Sorry for not posting last weekend, I have been very busy with work. Today things get a little interesting. We have a “long” sheet of the “Richie in pain” stickers we saw on the first of the long sheets, but with a different hanger. Gone are the part number, copyright date and Harvey Comics as the copyright holder. Also gone are any Harvey images, instead we have what appears to be two cherubs grabbing their stuffed animals and flying away as fast as they can from an amorous circus elephant. A last detail to note is that the lower sticker of Dollar the Dog is missing his dollar signs!
I cannot be sure what happened to explain this variant. Assuming someone did not put a new hanger on an old sheet of stickers, my best guess is that Harvey issued some sort of cease and desist order to the sticker manufacturer after 1980, and this is how the manufacturer used up sticker stock they had already produced.
Today we resume our look at the wide variety of pins or buttons made featuring Harvey Comics characters that we began back in 2016. It is a very exciting day, because this is our first guest contribution from new supporter of the Harvey Mercheum, Matthew Berube. It is also the first exhibit to feature Bunny Ball. Bunny was created to appeal to an older audience than Harvey’s stars Casper or Richie Rich. Bunny had a club, the Bunny Ball “In” Club (BBIC) which you could join by mail. Once joined, you would receive a button and a membership card. Here, thanks to Matthew, is the button:
Continuing our look at the sheets of Richie Rich puffy stickers that we started over three years ago, today we have another “long” sheet. We return to the “Three Dimensional” text on the cardboard hanger, and the part number is 999, which follows from the the 888 (Casper short)/998 (Richie Rich short) part numbers.
Sorry for the lack of new exhibits lately. I have been doing some house cleaning, and made my photo studio inaccessible. I still have my flatbed scanner though, so this is the perfect time to resume our look at the sheets of Richie Rich puffy stickers that we started over three years ago!
Quick post today, the weather outside is way too nice to spend much time on the computer! Today I am featuring a compilation of early Harvey cartoons. My copy is sealed, and is going to remain that way, so the only photos are of the outer sleeve. One interesting thing to note about this DVD set is it is the first item to feature Rags Rabbit, enjoy!
The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) might interfere with trick-or-treating this year, but it is not going to stop me from sharing this adorable Hot Stuff doll! I included the somewhat awkward third photo, showing the bottom where the pieces come together, because the copyright notice is printed there as well as on the hang tag. What a great year 1998 was for Good Stuff and the dolls they made for Harvey Comics! We’ve already seen the similarly constructed Richie Rich Merry Christmas doll, here now is Hot Stuff wishing us Happy Halloween on a pumpkin:
Tony Busan has provided another rare and interesting Casper item to share with all of you, thanks again Tony! Today we have a craft project set for children. It looks similar to the Presto Magix sets I played with as a child. Rubbing the image with a stick or pencil would transfer it to a piece of paper. Here is Hasbro‘s version, Rub-On Magic Picture Transfers Casper Assortment:
