Complete 1963 Kenner Give A Show Projector & Slides Set W/ 16 Extras Flintstones:
DESCRIPTION:Here is a classic toy, the 1963 Kenner Give-A-Show Projector set, with 16 strips totaling 112 slides. The 16 shows are all Hanna-Barbera cartoons, including The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound and Quick Draw McGraw, among others. These first 5 cartoons also have a second strip in the set. It has a working projector, in fantastic condition, so long as you put in three D-size flashlight batteries and replace the tiny PR3 light bulb (available in most hardware or light bulb stores). Also included with this set are another 16 strips from the 1961 Give-A-Show issue, which also has The Flintstones, Quick Draw McGraw and others. I bought the 1963 boxed set as an adult to display, but often played the shows for my young daughters. I myself had at least one as a kid in the 1960s.
CONDITION: The projector itself looks great, with no problems I can see. The 35mm strips in the 1963 set are in pretty good shape, too, with little wear or much warp to them. The latter is the issue for most old strips, as evidenced by the 1961 set where every one has a wavy warp to it. I bought them separate from the 1963 set. I am not sure if I even tried to project them onto the wall. I would say they are in less than Good condition.
The 1963 box has several problems on the edges, but it does hold together thanks to strong, clear tape I applied after I bought it. A previous owner had used masking tape to repair the left side of the lid. There is also evidence of some very old water stains on the lid edges and inside on the yellow strip holder. But I don't see that same damage on the strips. Overall, I would say this set is in Very Good condition, with the extra strips being in Good-minus condition.
This item comes from a large toy and sports memorabilia collection, which I am now selling. More will be listed soon.
