1960s Wacky Races Yankee Doodle PigeonFrom the 1960s comes this awesomely preserved cereal box toy! It’s a Wacky Racers Yankee Doodle Pigeon Eraser – it was FREE in specially marked boxes. Etched on the back with Hanna Barbera PROD INC 1969, this very rare Wacky Races cereal toy comes in cool blue.

Contrary to popular belief, Yankee Doodle Pigeon was from the Wacky Races spinoff, “Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines”, not directly from the Wacky Races cartoon. This cool show (Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines) focuses on the efforts of Dick Dastardly and his canine sidekick Muttley to catch Yankee Doodle Pigeon, a carrier pigeon who carries secret messages. The name of the show’s theme song is “Stop the Pigeon”.

This Yankee Doodle Pigeon eraser is in fantastic condition, and nicely priced. It’s a rare gem of a cereal toy, and a piece of cartoon history.

They don’t make cereal toys like this any more. Don’t miss this one. At this price, in this condition we don’t expect it to last long.

Live the good times now. Get the feeling again!

Trivia:

“Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines” is widely known as “Catch The Pigeon” or “Stop the Pigeon” based on the show’s original working title and the show’s theme song, written by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, which repeats that phrase so often that it is frequently mistaken as the show’s actual title. ~wikipedia~
