Friendly and thoughtful readers are again sharing items from the old-time Hanna-Barbera world, so let’s pass them on.
Dr. Mark Hill, the Doctor of Pop Culture, sent a note after we posted pictures of H-B rugs with pictures of another rug. I guess it’s both sides as one is the reverse image of the other. The main cast of The Huckleberry Hound Show is featured.
Now some things from roving correspondent Billie Towzer. The Impossibles are from a date past the focus of this blog and I never got into them anyway. But here’s one of those maddening slide puzzles. Did anyone else ever try to take the pieces out to reinsert them and solve the puzzle?
What? Kellogg’s giving away a ’63 Ford Falcon? Not exactly a kid’s prize, is it? This, of course, comes from the back of a Corn Flakes cereal package. The example of the jingle is kind of screwy. The rhyme should be with “folk”, not “fair,” shouldn’t it? How about “articholk?” Oh, well. I’m not a Ford person anyway.
Good thing this isn’t one of those unauthorised editions. This comic book was one of a number copyrighted in March 1963 by Watkins-Strathmore Co., Racine, Wisconsin. Huck seems to have been replaced by Augie Doggie. I wonder if you got to colour Bill and Joe, too.
Ah, poor Yogi. Left alone to rust on an unmowed lawn.
At least he’s in better shape than this Yogi that a youngster rode.
Finally, Tim Hollis sent this note: In one of the early Jellystone franchise booklets was this stunning shot of the merchandise they offered in their souvenir shops. As you can see, some was produced especially for them (like the green plastic ranger hats), while others were items that had first been available a decade earlier (the Kellogg's mugs, the Yogi/Magilla coloring books, etc). If I'm not mistaken, that Day-Glo pink Yogi poster is the same one that was a major plot element in the Brady Bunch episode that was filmed at King's Island.
Thanks again to everyone who sent notes. We have a few more banked for a later post.
