Originally released in 1968 by Hasbro, the line of “Kooky Spookys”, little (3″) glow in the dark finger puppet ghosts, was apparently re-released in Japan by Takara, re-titled “Glowing Phantom Spookies”. Who knew?
Here I have an example of the head of the household, Daddy Booregard (known in Japan as “Spooky Papa”, but clearly the ghost of Flava Flav) in a rare Japanese box.
40 years on and glowing strong!*
Since my assumption is that most on this site won’t care too much about owning these, if you happen to see them (Japanese OR US versions), let me know. ;)
*Best if sung to the tune of GBH’s “Race Against Time”.
