Three Guys in Coonskin Caps-1955


It's hard for those of us who weren't alive at the time to realize just how popular Disney's DAVY CROCKETT really was with kids. Consider, for instance, this 1955 DC house ad advertising not one, not two but THREE guys in coonskin caps! You see, the cap made you cool! Thus Dan'l Boone, Davy himself and the completely fictional TOMAHAWK were all given said topper by over at National! In the pre-dawn hours of the silver age, this was what DC was pushing! Oddly perhaps, TOMAHAWK would last another fifteen years!
