  • 1) "Pogo" was apparently an early trademark used for the Pogo stick. George Hansburg created a painted all metal, enclosed-spring pogo stick, which was manufactured in Elmhurst, N.Y., and patented in 1919. Pogoing became a fad in Europe and the U.S. in the early 1920s, and the name "Pogo stick" became genericized.
    2) Walt Kelly ran a wonderful newspaper comic strip "Pogo", starting in 1948 and ran daily through 1975.
    3) In the 1970's, most punk rockers could manage the "Pogo", a dance which involved standing with your feet together and jumping up and down.
    4) "POGO" is a registered trademark of ConAgra Foods Canada Inc. for their hot dog on a stick in batter. Again, the term has become genericized, and corn dogs of this type are referred to as "pogos".
