Pinbacks

Howdy Doody and Clarabell pinbacks

“Hey kids, what time is it? It’s Howdy Doody time!” And so began a delightful half hour for millions of American children as we gathered around our
black-and-white TVs Monday-Friday to watch the antics of Howdy, Buffalo Bob, Clarabell the clown, Chief Thunderthud, Princess Summerfall Winterspring, Phineas T. Bluster (the mayor of Doodyville), and Flub-A-Dub. And don’t forget the Peanut Gallery – about 30 lucky kids got to sit on bleachers in the studio and have live interaction with Buffalo Bob, dressed in his signature cowboy suit with lots of fringe. And did you know that Howdy had 48 freckles on his face – one for each of the 48 states? Remember, this TV show began in 1947, well before Alaska and Hawaii became states. Clarabell, played by Bob Keeshon (who later became Captain Kangaroo), always honked his horn to communicate and never talked until the very last minute of the very last show in 1960 when he looked sadly into the camera and said “Good bye, kids.” Our Howdy pinback is 3-1/2" in diameter and our Clarabell pinback is 1-3/4" in diameter. Both are in perfect condition. Price includes shipping to anywhere in the U.S. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Set of 3 Marilyn Monroe pinbacks

This is a set of three Marilyn Monroe pinbacks. One of the two 1-3/4" diameter pinbacks shows the legendary actress and 50's sex symbol in bed hugging a pillow and the other shows her with a very sultry expression on her face. The 1-3/8" diameter pinback shows her with a big smile on her face. All three pinbacks are in perfect condition. Price includes shipping to anywhere in the U.S. (Click on picture for more images.)

Elvis for President pinback

This 3" diameter Elvis for President pinback features a very young Elvis as the American eagle wearing a crown and holding a guitar and a microphone in his talons. Two banners say “E. Pluribus Elvis.” Pinback’s side says “Crown Publishers, Inc.” Crown Publishers is a division of Random House, and these pins were evidently a promotional button at a bookseller’s convention.

Yogi Bear Marineland 25th Birthday pinback

This 3-3/8" pinback from 1979 shows Yogi Bear jumping out of a birthday cake, above which is “Hanna-Barbera’s Marineland” and below which is “Happy 25th Birthday.” Marineland of the Pacific operated from 1954-87, and Hanna-Barbera took over operation of the park in 1979. Yogi Bear is the beloved cartoon bear created by Hanna-Barbera in 1958 as a supporting character in the popular Huckleberry Hound TV cartoon show. However, Yogi’s popularity soon outstripped that of Huckleberry Hound and he was given his own TV show in 1961, where he often assured his pal Boo Boo, “I’m smarter than the average bear!” Our pinback is in perfect condition.

Trio of Betty Boop pinbacks

This is a set of three pinbacks featuring Betty Boop, the delightfully ditsy cartoon character first introduced to moviegoers in 1930. Her cartoons were shown in theaters throughout the 1930's and she also had a comic strip from 1934-37. Our 1-3/8" diameter pinback shows Betty and her puppy Pudgy. Side says “1979 King Features Syndicate, Inc., Lisa Frank, Inc., Tucson, Arizona 85719.” The pink 1-1/4" pinback shows Betty by herself with her name above, and the companion blue 1-1/4" diameter pinback also shows her by herself and says “Betty Boop for President.” Tiny writing on the sides of both says “1992 KES Inc. / Fleischer Studios, Inc. EPHEMERA.” All three pinbacks are in perfect condition. Price includes shipping to anywhere in the U.S. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Set of 4 Snoopy pinbacks

This is a set of four pinbacks featuring Snoopy, the beloved Charles Schulz cartoon beagle. Large 2-1/8" square pinback from 1958 shows Snoopy in his sunglasses. Printing on back says “The Snoopy Collection by J.G. Hook, Snoopy, © 1958 USF, Inc.” Orange 1-3/4" diameter pinback from 1968 shows Snoopy hitting a golf ball with Charlie Brown in the background saying “Good Grief.” Carries the Schulz signature. Printing around the edge says “Peanuts characters by Charles M. Schultz © 1968 United Feature Syndicate.” (Notice the misspelling of Mr. Schulz’s name.) “I’m on the moon!” 1-3/4" diameter pinback from 1969 shows Snoopy in his spacesuit standing on the surface of the moon. Printing around the edge says “Peanuts characters from the Peanuts Collection by Charles M. Schultz © 1969 by United Feature Syndicates, Inc., Simon Simple Orig., Orange, NJ.” (Obviously they didn’t know how to spell Mr. Schulz’s name either!) BTW, the Apollo 10 mission chose to nickname their command and lunar modules Charlie Brown and Snoopy, respectively. The flight of Apollo 10 in May 1969 was the “dress rehearsal” for the lunar landing on July 20, 1969. The third 1-3/4" diameter pinback shows Snoopy on his doghouse dressed in his WWI Flying Ace Costume and says “Curse you, Red Baron!” beneath. No printing or copyright date. All four pinbacks are in perfect condition. Price includes shipping to anywhere in the U.S. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

