A Yomega Chara Brain containing two miniature characters -- in this case, Gumby & Pokey -- licensed from Prema Toy Co. The characters were encapsulated in one halve; the other halve contained Yomega's Power Brain auto-return mechanism. The yo-yo was distributed by Yodel Co., Ltd. Of Japan.

There were three different Chara Brain yo-yos that you could collect in the Gumby & Friends series:

Gumby & Friends
Gumby & Pokey contained in a translucent green body
Gumby & Prickle contained in a translucent red body
The Blockheads contained in a black body

Oddly enough, the package front is in English and the package back is in Japanese.

Besides the Gumby & Friends series, Yodel distributed two other series using the same Power Brain yo-yo with enclosed miniature figures:

Sesame Street
Elmo & Zoe contained in a translucent red body
Cookie Monster & Grover (seen in this exhibit) contained in a translucent blue body
Big Bird & Oscar the Grouch contained in a translucent yellow body

PaRappa the Rapper
• PaRappa (Parappa the rapper, the hip-hop hound himself. Catch phrase "You gotta believe!")
& Sunny Funny (PaRappa the rapper character) contained in a translucent orange body
• PaRappa & PJ Berri (PJ is a DJ at a night club in the Parappa series. PJ is Parappa's best friend but has an eating and sleeping disorder that makes him seem distant.) contained in a translucent purple body
• PaRappa & Chop Chop Master Onion (Chop Chop Master Onion is the owner of Fruites Dojo in the game Parappa The Rapper. He is the first rapper Parappa encounters.) contained in a black body

Original retail price: $12 US.

Any of these encapsulated miniature rubber character Yomega yo-yos are challenging to find.
