Safeguard Soap "Hanna-Barbera" Series (1971)



Safeguard Soap "Hanna-Barbera" Series (1971)

As far as I know there were only two mugs in this series:  Muddlemore & Boo from "The Funky Phantom", and "Josie & the Pussycats".  Both plastic mugs were 4.25" tall.  "The Funky Phantom" mug was yellow; "Josie & the Pussycats" was blue.

From what I've learned, I do believe Safeguard Soap was the ONLY Procter & Gamble product that offered these mugs.  At that time, both of these cartoon series were fledgling.  "Josie & the Pussycats", of course, met with greater fame.  "The Funky Phantom" lasted only one season and was little more than a ripoff of "Scooby-Doo", another Hanna-Barbera property.  Funky Phantom merchandise is limited.  The biggest thing Funky Phantom ever did was a 13-issue comic book series from Gold Key.

This style of plastic mug had been used for Procter & Gamble promotions for a number of years before and after this promotion.  For example, six such mugs of characters from the "Pogo" comic strip were released in 1969.
