The Nauga Monster

Meet Nauga the 60's monster-like mascot for naugahyde. The ad campaign asserted that naugahyde was obtained from the skin of an animal known as a "Nauga" and emphasized that, unlike other animals, which must typically be slaughtered to obtain their hides, Naugas can shed their skin without harm to themselves.

They make Nauga toys too...if you are lucky enough to find them.

Did you notice that those Naugas look a lot like the Bumble from the Rankin and Bass Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer special?

So that's what a Nauga looks like!

I always thought they were mythical, like the Snuffleupagus...
