On this Saturday morning we are having fun looking at oversized Vintage Kellogg’s Summer Camp Postcards which includes Yogi Bear!
The image shown upper left is around 1963, and features Yogi Bear in a camp scene. “Yogi is bringing home a collection of wildlife, including a skunk A similar skunk appears on a couple of the other postcards.”
Recalling Saturday morning cartoons with Yogi Bear and Huckleberry Hound finds me smiling fondly. I’m already hearing the sound effects that went along with their cartoon voices without even playing the DVD player yet.
At the POSTCARDY website there is a series of Postcard Collecting Articles. One of them is on Kellogg’s Summer Camp Postcards and includes a great collection of vintage finds.
There were three post card sizes mentioned Oversize 6″ X 9″, Standard size, and Continental size.
Kellogg’s summer camp postcard – “is an oversized (6″ X 9″) card and has always been one of my favorites. It has a cartoon of Yogi Bear fishing from a tree for a box of Kellogg’s cereal at a Camp Site. There is also a checklist on the front. Yogi Bear was a star of a TV show cartoon sponsored by Kellogg’s cereals, and he also appeared on Kellogg’s cereal boxes.”
The article goes on to give the number on the back of the card.
If you have been looking for something unique to collect this could be the category for you. Today’s blog topic has me wanting to get to the grocery store today to go walk down the cereal aisle!
