Comic Con sights

Reasons I still go to Comic Con… to see stuff I can’t afford, but am delighted still exists. Here’s a few snaps from my iPhone:

A Scrappy booklet printed on fabric!
A one-page glossy flyer (not a magazine trade ad) sent to theater owners in 1954:
Disney is giving out these Oswald caps – and it seems like half the convention attendees are wearing them!

  • Geoff

    Really want those Oswald ears..
    But I can’t afford to pay $76 and up on ebay.

    • Josh

      Now I feel really good about paying $40 for mine back when they were being handed out at E3.

  • Is Gulliver not wearing pants?

  • Daffy with gloves…well, you don’t see that every day. Really digging those Oswald hats!

    • xevo

      Yeah, and get a load of the sad Bugs…

      And what are those things in front of the Andy Panda fig? They look like they’re covered in poo.

  • Is that Flip the Frog on those…what are those? (Third picture down)

    • Richard

      Those look like ceramic planters, if I’m not mistaken.

  • Sardonic Tuba

    Popeye smash puny humans!!!

  • top cat james

    No wonder our pal Andy Panda has such a pained look-those are some seriously diseased testicles he’s sporting.

    See the ramifications of consuming a treeful of spray-painted apples, kids?

    • Chris Sobieniak

      Of course reading up on pandas one time, it’s hard to tell them apart sexually as genitalia isn’t their strong point.

  • Bryan

    I have one of those Flip the Frog planters- he’s being chased by a turkey! I’ve never seen so many of those before!

  • The Looney Tunes figures were created by Evan K Shaw of American pottery in the 1940’s. The full set includes multiple Bugs Bunnies, Petunia, Porky, Daffy, multiple Sniffles and Elmer. Somewhere I came across an old article saying that Bob Clampett sculpted them, I’m not sure if this is true but it was intriguing.
