OK, it’s that time again..time to look at those classic ads from the pages of comics books of yore:
I love the line “One of America’s favorite pets.” Wow, talk about balls. I mean, sure, if by “favorite” they mean “most troublesome” and by “pets” they mean “pests.” And then there’s the matter of delivery of your great new “pet.” Send us the address of your nearest airport!? At first I thought it was pretty cruel to box up baby raccoons and air mail them to people all over the country, but then I realized the real reason for wanting to know the location of their customers’ airport.
It’s so they could cash the check and then just send a letter with “go to this airport and hang out by the garbage dumpsters, and your new pet will be waiting for you.”
The above ad is from Adventure into Fear #12, published by Marvel Comics, February 1973.
