Hungry Horace

This was a stand-up cut out in the shape of a dishevelled cowboy (if memory serves me right). There were holes at his mouth, and his 'drawn' pistols. It was basically a game where you had to throw the balls through the holes to get a set number of points. The big thing that sticks in my mind about this game was the smell of the thing. It was a really strong artificial plastic cheese-type smell. Yuk!

    I dimly remember that this was the subject of a copyright suit back in the '70s, as 'Hungry Horace' was also the name of a cartoon character in The Dandy. I think the comic tried to sue the makers of the game for pinching their character's name- I don't think they succeeded.
