Yeah, thanks for the clarification!  But, sad to say, I quit buying Bazooka and started buying bubble gum baseball cards early in the 1950s when my favorite player was Mickey Mantle of the Yankee and I spent I do not remember how much just to FIND his baseball card and all my other Yankee favorites (I did finally find one, but sadly all my baseball cards were thrown away by my parents, and my Mickey Mantle cards was worth around a thousand dollars...

What I remember most about Bazook gum was the white powder and the comics inside!  And we used to have bubble gum contests to see who could get the most gum in the mouth and chew it and see who could blow the biggest bubble...

Bazooka Joe was the kid with the baseball cap and eye patch.  Mort was the one with the turtle neck.

I thought the kid in the turtleneck was Bazooka Joe at least that's what we called him in NYC

The boy with his turtle neck pulled up over his face was "Mort".

That pink gum had a sweet fragrance unlike any other. Baseball card  flat gum smelled great, too. I loved the comics AND the gum.

Also, I seem to recall a Bazooka boy character that wore his polo shirt pulled up over half his face.

I got one of the premiums that they advertised on the comics, which were free, plus shipping and handling if you had enough comics to submit, and $.50 if you didn't, along with 5 comics.  I got the little sub that shot torpedos at little ship that flew into about 4 pieces when you hit it right.

Yup.....a penny a piece in the 1960's.  Our barber gave them to the kids after we got our .75 cent haircut (plus .25 cent tip).  He would always slick up our hair with Wildroot....some type of "hair tonic". (?).  At home we used Brylcreem.....blue gel if I remember......"A lil dab will do ya".  LOL  !!!
