Vintage Ad #103 - Darling Pet Monkeys Remove Unwanted Hair Forever

    Newer Older

    The monkey hasn't aged much, nor was he worth any more nearly two years after his appearance in Strange Tales. A hairy creature seems at odds with the beauty products on the rest of the page.

      I think my father actually ordered one of those monkeys out of the back of a comic book when he was a kid. I used to read his old comic books when I was a kid and see the ads.

      Small pet monkey ads were seen often in comic books and pulp magazines back then.

      Did this get posted somewhere? (Sudden jump to 2,000 views has me curious...not that I'm complaining...)

      Thanks - I'll add that link when I throw this ad onto my main site (where the curious can find the same monkey ad under different circumstances - a comic book from '67)

      Can you order both products and wind up with a darling hairless monkey?

      I'm sure some enterprising youngster tried it.
