Can you guess who these vintage Halloween costumes are supposed to be?

Wait… is that a dog or an alien?

At some point in our trick-or-treating careers, most of us have worn one. You know the costumes. You could find them in grocery or drug stores. They were made of plastic and vinyl. The thin mask, held tight against your face with a stapled rubber band, would cut into your skin. The vinyl smock, instead of resembling clothing, would just have some kind of logo on it explaining who you were supposed to be.

These inexpensive costumes were quick ways to transform into a vampire — or a licensed pop-culture character.

They were largely made by companies such as Ben Cooper and Collegeville. These here all come from old Collegeville catalogs. See if you can match the masks to the correct characters!

  1. Match these two to the correct show!
  2. Match these characters to the correct show.
  3. What kind of creature is this TV character?
  4. What kind of animal is this TV character?
  5. What kind of a creature is this?
  6. This fellow is from which show?
  7. Which show is this character from?
  8. Which cartoon world does this character belong to?
  9. Match this character to a newspaper comic strip!
  10. This costume promotes which cult horror movie?
  11. Who is this blue dude?
  12. What is this bird promoting?
  13. Who is this girl?
  14. Finally, what is the name of Casper the Ghost's horse?

Can you guess who these vintage Halloween costumes are supposed to be?

#2 is wrong. That is "Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm" as teenagers in a 70's spinoff, they never appeared on "The Flintstones" looking like that!
Good Point.
Come to think of it, wasn't there an episode where Fred had a Rip Van Winkle dream and Pebbles was married and leaving so he missed her growing up?

Thirteen out of fourteen. Number 13 had no context so I guessed, but in retrospect the makeup should have been a clue.

10 of 14. I missed Lassie, Barbie, Taz and the Chicken! I sure thought I nailed the Chicken, #12 question. I thought he was Corny the chicken "promoting" Kelloggs' Corn Flakes. Still a fun quiz!!
Foghorn Leghorn did promote KFC for a short time in 80's commercials. I had no idea he "promoted" Looney Tunes in general, it must have been before my time.
I don't recall EITHER

Well, I missed 4 & 13; I'm just not a dawg or Barbie person. :)

Not to be "that guy" but the costumes from question No. 2 are not characters from "The Flintstones." They are from the mid-seventies reboot "The Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Show" in which they were in a band, Bamm-Bamm no longer had super strength, and Fred had become an executive at the Slate Gravel Company.

I thought the same thing. Very misleading.

You can call me TL if you wish, ha ha. How bout them Tennessee Vols . Well they used to be good. Peyton Manning was great. College football we had San Diego State- Like 5 time champs of small college. Had Don Coryell as coach and later went to NFL coaching. They would sell the stadium out. Then went to Major College and did really well. Went to many a game. Brian Sipe went to Cleveland as QB and almost won it all. Haven Moses and so many others ended up in the NFL. As for the Chargers I probably went to 70 games back then. Seen Joe Namath play and so many other super stars. My friend's uncle had a Pizza parlor. He would drive his RV up in the stadium parking lot. Full of pizza and beer. Game gets over we jump in and about 6 San Diego Chargers come for Pizza, beer and talk. It was so assume. One said to me give me a beer. Gets it and opens bottle top with teeth. Ha! Later in my late 20's I played cards with Hall of Fame player Ron Mix. Also another player called Speedy Duncon went over to their house and played cards with a bunch of people. My mother who used to be a model danced with Keith Lincoln (San Diego Charger star). Saw Lance Alworth and every Charger Hall of Fame player at a game one time or another. Baseball saw every star imaginable one time or another at a game. Then one time I was about 30 went to the Del Mar Race Track. I get there early for great seats in a lawn chair. Right down by the ocean. So I get there and I see Pete Rose and Tommy Helms in a cash ticket line (early and no one else there.) The stories about his gambling even when he was playing are true. The Reds were in town to play the Padres. Back when I was young at a game Cincinnati Reds and Padres I am sitting behind home plate (about 5 rows back). At the plate is George Foster (big Red Machine dude), pitching was Alan Foster. Pitch and foul ball up and back over the screen. Bounces and I catch it. Here is the real kicker. My moms maiden name is Foster-my first name is Alan. What are the odds . Then the hockey. I went to many hockey games to see the San Diego Gulls play, Western Hockey League. Oddest thing I saw was a player on other team got mad at the ref and knocked him out with stick. He sure got his self in a jam. His name was Connie Madigan. Hated player. There's more. Later to be in the AHL. At that time Houston had a team called the Arrows. They came to San Diego. Old Gordie Howe was on it and playing with his sons. Seeing a legend on the ice. Now for another fact. My mothers cousin was Doc Watson (famous Country Western singer, blind). In the CW Hall of Fame. He lived in Boone, NC. He was a Blue Ridge Mountain type of music. Sung and played guitar. Came to San Diego to perform. My mom and I go back stage and get a picture and talk with him. He has passed since. That was like 30 years ago. Seen many things in sports and entertainment.
Maybe if you get a deck of cards and play with them. Then say Go Fish! LOL Also read my story I posted about Gary Puckett and I saw him playing at the Quad Room when I was like 15 or so. I could not go in but saw him come out to have a smoke or two during his breaks. 2 years after he becomes famous with Gary Puckett and The Union Gap. Okay I have typed myself half to death.

WOW, Alan, you just BLEW MY MIND !!
Hubby will be even MORE impressed.
Will comment after the dizziness leaves and I can think clearly.
HAPPY NOVEMBER !
If they hadn't dressed Barbie like Heidi it might have helped.
THANK YOU, Anna !
Good to know I wasn't the only one thinking that

Do you deserve a treat — or were you tricked? That was Lassie?
