SPARKLE PAINTS

sparkle3.jpgA friend of mine just pointed out this item on ebay – he called it a Holy Grail of cartoon collectibles, but I’m not too sure of that – but it sure brought back a flood of memories to me.I guess finding a Sparkle Paint set in mint condition would be a rather rare find. And get a look at this example of UPA merchandising in its waning days.The Dick Tracy Show with it’s wealth of ethnic stereotyped dectectives and policemen – and Mr. Magoo and his Chinese houseboy, “Cholly” (not Charlie). No wonder we rarely see these cartoons anymore.Ahh, the good old days…
