WAR BOND POSTER (1943)
"Keep him flying!"
great piece of Hoverboy nostalgia with this Christmas 43
ad for the U.S. Governments 6th WAR LOAN drive. Give the
Victory!, was the rallying cry! Though keen to do their part, as
might expect kids were never very excited to receive WAR BONDS as
from Superman to Mickey Mouse lent their visages
to the war effort, and Hoverboy was no exception. At War
Bond rallies across the country it was not uncommon to see
Hoverboy putting in a live appearance; giving patriotic speeches,
posing for pictures with young fans, and burning effigies
of Axis leaders before excited crowds.
On one such occasion, the actor playing Hoverboy and several
were seriously injured when they became too caught up in
of an already burning straw dummy of Heinrich Himmler.
