Simple Simon - Burry Day 2

Say hello to Simple Simon. SImon was the character that Burry used in the 1940's to promote their line of baking mixes. He is somewhat creepy and in a 1947 ad shows how he is ready to insinuate himself into a couples new marriage.....

For the kiddies, Burry produced a Mother Goose Party Package. The premium is pretty generic but the always leering Simple Simon gives it a nice edge.

That first panel with Simple Simon welcoming the newlyweds is really creepy. Keep up the good work.

Just found a Party Package my mother kept, unpunched and complete. Any idea what it's worth?
