Cool Stuff: Hanna-Barbera collectibles, featuring Wacky Races and Yogi Bear!
Here's the first of a few Wacky Races items... this Dick Dastardly and Muttley car was produced by Corgi, and I don't recall if that's what Dick's car actually looked like in the cartoon...
Ah, I was right... THIS is what the Mean Machine looked like, as produced by Johnny Lightning! Very cool!
I had no idea that this Muttley clock existed... I've got a co-worker who's a huge Muttley fan, I probably should've pointed this item out to her when it was offered...
Or even this Muttley eraser!
This is one of those British hardback comics "annuals" that I wish had been distributed in the States, too..
I'm amazed that 1) I wasn't aware of this game when I was a kid, and 2) I didn't beg, whine, or otherwise try to cajole my parents into buying it for me.
A few more Hanna-Barbera storybooks here, apparently marketed as "Wonder Books."
Exactly what makes this camera a Yogi Bear camera? I know, I know, I probably asked that about the Huckleberry Hound camera, too...
A Yogi Bear canteen almost makes sense... a Yogi Bear picnic basket set would've made even more sense, though...
Yogi Bear Nose-Lite. Yep, Yogi's nose glows. Yes, really. Like Rudolph's.
Yogi Bear's Friends record, no doubt one of those that used imitators of the original voices for the recording...
Yogi Silly Soap! It's like Silly Putty, but it's really soap! I think this is only the second vintage Silly Soap I've ever posted!
Yogi Bear Tell-A-Tale book!
Another Yogi Bear Tell-A-Tale Book... and it's got the same title as the first one, too! Were they different editions of the same book, with different covers?
Next time, we'll at least start with the Lone Ranger!
