Notes: A-95 was probably revised from A-3, Early Skunk Baby. The differences between them are slight. A-95 is slimmer, with a more refined head, visible ears, and an upturned nose (see comparison photo).

In 1975, this mold was revised with fur detail (“textured”) and other body changes, but no change in model number or name. In 1978, the factory reverted to the original smooth mold.

Reissues of A-95 show little variation; however, the 1995 reissue has a brighter pink nose than earlier runs.
