A telephone designed as a plastic statuette of a striding Mickey mouse wearing a blue backpack, produced by Tyco in 1986.

The statue is set on a black base, and Mickey is giving a thumbs-up sign with his left hand, and holding onto one of the backpack straps with his other.

The "hiking" pose is relevant because Mickey's blue backpack detaches as a corded telephone.

The museum's example has the backpack and cabling missing, but because of the design, the piece doesn't look incomplete (or even obviously like a phone!) until you know about the missing backpack. Template:Tyco
