Collectibles#13-- Dell Squeeze toys

In 1961, Dell Squeeze Toys were sold 365 days a year. Huckleberry Hound was the most frequently used character but they also used other characters because Dell was using the characters in comics and I guess they ultimately decided to use the characters in toys. They used Disney, Hanna Barbera, and of course Warner Brothers.

Woody Woodpecker song part 4-- Other Countries Ripped OFF the song title

Other countries ripped off this song... clearly. But just the title. This is all a lie. Maybe it is the WW Song there talking about but I doubt it. Maybe Lantz sued... This song was a courtroom favorite (I guess)
