Big Boy Bobblehead
The chubby boy in red-and-white checkered overalls holding a double-decker cheeseburger is the iconic mascot for the popular hamburger restaurant chain, Bob’s Big Boy. This collectible Big Boy Bobble-Head was the very first bobblehead manufactured by Funko in 1998.
The Glendale. California chain was originally called “Bob’s Pantry” until a cute chubby 6-year-old boy named Richard Woodruff (1932–1986) walked into the diner. At that same time, the restaurant manager was trying to come up with a name for the new double-decker cheeseburger. When the manager saw Woodruff he said, “Hello, Big Boy”. Right then he named the hamburger “Big Boy”.
