Adventures of Sam Sawyer-View Master

Sam-Saucer-1

"Sam's radar-telescope tracks a flying saucer."

••••••••
This is another one from my Uncle Ed's View Master collection.

This is entitled "Sam and the Flying Saucer Pirates".

I can not find out much about these except that the View-Master Company, Sawyer's, invented their own character to increase the sale of their reels. Thus the Adventures of Sam Sawyer were born.

This is from 1951.


Here is the booklet that came with it.

I wonder if Sam is any relation to Tom...Sawyer.

This likes a cool set. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest.

"looks like"

Doh!!

Hey, one more thing...

why doesn't the back of the package mention anything about these turning to dust if stored improperly?

You'd think they would want to warn people about that.

Your still bitter about that?
