Bonus Sunday

Welcome to Bonus Sunday. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and had plenty of good food, I sure did!

From Friday's post, here is the complete Winter-Spring 1968 edition of Vacationland.

Vacationland Winter-Spring 1968 - 96mb

To be honest, I just noticed this photo was backwards when I scanned it the other night, but I've had this issue for a while and have read it several times!

A nice two page Tiki Room article.

Super color photos in the centerfold.

While not as exciting as a sack of sugar on a drinking fountain, I do like this ad for Dolly Madison Cakes, they're "toothsome". The purple ink they used is so thick it actually coats/laminates the paper!

I'm not sure I ever knew that the "barker bird" was named Juan...

Mmm, that Dolly Madison ad is making me hungry! Does that company still exist? Thanks for the great Vacationland!

Back from a great Thanksgiving time with the family. Folks I haven't seen in 20 years. I am going to spend the day catching up with all the cool stuff you have posted. Appreciated as always, Richard.

This was a lot of fun to see. Just loving the retro stuff. Thanks!

@Major: Yeah, the name "Juan" for the barker bird shows up a few times in publicity material.

Can you believe we're discussing the name of a robot parrot that's been gone for almost 40 years?

It's almost as bad discussing Boba Fett's middle name.

Boba Fett had a middle name?

Katella Gate said...

Tokyo: Yes, Boba Fett had a middle name. Robert Algernon Fett.

Obviously, "Algernon" is a real image killer for a bounty hunter, so he took he ran the letters BOB A FETT together for a cool sounding name on his license to kill.
