    When I moved to California in 1976 this lunchbox was one of the first things I found when I started hitting the thrift shops immediately upon my arrival. I wasn’t a Walt Disney freak at all, preferring things that were quite as mainstream, but the box looked so happy I bought it and kept all my X-Acto knives and blades in it. Which meant not only did I carry it all around Hollywood as I art directed sets for music videos in the 80’s and 90’s but it’s made it all the way to 2010 is still housing the X-Actos and making me smile every time I reach for a blade.

    i had big sturdy metal lunchbox that looked exactly like this in elementary school back in the mid-70s, but it wasn’t a disney bus, it was a “u.s. mail” mailbox with mr. zip on it… when i was in fourth grade an older kid from the nearby middle school tried to take it away from me after school and i hit him upside the head with it and knocked him down. this was the first real fight i ever got into… (oddly enough, the second real fight i ever got into was a couple of months ago at my birthday party…)
