King Seeley Thermos Dynomutt lunchbox

The King Seeley Thermos Dynomutt lunchbox is a vintage lunchbox featuring the animated 1970s cartoon characters Dynomutt and the Blue Falcon.

Background

The character of Dynomutt was created by the animation studio Hanna-Barbera, and appeared in a Saturday morning cartoon which ran on ABC from September 1976 until October 1977.

The show featured superhero known as the Blue Falcon, whose sidekick was the clumsy robotic dog Dynomutt (known as Dog Wonder). The characters resided in Big City, and fought a number of super villains including Superthug, Fishface, Lowbrow and the Hornet Queen.

The King Seeley Thermos lunchbox was produced in 1977, after the first season had aired. The second season lasted just four shows before being cancelled.

The box also came with a yellow plastic thermos flask with a white cup/lid, the sides of which featured images of Dynomutt.
