Figures Steve. So cool. I had a couple I think although the Hong Kong Phooey is the one I remember. (Might have had the Fonz too as I had a big Fonz stage which should make sense given how cool I am.)

i may have had three different peanuts ones but only the first was metal. but i was cool too, joe cool. seems like the pop culture ones came into being in the mid 60s. figure someone was gonna say they just had the standard blue collar lunch box.

I had two lunch boxes, neither of which I liked much. I think my Mother picked both. In first grade it was Daniel Boone, from the TV show, which I watched a bit, but generally found boring; too much talking and romance, not enough shooting and action to entertain a 6 year old. Mom probably thought it appealed to my interest in things historical, and was preferable to current pop-culture stuff. The next year I lobbied for a Jesse James lunch box. Google seems to verify that although there was a TV show, no lunch box was produced. Mom got me a Bonanza model, which I guess was the closest she could find, being western-themed. It was of no interest to me. I do recall scraping off Hoss’s face with a dime, down to the shiny metal. By the 3rd grade I gave up on lunch boxes. Other than the thermos there was not much advantage over a paper bag, but you could get milk at school, and then you didn’t have to carry the empty box around afterward.
