Skateboarding as interpreted by pop culture and punk rock

Boo Boo riding a skateboard with rev-up action from 1991. This was a McDonald's toy put out to promote the Yo Yogi! show which ran during the '91-'92 season. In the show Boo Boo is depicted as a a kid and instead of just a bow tie he wears some "hipper" clothes. Boo Boo's skateboard has some sort of exhaust coming off it so I guess it is supposed to have an engine. In reality it holds a motor that can be revved up (by pushing him forward). If you give him enough speed he will do a wheelie. The top of his deck says "LAF 4," which, according to Wikipedia, was the agency Yogi and his gang work for in Yo Yogi! (LAF stands for Lost and Found).
