Gremlin Gus Plush

Gus the Gremlin comes from Walt Disney and Roald Dahl's The Gremlins. Gremlins were often jokingly blamed for mechanical issues and mishaps by RAF pilots during WWII. Roald Dahl, while serving in the RAF, wrote a story about these gremlins, which Walt Disney later attempted to make into a film. In Dahl's book, the gremlins' motivation for sabotaging British aircraft is revenge for the destruction of their forest home, which was destroyed to make room for an aircraft factory. The principal character in the book, Gus, has his Hawker Hurricane fighter destroyed over the English Channel by a gremlin, but is able to convince the gremlins as they parachute in the water that they should join forces against a common enemy, Hitler and the Nazis, rather than fight each other.
