Since you guys are making Alleeloaves, I thought this might be the perfect time to submit this. It’s vintage and when I bought it, it was crisp and new! Guess I’m the only one with poor enough taste to appreciate it…and it only took 40 years for it to find the right person!

    Love these colors. The whole sensibility is so 1960s. Of course, the African native cooking the American tourists is no longer an acceptable image but as a timepiece it’s really fantastic.

    I absolutely love how the tip of the flames under the pot pick up the yellow of the stripe inderneath.

    I have a feeling that a lot more people besides Denny and Ernie will go ape over this apron!

    Yeah, I hesitated to submit for this awhile, since the image can be taken as inappropriate and offensive. Of course, that’s NEVER, EVER my vibe, and honestly, I only added this to my collection since I deemed the “African” character cartoonish enough to not offend even me! :) I also just couldn’t resist a cannibal themed dinner apron…Seriously, what were they thinking?! It’s also true that I love most things from the 60s….

    When I saw Denny and Ernie’s fan art Alleeloaf (a culinary triumph!) I had to submit this….The truest form of flattery is being shaped into a meatloaf and consumed!!!!

    Haha, that’s pretty ridiculously cute for being sorta-kinda offensive.. I think it might be too cute to be offensive. I love the look on the guy in the pot’s face…like “this is not what I had planned for my vacation.”
