Daktari Bubblebum Cards from 1966

Did any of you collect Daktari bubblegum cards when they first came out in 1966? I don’t know how I missed that seeing as there was a drugstore with a terrific candy counter right down the street. But, thanks to the internet, we get a chance to see all these great cards!

The front sides looked like this:

The back sides are puzzle pieces:

I assembled a few of the puzzles:




Download the cards and see if you can put together the puzzles. If you can, send a picture back to me of the assembled puzzle and I’ll post it on the site.

Anybody have the original cards? Tell me true: did you keep the bubblegum? πŸ˜‰
