I don’t collect Bugs Bunny merchandise as an adult, I honestly feel watching Looney Tunes as a kid was time well spent. The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner show was an oasis every Sunday away from “Hee Haw” and freaking “Lawrence Welk” (which I now adore). With national recognition, it’s no surprise that Bugs enjoyed “Krusty the Clown” merchandising levels.
It could be argued that Bugs is a good role model as he eats his vegetables, but I digress. When pouring through a 70s Sears catalogue, I saw this page and immediately recognized that Toothpaste dispenser. I’m pretty positive that we had that in our bathroom as a kid, and it made a huge mess, so it eventually got removed. I haven’t thought of it in years.
This Bugs Bunny Playset was only available at Spiegel. I wish I had this as a kid. I mean, look at it! It’s amazing.
Janex made a lot of cool Bugs Bunny merch, even teaming him up with Elmer Fudd for a clock!
I am jealous of anyone who saw Bugs Bunny in Space.
