This large (2 1/2 feet long) 1950’s poster promoting the Engineer Bill glass was created for supermarkets, dime and drug stores. Engineer Bill (whose real name was Bill Stulla) hosted a children’s cartoon show called, “The Cartoon Express” on KHJ-TV, Channel 9, in Los Angeles from 1954-1966. I found this at a garage sale years ago– it’s in mint condition and is shown here covered in plastic.

    I love that Engineer Bill’s hat is bigger than his head.

    This was on the air long before I got to Los Angeles but there’s no question I would’ve had a full set of these glasses had I been here. I always liked to match whatever TV show I was watching by having the accoutrements and I watched tv ALL the time. I still do.
