Animal Lovin' Ken

When I saw the newest Toy Story 3 trailer I thought Ken's outfit was amazing.  Here he is if you haven't seen it.


I was curious where they came up with that ridiculous outfit/ascot.  Well in a recent interview Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich said "That Ken and that outfit was [based on] an actual Ken"


So what Ken is he based on?  Why it's Animal Lovin' Ken of course.




He looks pretty spot on to me!  If you'd like to read the whole Lee Unkrich Interview you can do so here.

  1. I saw the trailer this weekend too and laughed because I had this Ken doll back in the 80s! His arms were actually useful too. They don't make Ken like they used to.

    (I found you from doing a search on this Ken)

  4. I grew up in the 90s and when I saw the new Toy Story I freaked out because I still have that Ken and the whole outfit. It was given to me by some older cousins and I always loved him because his clothes were so ridiculous. Now I know he also loves animals, haha.

  5. If anyone is willing, I would pay 20 dollars just for the shoes of this doll
