Happy SUNday! Violent Cartoon Edition

“Willie Mouse” on a 1960s era movie editor.

Mickey’s delinquent cousin? I can’t remember how many times when I was a kid that I’ve watched this cartoon – there was something fun about running your own cartoon through the family projector.

Super cool 8mm film editor – we love the 1960s style of this thing! It was made in Japan by Ohnoya Shoten, Ltd.

Back to the movie. “Baby Faced Battler” by Castle Films, produced by United World Films. The character first appeared in 1938. Crazy violent!

Sad SUNday! Remembering the kitties we lost this year

Sukoshi – The Soft One – 2003 to 2017

As much as Carol and I have enjoyed our different kitties over the 45 years of our marriage, with the loss of these three we have moved on from pet ownership. It’s painful to think about it but as we age it’s best for the cats and us.

A couple of the advertising boys from Yashica

Could this be the camera that our Sailor Boy is holding? Yashica’s Auto Focus Motor 35 from 1981.

Since Yashica has never officially named their advertising doll, I’ve always referred to him as ‘Sailor Boy’ for obvious (to me) reasons. Sailor hat and blue sailor pants. The other boy – well that’s still up for discussion. I originally thought of him as being a party boy and then a Christmas elf and now back to party guy and now… Yashica’s take on the nursery rhyme, “Wee Willie Winkie”. Floppy hat with the little ball or tassels on the end, and pointy slippers. It appears that Yashica used him to “announce” the arrival of their new camera. A stretch but thanks to my friend Paul, a good stretch.

The camera that the boy is holding resembles the Yashica Auto Focus Motor which was released in the early 1980s. The brochure shows the camera on a table with party hats, presents and a cake with candles – a birthday cake?

Party hat? Christmas hat? Sleeping cap? It is missing a green decal on the front of the hat that says Yashica in katakana. The green decal and the white hat with red stars made me think that these were Christmas colors.

The Sailor Boy (far right) with his proper green decal on his cap. Pointy (elf?) shoes and what appears to be a Christmas ball hanging from the cap… or maybe not.

A true Christmas Sailor Boy – he’s a candle and so is his tree.

Could this be Yashica’s inspiration??? Hmmmm

Happy SUNday! A simpler time – 1959

Happy SUNday y’all! Hope it’s going well.

Here’s a neat item from a much simpler time. We love that the prescription is in Carol’s mom’s first name only and that there’s no mention of what the drug was. Can you image? It’s almost 60 years old now – it’s amazing that her mom kept the bottle!
