BUTTONS & PINS

tomjerrybutton.jpgOne of my little hobbies beyond (but related to) animated cartoons is collecting buttons of cartoon characters. Specifically, I like promotional buttons relating to animated features, TV shows and classic cartoon shorts. One of these days when I have some free time I’ll post a gallery of some of my favorites.In the meantime Mark Lansdown has posted a nifty website of his collection of vintage comic strip and cartoon character buttons which is quite nice. In the mix are several great animated items, including pinbacks of Felix, Popeye, Mickey Mouse and Betty Boop. A great collection.
