Gee, I wish I had a "friction convertible," like Quick Draw.

Cool, I love old cars.

Huck is in a Ford Falcon, Quick Draw is in an unsafe-at-any-speed Corvair.

I like the lesson in not watching the road they teach children.

"Hey kids! Watch your favorite characters crash while checkin' out the back seat!"

HemlockMan said...

Whoa. I'll bet those are hard to find.

I was hoping for more of those funny off-model toys [I love those]. Ah well. Thanks for posting more Hannah Barbera toys, Mr. Kricfalusi.

So did Quick Draw McGraw get killed in his Chevy Corvair when it flipped over on wet pavement, like Ernie Kovacs did?

Ralph Nader never mentioned it in his book... this demands an exposé!

What was the security guard trying to stop you from doing?

J C Roberts said...

Wait, weren't the flat characters in the back seat meant to be the "passengers" in those toys?

Awfully charitable of ol' Huck to give HIMSELF a ride!

Cool. The cars are more accurate than the characters. It's interesting that both cars were competitive "economy" models introduced in 1960. The Huck Hound Falcon must've come out before Ford signed on with J.C. Melendez's agency for the Peanuts characters commercials.
