The two "lost" Joe Ledbetter releases from Kidrobot

Post by trustpigs » Thu Nov 02, 2017 10:50 am

Back in 2006, Joe Ledbetter was supposed to have his first 8" Dunny released by Kidrobot as well as be the first artist to have his art adorn a factory-produced Labbit aside from Frank Kozik, but neither was officially issued. A CoART Magazine reader asked me if I knew the story behind these and, in truth, I did not… but thankfully Joe was willing to give a frank interview regarding them, explaining what happened to these two releases.

I agree with you, but that was a whole mess with the Mr. Bunny rights being locked by Wheaty Wheat at the time. Alas.

Thanks! I'm just obsessed with cataloging the history of these things while people still remember what happened. Otherwise, it'll just become lost information. What can I say, I'm a total art toy history nerd. :)
