I remember the controversy over the "action figure" of Steve the Tramp.
What controversy?
The packaging for The Tramp had some rather disparaging remarks regarding homeless people (something like he "smells like he sleeps in a sewer") not mention the depiction of the Tramp wasn't well received by homeless organizations/support groups. So they pulled the action figure not too long after it hit shelves. My parents actually bought a handful of them figuring at some point they'll be worth more money due to rarity. I don't think that panned out, today they don't sell for much more than they did back then. (Actually less if you think about it.)