The Monkees pocket mirror and pinback

The back of this 3-1/8" x 2-1/8" pocket mirror pictures all four of The Monkees: Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, and Davy Jones, supposedly America’s answer to The Beatles. Mirror edge says “© 1966 Don Kirshner Productions.” For those of you too young to remember, “The Monkees” was a TV show from 1966 to 1968 chronicling the adventures of a fictional rock band. But unbeknownst to its audience, the four stars didn’t really play or sing their songs for the entire first season! They only pantomimed and lip-synced. Both the songs and the real musicians were provided by Don Kirshner, a New York music publisher and talent manager. The Monkees didn’t stay fictional for long, however, and had a number of Top 40 hits in the 60's and 70's including “Last Train to Clarksville” and “I’m a Believer.” Companion 1-1/4" diameter Monkees pinback pictures their “The Best of The Monkees” album cover. Both the mirror and the pinback are in perfect condition. Price includes shipping to anywhere in the U.S. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Exterminate These 3 Rats pinback

This is a 1-1/4" diameter pinback that first appeared as a propaganda button in 1941 during World War II. It depicts the faces of Hitler, Mussi (Mussolini), and Togo above a large rat with the message above: “Exterminate These 3 Rats.” I found an ad in a 1944 Johnson Smith & Co. Novelty Catalog that says “3 Rats Button – Razz the Axis. Wear this flashy lapel button and show ’em how you hate ’em. Be patriotic – show your patriotism.” Tiny lettering around the edge of our pinback reads “N.B.C. Inc., Cleveland, 1941.” Perfect condition.

Reddy Kilowatt Safety Club pinback

This is a 1-3/4" diameter Reddy Kilowatt Safety Club pinback. Created in 1926 by Ashton B. Collins, Sr., of the Alabama Power Company, Reddy Kilowatt became the mascot of over 200 electrical companies in the U.S. seeking to sell this new form of energy. With lightning bolts for a torso and appendages, a strobelight for a head, a light bulb for a nose, and wall sockets for ears, Reddy represented all things electrical and was the first ever “spokestoon” character. He was very busy over the next several decades, not only warming the hearts of adult consumers, but starring in his own comic book, The Mighty Atom, and movies that made their way into schools across the country via Reddy Kilowatt Safety Clubs that instructed kids about fire and electrical safety. Seldom seen today, Reddy Kilowatt appeared in a variety of publicity material until the OPEC oil embargo of the 1970's and the environmental movement replaced energy production with energy conservation as a national goal. Our pinback shows a full-figure Reddy Kilowatt with his right arm and hand lifted in a “stop” position with “Reddy Kilowatt” above and “Safety Club” below. Perfect condition and a great piece of American history. Price includes shipping to anywhere in the U.S. Be sure to see our Mighty Atom pinback listed immediately below.

Reddy Kilowatt “The Mighty Atom” pinback

This is a 7/8" diameter Reddy Kilowatt pinback that shows a smiling Reddy with “Reddy Kilowatt” above and “The Mighty Atom” below. The Mighty Atom was the name of the Reddy Kilowatt comic books of the 1940's, and these pins were often given out to school children touring nuclear energy plants during the 1960's. Perfect condition. Price includes shipping to anywhere in the U.S. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Trio of movie pinbacks

This is a collection of three movie pinbacks. The 2" x 3" Jim Carey Liar Liar pinback was a 1997 promotional item for the movie of the same name about a lawyer who can’t tell a lie for 24 hours. Memorable quote: “Greta, please! I'm on my knees in a $900 suit.” The 2-3/4" x 1-3/4" Star Trek V The Final Frontier pinback is from 1988 when the movie was released. It featured most of the cast from the original TV series (William Shatner as Captain Kirk, Leonard Nemoy as Spock, DeForrest Kelly as “Bones,” James Doohan as Scottie, Nichelle Nichols as Uhura, and George Takei as Sulu) and was also written and directed by Shatner. Memorable quote: “I thought weapons were forbidden on this planet. Besides, I can’t believe you’d kill me for a field of empty holes.” The 1-1/2" diameter Ghostbusters pinback is also from 1988, but the movie was released in 1984 starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Sigourney Weaver. Memorable quote: “I feel like the floor of a taxi cab.” All three pinbacks are in perfect condition. Price includes shipping to anywhere in the U.S. (Click on picture for more images.)

Trio of pop culture pinbacks

This is a collection of three pop culture pinbacks. The 2-1/8" square Rod Stewart pinback pictures the legendary rock star with his name at right. Back says “© 1991 Rod Stewart.” Born in England in 1945, Rod Stewart hit it big in the U.S. in the late 1960's. Who can forget his distinctive raspy singing voice or his monster 1971 hit “Maggie May,” followed by “You Wear It Well” in 1972? Rod Stewart still packs ’em in today on his concert tours. Great condition with a couple of tiny scuffs. The 1-3/4" diameter Beverly Hills 90310 pinback is from 1991 and features the entire cast of the popular TV show. Perfect condition. The 1" diameter pinback features Curly Howard of Three Stooges fame. Perfect condition. Price includes shipping to anywhere in the U.S. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
