There are a couple of threads that provide a bit more information on this topic, but the short story is that because there was another plush character by the same name produced by a different company, the Uglydoll version was retired. There are a few handmade versions that were released:

1 from intheyellow.com, Japan 2007
2 at Uglycon I in Los Angeles 2006
and I think there was another, perhaps a mini version, but I don't recall from which show or event.

There's quite a bit of discussion about this over on the new forum. Basically, David agreed to take TooDee off the market out of respect for another cartoony character out there named TooDee that "got there first." David didn't say whose character it was, but I'd be surprised (a little) if it was Gabba Hey.

It's too bad Toodee was discontinued altogether rather than just being reissued under a new name or something. If I recall correctly, his discontinuation was not under hostile circumstances, so I don't see why the person that David discontinued Toodee for would have a problem with the plush itself still being around. I mean, if Uglydolls can change colors, sizes, and -in Tray's case- genders, who's to say that Toodee can't don a new alias? I liked his design a lot. Let's see him back again! :-)

We were first but the respect and well wishes part was true. I wish I could say which company it was or anything else but I can't say a word more or they can take away my raft and wood cabin.
