things that I collect, things that I make and things that I like.
hi dan,i just wanted to thank you & say how much i've enjoyed your site.. i have fried my eyes for several days going through your links and flicker photos.. what a nostalgia trip!i'm a socal native (long beach) so i love all the retro theme park stuff.. japanese deer park & the monsanto 'inner space' ride at disneyland.. and i couldn't believe my eyes when i saw the 'users are losers' anti-drug pamphlett from my local rexall drug store!! i host gumbyland but also collect vintage halloween items, kid's meal prizes, etc.. your site jogged so many memories.. (i think i still have my 'golden book of science for boys & girls' hidden away somewhere..) one thing i thought surely i'd come across in your photos was a package of the old 3 layer lime jello that was recalled back in the late 60's/early 70's? it was my favorite,but was yanked off the shelves.. too good to be true? possibly something unsafe in the space age ingredients? haha.. well, thanks again.. and i love your art, especially the carrot & the candy corn.. found that i had one of your pix (the vampire carrot chasing the egg) saved in my stuffbefore i ever even ran across your site.. to your continued success with mr toast & friends!bren/ghostwww.brensgumbyland
Bren - I am pretty sure that jello was called 1-2-3. I will try to post a picture on FLickrglad you are enjoying my stuffdan
oh my gosh! & it's orange? hehe..in '69 i could only ever get lime..thanks for remembering the name.. i looked around online & there's actually a petition to try & bring this back.. + i found a recipe to simulate the effect that i can try..thanks again!now i'm heading over to purchase one of your vampire candy corn guys..p.s. i lived right across the street from 'kiddieland'.. how cool to see pix..bren
I think Jell-o has had that product on and off the shelves a few times - this version is more of a late 70's one.
