When I was a kid, you did not rate your teacher on how well they taught. You wanted them to be permissive and have a great set of stickers. I was lucky enough to go through most of my grammar school years with some amazing educators who carried a vast array of stickers with them to school every day. From famous cartoons o scratch and sniff, they had it all. The best teachers would even have holiday themed stickers to pull out when the autumn and winter months crept up. These stickers were so great they would make you WANT to do good on a test. Hey wait a minute!! The Peanut Halloween stickers are some of my favorites from above were some of my favorite.
I especially loved getting a sticker with Snoopy on it since at the time I was a Snoopy collector. Peanuts Halloween Sticker Snoopy was just about the best thing I could get on my tests. They were probably more of a treat because I rarely earned one.
October has begun, and that means Halloween, and that means It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. I found this guy while searching Ebay for Great Pumpkin merch, and while he isn’t strictly from the Great Pumpkin, he’s close enough that I not only had to have him but had to share him with you as we start our retro Halloween fun.
I jumped up from my seat this morning when our friends over at Dark Hall Mansion sent me this Press Release about one of the greatest giant robots in TV history, Gigantor! You might remember that Dark Hall Mansion was responsible for selling that fantastic “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” Poster By Tom Whalen last October.
From the Press Release: “Dark Hall Mansion, www.DarkHallMansion.com, is thrilled to release its officially licensed print for the coolest of cool, the legend that started it all…GiiiiiiiIIIIIIIIGANTOR!
Or by classic Japanese moniker: Tetsujin 28-go
Artist Laurent Durieux has rendered two extraordinary and completely different prints for a very tight Edition release next week:
Standard: Gigantor: The Lab (Edition of 150)
Variant: Gigantor: Tokyo Night (Edition 75)
All Editions are 18″ x 24″ screen prints, and printed by the good folks at D&L Screenprinting.
And YES there will be metal!! How could there not be with Gigantor?!! But only 10 exclusive T-28 Metal Editions showing each respective artwork available: 10 Gigantor: The Lab + 10 Gigantor: Tokyo Night
Standard Editions $65, Variant $100, T-28 Metals $250
All Editions on sale next Thurs, March 22nd at 9:30 AM PST at Dark Hall Mansion: www.DarkHallMansion.Com“
Now considering how fast that Great Pumpkin poster sold out you better get ready to hit that site and start bidding! To see more of Laurent Durieux’s gorgeous artwork make sure to take the time and visit his Flickr Photostream, after looking through some of his portfolio I really hope he gets a chance to try his hand at illustrating Dave Steven’s The Rocketeer someday!
I get warm and fuzzy whenever I hear this.
I am really surprised by how few Great Pumpkin cakes their are out there, but after a bit of searching I found a well themed cake that will make a great addition to any Halloween party. The cake was made by Giggy’s Cakes and Sweets and it looks frighteningly delicious!
