GEMMY TO DEBUT NFL "PIGSKIN PETE"

Gemmy Industries, Inc. proudly announces Pigskin Pete™, the 2nd in a collectible series of animated bobblehead dolls. At the push of a button, Pete makes your team's colors come to life in historic sound and entertaining motion.

The National Football League has again teamed with Gemmy Industries to create this one of a kind football collectible. Inspired by the original 1960's NFL bobblehead dolls, Pigskin Pete follows up the amazing success of Rockin' Randall™, the MVP of the 2001 season. Rockin' Randall features the Hank Williams, Jr. football anthem "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over For Monday Night Football."

Standing 17 3/4" tall and weighing almost three pounds, the piece is available in all 32 NFL teams, including the Houston Texans™. The uniforms feature the colors and logos of your favorite teams, updated for the 2002 season. 

Pigskin Pete's lightning feet rush down the field as he recounts classic NFL Films moments in the powerful voice of John Facenda. Utilizing Gemmy's Synchro-motion™ technology, Pete moves his mouth to the words as his legs actually run!

The memorable music of Sam Spence, Tom Hedden and David Robidoux complete the gritty realism of this limited edition, numbered collectible.

Pigskin Pete will make the first appearance of his rookie season Labor Day weekend on the Home Shopping Network. 

Based in Irving, Texas, and established in 1984, Gemmy Industries, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of animated products, gifts and novelties that make people smile. For more information about Gemmy Industries, Inc. products, visit www.gemmy.com.
