I’m back after taking a week off for Father’s Day. Today we conclude the small puzzles copyrighted Harvey Famous Cartoons with a second appearance by Wendy. Why they used Wendy twice, rather than, say, Baby Huey, I have no idea.
I made very good progress yesterday in deciding what I am going to put into my display cabinets at TerrifiCon. The revised plan is to use all four cabinets, and even doing so, I am not going to be able to display as much Harveyana as I had hoped to. It will still be an amazing display, I promise!Continue reading →
I had a Zazzle make a t-shirt for my wife to wear to TerrifiCon. It came out nice, so I have put it up for sale in the Gift Shop. Zazzle is currently running a 15% off sale with code ZMAYCARDSALE, so order now! Is there anything you would like to see made? If so, please use the comment form below, or use the Contact the Curator form.
Keith Manegre sent me scans of the pages of the 1984 Larami catalog that show the rack toys they made featuring Richie Rich, and I have added them to the manufacturer page. Note that the toys were made in 1981, but were still selling several years later. I really must get around to writing my analysis of the Larami rack toy collection, as I did with the JA-RU rack toys. I am still trying to get a 1988 JA-RU catalog, please leave a comment below or use the Contact the Curator form if you have one. My thanks again to Keith for these scans, and his continuing support of the Harvey Mercheum.
Every May 18th is International Museum Day! The theme for 2022 is “The Power of Museums”, exploring the power museums have to bring about positive changes in their communities. As a virtual museum, the Harvey Mercheum’s community is on line. I hope that this website brings about positive changes in my on line community!
Sorry for not posting last weekend, I took advantage of the nice weather to do some yard work. Today, however, is Free Comic Book Day (FCBD), back to the first Saturday in May! This is the closest thing there is to a holiday for comic book fans, and I will be visiting my friendly local comic shop to see what I can get. Enjoy!
