Comic Book Ads!
First up in this display of comic book ads of yore is this ad that appeared on the inside front cover of Hanna-Barbera Fun-In #5, and it's a mail in offer for an inflatable Fred Flintstone (very few of which probably survive to this day). You know what strikes me about this? The really weird look the girl is giving the inflatable Fred! Creepy, isn't it?
And next, here's this ad for "The Critters." You know, if I lived somewhere that had these four things on the wall, you know what I'd need? Let's see, turn the page of the comic book...
Ah, thank you, Daisy BB Guns! Just what I would need if someone had such obvious targets set up somewhere!
And here's a Kenner SSP ad -- and I don't remember any of these specific designs!
