The FUN ON WHEELS series was as expansive than the Miniature Sport Cars line. There were the four Popeye characters: Wimpy, Olive Oyl, Bluto and Popeye (shown above); and well as eight different Disney characters: Lady, Figaro, Pluto, Goofy, Mickey, Donald, Brer Rabbit, and Tramp (shown above).

Besides the above Disney and Popeye FUN ON WHEELS toys, Marx made a variety of other figures in this strange FUN ON WHEELS format; including dogs, donkeys, elephants (Dumbo?) and other animals. And to make things more confusing, the Disney FUN ON WHEELS toys came in two sizes: the miniature version shown above and a larger edition with rubber wheels instead of the red plastic wheels on the miniature versions..
