Well, my birthday was three days ago, and I've probably already posted about it by the time you see this (hey, I'm writing this post on August 12, trying desperately to keep this thing being published continuously, you know?), but I think it's safe to say that none of the items here showed up as one of my birthday presents (mostly because I'd imagine my wife had no idea I'd be interested in any of these things!):
Frankenstein, Jr. boxed puzzle!
More Frankie, Jr. stuff and other stuff after the jump!
Frankenstein, Jr. Tell-A-Tale Book original art! I wish I had this book, because I do have the Frankie Jr. Big Little Book, and that also has an "Evil Twin" story, and it'd be fun to compare them!
Funky Phantom cup!
Harlem Globetrotters Comic Card Game! This was about the only one of these that didn't have Jack Kirby artwork!
Goober and the Ghost Chasers puzzle! That's an awfully Karloffian monster they're up against, eh?
Square Bear from the Hair Bear Bunch cup!
Hokey Wolf coloring book from 1962!
Huckleberry Hound Color by Number book!
Huck coloring book cover art from 1960!
Huck Crossword puzzle cover art from the same year!
Huck Giant Golden Book from 1962 -- man, I'd love to check this one out!
A much later Huckleberry Hound activity book, I'd guess from the late 70s or possibly early 80s.
Huck Push Puppet toy!
I think this Huck ride-on toy is one of the odder Huck toys ever conceived... I mean, what's the connection here? Nobody rode on Huck like he was a horse in the cartoons, right?
Huck puzzle, apparently produced by Charlton!
Very cool Huck wall plaque!
This Huck Animal Airplane toy by Linemar shows how difficult manufacturers found it to be getting Huck represented in three dimensions sometimes!
Jetsons Fun Pad game!
Mr. Jinks puzzle!
Jonny Quest coloring book cover art!
A pair of Josie and the Pussycats puzzles! Below, the original art for some other Josie puzzles (well, one is for the first one above)
Josie magic slate!
I love this Kings Island candy dish that features the Banana Splits on it!
This postcard shows how much the Hanna-Barbera characters were incorporated into Kings Island!
And we'll, wrap this installment up with this Lippy the Lion Soaky! More H-B goodies next time!
