More Playthings

I've been at a loss as what to post lately - so much is already covered on others' blogs in detail which I probably wouldn't have the patience to do myself. So, while I mull, here are a couple more ads from the 1935 Playthings. 

It's interesting to note how Scrappy's design changed from 1931-1935. Dick Huemer left in 1933 but the series remained fairly strong up to 1935. Some excellent Scrappy cartoons released that year included: 'The Gloom Chasers', 'Scrappy's Ghost Story', 'The Puppet Murder Case' and 'Let's Ring Doorbells'.

Love that vinyl Pluto!

I don't have the cover. Just the individual pages - sounds cool though. Lemme know if you find it!
