F&F and Huck & Yogi
The F&F Company in Dayton, Ohio produced many of the 1950's, 1960's & 1970's signature premium plastic premiums. In about 1960, they produced the Yogi Bear mug and Huck Hound bowl. This is still a pretty common premium so you can only imagine how many were produced. To follow up on this success, F&F produced concept artwork for a set of Huck & Yogi salt and pepper shakers and a Running Yogi bike toy. Neither was produced but interesting to think about all of the premiums that might have been considered and then decided against.
