Given the popularity of my Cool Stuff posts, there are times I've wondered if I should shut down this blog and begin a new one with just Cool Stuff in it... what do you guys think?
First up today is this assortment of Harvey character coloring books!
Here's a catalog page from Hasbro in the 1960s. Now, one might think that Wonder Woman game was the rarest of the bunch, but I see those on eBay fairly often. I think that Flash game has got to be the rarest of the six here! I actually have that Batman and Robin game myself, but I'd really love to get that Superboy game, since Krypto's on it.
Here's another page from that catalog, with paint by number sets. I think someone screwed up on taking the catalog pictures, though, because as you can see, both the Jungle Book and the Doctor Dolittle sets show the same painting inside them, and the Star Trek one doesn't look at all like Star Trek to me!
Here's another page from that catalog, with the classic Monkees dolls, plus Mamas and the Papas dolls that I had no idea existed until I saw this catalog page!
Now, it's time for some Hanna-Barbera stuff! This looks like animation drawings of the Ant Hill Mob, as seen on Wacky Races and The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, but could just be character sketches.
The Ant Hill Mob's car, Chugabug or something like that...
Abbott and Costello!
Peter Potamus and So-So!
Atom Ant push puppet!
Bingo of the Banana Splits poster!
Banana Splits Club Kit!
Banana Splits coloring book!
Drooper plush toy!
This Kut-Up Kit has nothing to do with the Splits, aside from the card art...
Paint and Color book!
Hanna-Barbera (and Chipmunks) board games!
Boo-Boo Squeaky toy!
Laugh-A-Lympics Card Game!
Another Hanna-Barbera Card Game!
Still more H-B card games!
This costume is of one of the girls in Charlie Chan and the Chan Clan.
Hanna-Barbera "Color TV Set" toy!
Dastardly and Muttely figures!
These Dick Dastardly binoculars at least fit the character somewhat...
Dick Dastardly squeaky toy!
This Tablet is all over the place... we've got Peter Perfect and Penelope Pitstop as seen in Wacky Racers, but Dastardly and Muttely are presented here as seen on the following season's Dastardly and Muttely and Their Flying Machines!
We'll wrap up today's selections with this Dino Boy slide puzzle!
