Bullwinkle Moose

Bullwinkle, the namesake of Bullwinkle's Restaurants, first made his debut as an animatronic at the Santa Clara location and has been a part of every animatronic stage show featured at Bullwinkle's. He currently plays in the final existing animatronic show at the Tukwila location. Bullwinkle plays a banjo while sitting on a barrel. In the original show, he wears an orange winter jacket. Newer stage shows have Bullwinkle wearing a “Wossamotta U” sweater. He ordinarily performs in the Center Stage, or in the fire station of the Northwoods stage show.

Most animatronics from closed locations get destroyed, while others are sold to collectors. SPC Animatronics is currently in possession of Bullwinkle from the Medford location. One of the remaining animatronics also performs in reskinned form as Eli Mule.

Animatronic Generations

Generation 1: Prototype
The original prototype Bullwinkle was designed by The Only Animated Display & Design Company. This Bullwinkle's mask appears to be lighter in color, has nostrils that are positioned slightly lower, has a wide range of head tilts, and knees that are positioned significantly lower.
Generation 2: AVG Design
The second generation, designed by AVG, made its debut at the Edmonton location, and consisted of an animatronic with slightly darker skin, slightly reduced movements, and more highly positioned knees. Some of these animatronics would later use Dreamation masks as replacements.
Generation 3: Dreamation Design
This generation was designed by Dreamation for the new stage show concepts. The masks for this animatronic were constructed of thicker fabric, almost resembling that of a stuffed animal. New animatronics would be designed up until around 2000 when the final Northwoods stages were constructed.
