Retro Toy Chest: Remember Remco's Movieland Drive-In? (1959)

Remco's not around anymore, but their history dates back to at least the 50's.

From 1959, here's an ad for their short-lived Movieland Drive-In Theatre set. The company got licensing deals from CBS (Have Gun...Will Travel) and Terrytoons (Heckle & Jeckle, Farmer Al Falfa, Mighty Mouse), but apparently they weren't enough in terms of selling points.

This ad also features Patty Duke in one of her earliest television appearances.
