    Description

    B. O. Plenty Windup Toy with Box (Marx, 1947). Here is B.O. Plenty who has just arrived to present his Baby Sparkle with a gift. B.O., the husband of Gravel Gertie, was created by Dick Tracy's daddy, Chester Gould. The new baby created quite a sensation back in 1947, when Marx made this B.O. Plenty wind-up walking toy. This toy stands about 8.5" tall and is in Very Good and working condition. Wind the key in back and B.O. will teeter along, his hat bouncing along as he goes. This lithographed tin has a few spots of wear, but is good overall condition, with nice detail and color. The back has the Marx logo, plus the following: "By permission of Famous Artist Syndicate Copyright by Chicago Tribune". The original box is included, and it is in Excellent condition with all flaps present. B.O. Plenty and Sparkle were beloved comic characters of their day, and this classic Marx wind-up brings that era to life. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
