Wizard Halloween Air Fresheners

A pair of cute, early 80's Halloween air fresheners from Wizard, each containing a bottom label warning for adults to inform children that though this wacky witch and scrumptious skeleton might look tasty, they are most certainly just sculpted hunks of fragrant wax and are absolutely NOT TO BE EATEN! Yes, nearly 4 decades old and they are still very much potent with a strong festive scent-- plus the skeleton still glows in the dark too!

Who? Boo!

This is the last of the Halloween related material that I'll be posting from the October 1969 issue of Jack and Jill Magazine-- a couple of spooky cute stories with great artwork, plus a fun OO game! Hope everyone is enjoying the AEET Halloween thrills 'n chills so far this month-- lots more creepy crawlies on the way too, so stay tombed...

Pumpkin Planet

We've been looking at Halloween highlights from the spooktacular October 1969 issue of Jack and Jill magazine all this month so far, and now it's time to pose the question: What would our favorite holiday be without pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns, and all things gloriously orange? Well, not ALL things (insert political rant here) --but here are a few appropriately themed bits o'fun, (highlighted by super cute artwork as usual) to get you excited about picking up that razor sharp blade and carving, hacking, slashing, and stabbing a frightening face into that wacky, weird ass fruit. (FYI: Grows on a vine, has seeds = fruit)

For a Night in October

I promised you all some jolting terror from the October 1969 issue of Jack and Jill Magazine (see previous post) and here we go with even more grisly games and petrifying puppets and all sorts of satanic projects and poems to make you scream with unholy Hellfire! Will there be more unrelenting madness in our next post too, you ponder? Of course!

Eerie Evening Party

We always try our hardest to get everyone into the Halloween spirit around here, and usually we start way earlier than this, but this year-- well-- this year has been a bitch. But that doesn't mean we can't finally, and officially, get this All Hallow's party started! And let's make it an Eerie Evening Party too, with a little help from our double J friends who always seem to know how to make the best decorations and masks, and which games are the most fun to play! And we're going to need some tasty treats for you tricksters as well! (Jack and Jill, Oct. 1969.)

Three Stooges Three Dimensional Stickers

Not sure what lame brain calls puffy stickers "Three Dimensional" (ahem! Norman Maurer, ahem!) but it's definitely depicting The Three Stooges here-- I think! Hilariously off-model renditions of everyone's favorite ultra violent silver screen knuckleheads, caricatured in a variety of wacky ways, one that definitely borrows from the 1965 Cambria Studios animated series version, and the others, well, I'm not exactly sure about, though the stickers are dated 1980 which was just 2 years after The Robonic Stooges, so who knows. And what's the story on that fish, anybody know? All I can say is that every time I look at the astoundingly barrel bottom Larry and Curly on the yellow header card below-- I wanna poke my own eyes out! Nyuk nyuk nyuk!
