Logan's Fun


BOB LOGAN (superstar) has posted on his blog direct scans of old View-Master stereo slides featuring various Hanna-Barbara characters like my personal favorite YOGI BEAR.  Now there is yet another reason to visit him and be amazed.



Just for this, I am going to get him back in my next post.

Hm, couldn't find a link to his blog...BUT those old viewmaster slides are AWESOME. I worked at Fisher Price for a year, where they had entire room of original sculptures used for viewmaster slides. There was Bambi, Jungle Book, and lots of other cool stuff in there. I took pics, should upload them to the blog...

Wow, what a fantastic picture! I remember having a Viewmaster! Hah, I had three, actually, just because I thought I kept losing them. The week after my parents bought me a third one, I found the other two, heehee! My reels were mostly of movies, but I would have loved to have gotten more Disneyland reels. It would have been great to see how 3D imagery was applied to real photos through the Viewmaster back then. You know what else I'd love? To get my hands on a new Viewmaster! They're still being made, and I want one!
