ZOWIE Z-O-O-M INTO DREAMLAND WITH BATMAN


Zowie is right! This might be the coolest, the bestest and the most fantasticest kid's bedspread ever, ever, ever, ever, ever and double ever to infinity ever! What a deal! For only $13.88, a kid could fall asleep at the wheel of the Batmobile!

If you take a look at the full page scan from this 1966 National Bellas Hess catalog, you’ll see the official Two-Face bedspread in blazing Joker purple located below the Batmobile spread.


Wow, compared to the Two-Face bedspread's $9.99 price, the Batmobile bedspread is kind of expensive at $13.88. Did you know the average salary back in 1966 was only $46.00? Holy Highway Robbery, Batman!

If they had put the Two Face name on that generic bedspread, they probably would have charged more. Great ad!
