Toonerville Redux

Speaking of amazing toys, Al sent me some Toonerville scans. This one is from Lyle Cain, Sr..

You all know how I feel about the Toonerville (there's no such thing as too many Toonerviles!). There are several standard gauge flavors of it.

Al said this flyer was postmarked October of 1987. I wonder what the total production run was of Toonerville's? I have an interview with Dick coming up (he's already given me some great material on how he got started).

I'll ask Dick about the story of the Toonerville's as well as variations (which should be kind of interesting). There were variations of the McKeen as well as some of the other items Dick made.
