Charlie Brown’s Summer Fun View-Master Reels (1972)

I’ve found of late that if I’ve had a rather hard day at work or perhaps I’m feeling just a little down that all I really need to do is head into the living room, turn on the overhead light, lay on my back and pull out my container of View-Master reels. I am still just as captivated by the 3-D images contained on those little white reels today as when I was a kid.

I am fortunate enough to still own my original View-Master and many of the reels that I had in my youth. That doesn’t mean I don’t try to collect the one’s I never had when I was younger of course but to honest every time I turn around I’m floored by a set of reels that I never knew existed. Like with this 1972 Charlie Brown’s Summer fun set that has been scanned by Lance Cardinal, these in particular have something I do not recall seeing in other reels, dialogue on the the images themselves. From what I can tell it seems that Charlie Brown, Schroeder, and Lucy are having to contend with Snoopy continuously interrupting their game of croquet.

Now you are going to want to hop on over to Lance Cardinal’s blog to check out more of the View-Master fun from the Peanuts gang, but you also need to his hand built Muppet Theater playset. It is certainly one of the most awesome fan created things I’ve had the pleasure of seeing.

“Snoopy And The Red Baron” Talking View-Master Reels

I have a few pieces of Peanuts memorabilia hanging around my office and I constantly flirt with the idea of collecting more. It seems like their is a vast array of items to collect and a lot of them are affordable. Plus I had a lot of Peanuts stuff when I was a kid, so their would be some history. It is all waaaaay to tempting to me. For the last few days I have been staring at these “Snoopy And The Red Baron” Talking View-Master Reels, which my cousin had when we were young and I always enjoyed playing with. Of course if I buy it, I would need to get a Talking View-Master.

This “Snoopy And The Red Baron” set is still in its original shrink wrap and is in great shape. ©1969 United Feature Syndicate. Great 3D images of Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest. N. Mint.
