Duffy Popular nautical teddy bear character, with Mickey Mouse-shaped markings on his face and paws, at Tokyo DisneySea since Winter 2005. The backstory is that Minnie had made a teddy bear for Mickey on the night before he embarked on a long ocean voyage. The bear had originated, as the “Disney Bear,” at the opening of Once Upon a Toy at Downtown Disney Marketplace at the Walt Disney World Resort in July 2002, but he was later named and adapted with themed clothing and the backstory for Japan. A girlfriend, Shellie May, was added in 2010.
