What Is This?

I found this at a tag sale today buried in a box of junk. They only wanted 25¢ for it, but I ended up getting it free when I threw it in with a bunch of stuff my buddy bought.

There are no markings on it. I assume it's a finger puppet. It has a face on the other side with it's mouth closed. Is it a werewolf? Cereal premium? Is it from the 70s? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think it's a Cereal premium, Cereal premium's usually aren't painted like the eye's for example, It look's like it came from the late 70's or early 80's, But my guess is it's either a cheap made in China finger puppet or pencil topper, Or something that McDonalds or Burgerking gave away back then or maybe not, I don't recognize the character but for some reason he looks familiar.

Thanks orion24. This thing is a mystery. The opening on the bottom seems too big to be a pencil topper, but I don't know. It kind of looks like Fruit Brute. But I couldn't find anything with a Google search.

You may be right Erick, But I never saw a Cereal Premium that was painted, Unless whoever had it before you Painted the eyes, In any case it's a nice find. :)
