Flippo Comic and Personality Lights
Four rare lights - Dennis the Menace, The Mickey Mouse Club, Beany & Cecil and Superman. Superman is dated 1966. Mickey Mouse Club is the oldest of this group and probably dates from about 1960. The others are from the early 1960s.
Most Flippo lights were made by the Bantam Lite Company.
Bantam made lights to commemorate all sorts of things. The 1950s
and 1960s television shows were especially popular. Flippos used
a single "AAA" cell.
There is really not much to say about these lights except that they are fun to collect. Some charactors are very hard to find such as Mr. Peanut, Herman Munster, and many that I am not even aware of. What can you find? These are inexpensive plastic flashlights with printed paper designs.
Jr. Fire chief, Junior Astronaut, Santa Clause and Rocket Ray. The white plastic parts glowed in the dark
Three nice display cards full of Flippo Flashlights.
Three individual Flippo lights on their original advertising cards. Dick Tracy and Superman are rare lights.
Three more Disney characters on their original cards.
Davy Crockett and Zorro - Two Disney telvision shows from the late 1950s to early 1960s. A late 1960s Mickey Mouse and a very rare ca.1958 Robert The Robot.
Many of these lights had a bell or whistle
or tiny gun attached to the keychain to add to the experience.
