In the aftermath of the fiery demise of Music-toons Production, a somewhat phoenix rose out of it ashes. One of the now unemployed sales force, a man by the name of Arturo Sukini created a small fortune from the salvaged image of the Doof.
Sukini, who everybody called Sal, was a smart and resourceful man. Losing his job at the studio was not a great setback. He was a salesman and knew that all he needed was a product to sell. He remembered befriending in a bar an out of work chemist, Earl Headly. He looked up Headly, offered him a business opportunity and together they developed a line of medical salves and ointments. In 1939, Doof Wonderments was in business. As the story goes, it was the salesman's use of the Doof image to represent the brand that fueled sales. He saw how Micky Mouse’s image was very successful and he banked on the Doof to appeal to the public as well. Doof Wonderments products made a modest profit for the two men at first but things quickly ended with tragedy. It was discovered that many of the chemicals that Headly used, when mixed with each caused strange abnormalities to the people who were using them. People were literally losing the use of arms and legs and the dead appendages were wilting off their bodies. Soon people began protesting and demanding refunds from the company. Getting no response from the company, an angry mob stormed the Wonderments factory and set fire to it. The two owners made their way out a back door and into a waiting car that was never seen above the equator again. Afterwards, the victims, their families and the people who supported them formed a grass root political group, Doof Culture and tried to get their voice heard in Washington about regulations on cure-alls, but with the declaration of war by Japan on the United States, the group disbanded as many of its members enlisted in the armed forces.
