Get A-Head in Life!

February 1976

Claw The Unconquered #5

There’s an episode of The Simpsons where (and excuse me if I get any details wrong, but it’s been years since I’ve seen this episode) the kids are bored, so Marge goes to the closet and digs out an old gift from Patty & Selma: a Vincent Price egg decorating kit.

Now, I’d always just attributed this to the random bizarreness of The Simpsons… until I saw this!

Apparently Vincent Price-themed food craft kits were actually a thing back in the ’70s! I can’t say for sure if that Simpsons bit was inspired by this, but I think it would be quite a coincidence if that’s not the case.

And on an odd note, look at the date on this – it’s from February! I know that comic publishing dates aren’t always accurate, but they’re usually early, if anything, meaning this was most likely published in December, so this was nowhere near Halloween!

And speaking of Halloween, have a happy one, everybody!
