Halloween Countdown: Munsters Squeak Toys

Posted in halloween, monsters, toys, TV, vintage with tags , , , , on October 19, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

In 1965, Spanish company Laya produced a line of Munsters squeak toys.

Does anyone know why Bugs Bunny is involved in this? I couldn’t find much info about the company.

Interesting color choices for the toys. Though I remember also being surprised when I first saw a color photo of the Munsters (I’m not sure what I expected…real life grayscale?).
