...or was it the Devilish Man from two posts ago? This 1940's, solid plastic, novelty statue made during WW2 utilized the popular "Kilroy was here" slogan of the era to poke (literally) a little fun at the apparent booming side of our returning armed forces. Yes, now gunning hard at targets considered less enemy, and more of the female persuasion, someone else online summed it up perfectly with: "...it certainly makes for an offbeat addition to any wartime collection, remaining an interesting cultural artifact from a different time." Made by Hartland Plastics, Inc. in Wisconsin, the real question I'm sure everyone has is why this cute, and very pregnant 3 1/2" tall girl was designed to look like a 12 year old bobbysoxer!
Good lord, that is a little discomfiting.
Looks like 'V' isn't just for victory.
My dad bought one of those statuettes many years ago, I still have it somewhere.
My favorite Kilroy expression- Kilroy was here just for the beer.
People weren't so uppity about age then.
I think of 'Kilroy' from the climax of 'Kelly's Heroes'(a hugely underrated film).
Yeah, that's a little ... uncomfortable.
Not just the age, but the hollow scary video game character face!
Yeah wow the - very young looking - girl's whole vibe is pretty melancholy and dark. And the way one of her feet is on top of the other makes her seem even younger. I hope you put her next to some happy figurines so she has some uplifting company.
