The entire back cover of every one of these programs was devoted to an elixir called "Bovril". The same character was always used but in different situations.

Buckles - Since you were on the show at that time, what is your take on how much Mattel invested in the show? I remember the show before Mattel and after, and although I agree with John that the show was always self-sustaining, it did appear to have been blessed after the purchase. Irvin had brought in the best designers and craftsmen, but it appeared that they had MORE spangles to work with after Barbie and the Hot Wheels started showing up at the garbage stands. ~frank

I lifted this out of my 1933 July-August White Tops.

What a procession this must have been. Imagine the sound all that metal must have made. Quite an attention getter.

This is a tiny photo that I have passed over for years. On enlargement I see that someone had identified both elephants.

Here are some snap shots of our days with Tommy and Struppi in the 1980's.

The kiddies get the thrill of a lifetime by being afforded the opportunity to ride the big circus elephant.
