Ran across this while out shopping last weekend:
I’m not sure what’s happening on this packaging on this watch. It appears Woody is late for something, while Woody’s (somewhat oddly-drawn) niece and nephew Splinter and Knothead appear to be doing … something?
I never thought of Woody Woodpecker as being a particularly punctual character, or even needing to be. Regardless, you gotta admit 39 cents is a good price for a watch.
What the what?? A Taxi watch and it was it was made in 1994? I was searching for Taxi information when I stumbled upon this watch being sold by Hake’s:
According to Hake’s:
4x6x1″ deep box contains nicely designed set issued in 1994. From an edition of only 10,000 that were sold exclusively through the TV channel via half-hour infomercial. This is one of four different produced w/others being Get Smart, I Dream Of Jeannie and Bewitched. Watch has 1.25″ dia. metal case and leather straps. Both watch dial and box lid feature same image of driver’s elbow hanging out of taxi cab w/show’s logo at center plus Nick at Nite logo. Reverse has incised edition number “1150.” Inside of box has a diecut cardboard pop-up taxi and set also comes w/metal whistle. Unused and Mint and comes w/warranty paper but requires a new battery to operate. Great design.
Taxi was a great show, but I am not sure how big a Taxi fan you have to be to own a Taxi watch (pretty big?). Definitely a conversation starter.
