Cooky Cucumber is no kook. She’s on a skateboard, but her friend Katie Carrot on the balance board… well, we can’t vouch for her. Actually, these gals may not even know each other, I think Mr Potato Head is playing the field a little bit. “Hey baby, nobody said we were exclusive!”
These Cooky Cucumber and Katie Carrot boxes circa 1966 are courtesy of MrPotatohead.net, a site dedicated to all things nostalgic about Mr Potato Head. When he was invented in the 50’s, it was just a collection of plastic parts that you were supposed to stick into actual potatoes. It wasn’t until 1964 that he started to ship fully plastic and self contained.
