In this corner... The Whitman Kid!

Advertising character booster Waffle Whiffer's running a little "Color Your Own Whitman Kid" dealy over at his Flickr right now. Check it out for a groovy gander at some varied takes on this advertising icon of the the late 60s, 70s and 80s. I, for one, remember his smiling, letter-bedecked visage adorning a multitude of my 1970s birthday presents - from books and puzzles to comics and card games. Above is my quick go at GlenMullalifying WK from my Flickr.
For more info on the Kid be sure to stop by Waffle Whiffer's blog. For more wonderful Whitman memories why not check out the Witty Whitman Flickr group.
