes have the same dash threw them that the Puzzletown figures had. 

I am pretty sure there was at least one more figure form this production as well, not sure what though.  There was another run of finger puppets through mc donald's around the late 80's but those seem more like pencil toppers and less like a figure.
