1975 Azrak Hamway International Catalog
Ben Cooper was the leading manufacturer of Halloween costumes and Novelties in the United States during the 1970s.
This extensive 1976 catalog really demonstrates the power house licenses they had from the Universal Monsters and Mickey Mouse, the Superheroes of both Marvel and DC to TV sensations like the Six Million Dollar Man and the Sleestaks, Ben Cooper had almost a stranglehold on what kids liked .
Some powerful brands today on that cover.
Evel Knievel on the Planet of the Apes, he jumped the Forbidden Zone!
Wizard of Oz was going through a licensing boom in the mid 70s, spiked by Mego releasing a toy line

The all too familiar masks worn by Shazam and Superman.

That Fred Flinstone mask terrifies me...
TheBen Cooper Universal Monster boxes are just gorgeous.

I miss the days when you'd see Frankenstein on Halloween..
"Shark" because rival Collegeville had Jaws....
That Apes make up is something I don't think I've ever seen in the wild..
