Magic Mountain Theme Park - Vague Recollections

Among those who may recall a pre-Six Flags incarnation of the Magic Mountain theme park in the Santa Clarita Valley to the north of Los Angeles, perhaps there are some (like myself) who remember a trio of furry, Vitamin F-fed trolls by names of "Bloop" (the male), "Bleep" (the female) and "Blip" (the infant of this pair) as were the resident mascots thereof, as well as appearing on all manner of souvenir items sold from around 1973 (two years after the park opened) until 1983 (four years after Newhall Land and Farming Co. sold Magic Mountain to Six Flags), when other characters replaced said trolls. Their fur colors varied from a deep blue to lime green to yellow and (towards the end) a California-ish orange with maroon polka dots.
