Sugar Babies '79: The Burlesque Musical

Another recent antique mall find was this 20 page program from the 1979 Broadway smash hit, Sugar Babies, starring Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller. It's full of fun black and white photos from the show (gorgeous chorus girl overload!), but nothing beats those colorfully cute, leggy little sugar babies on the cover, illustrated by the great Hilary Knight; an artist probably best known for his wonderful visuals behind the 50's Eloise kid's book series, as well as countless other memorable magazines, album covers, and advertising.

A Pop Hit Card

I recently found A Pop Hit Card from the 50's for $1 at an antique mall. It's a postcard 45 record (look close and you can see the grooves) that plays FEVER by Peggy Lee on one side, just like those cool cereal box singles from the 70's. Fun artwork and funny message from the sender on the back, it was originally mailed to someone in DeSoto, MO in 1959.

Lemmy Num Nums

If Keebler's going to have a fudge stripe cookie called Lemmy Num Nums, then might I suggest a slight redesign of the elf on the package? 
(FYI: Lemmy Num Nums rock)
