Eskimo Joe from Eskimo Joe's in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Celebrating 31 years in 2006 Eskimo Joe's is a popular and well-known bar and restaurant near Oklahoma State University known as "Stillwater's Jumpin' Little Juke Joint". This Eskimo Joe is a pellet filled plush doll with a very big smile and wearing his original faux suede clothes. He is approximately 11 inches tall.
According to Eskimo Joe's website, Eskimo Joe's was the brainchild of Steve File, a pal of Stan Clark since the two were in fifth grade. One fateful Sunday afternoon in May, 1975, Steve proclaimed, "Hey, I'm gonna open a bar!" Stan said, "I know where there's a two-story building for rent. I'll go in partners with you!" Within minutes, these two wild and crazy guys had agreed to rent the building at 501 W. Elm. Steve came up with the name Eskimo Joe's, and Bill Thompson, a freshman commercial art student, drew the famous logo with a magic marker. "I loved it the second I saw it!" Stan says. And so, Eskimo Joe and Buffy were born.
