1976 DER WIENERSCHNITZEL HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST


Wow, this little witch just won a teddy bear for wearing the best costume at the Hiland Theatre in Albuquerque. According to this clipping from Boxoffice magazine the costume contest was a tie-in with Der Wienerschnitzel hot dog chain. In the caption that you can read for yourself (click on image) kid's were given hot dog coupons, puppets, and trick or treat bags.

The puppet was probably this puppet. (Image supplied by Dan Goodsell)


The bag was made by the classic Halloween costume company Ben Cooper.
