Not long ago, we explained how you could get a Huckleberry Hound bowl and a Yogi Bear mug for 50 cents. Oh, provided you sent in a Kellogg’s Corn Flakes box top. Of course, this is provided you’re living in somewhere around 1961.
We posted a picture of the ad for the mug and bowl, but reader Brian Miller actually sent me pictures of them.
I realise you can’t kill plastic, but it’s a little amazing that people have held onto things like this for all these years.
Brian sent me the pictures because of the popularity of the Hanna-Barbera memorabilia posts here, thanks to roving correspondent Billie Towzer. Billie’s back with more discoveries from around the web.
The Flintstones Friction Car is a 1962 product by Marx, which came out with the Flintstone Pals on Dino wind-up toy the following year. I can’t tell you about any of the other stuff below.
Baby Puss must have won the Petunia Pig Award for most-marketed character with the least number of appearances in actual cartoons.
My thanks to Billie and Brian for sending me their photos.
