Item/Description: 1998 Scooby-Doo “Mystery Machine” van-shaped hinged candy/popcorn tin container/box (EMPTY OF FOODSTUFFS ).
Displays beautifully, with ALL of the Scooby-Doo gang, Hanna-Barbera characters visible inside their van - Daphne Blake, Fred Jones, Shaggy Rogers, Velma Dinkley and, of course, “Scooby Dooby Doo”, whose head and lolling tongue are hanging out of the window in 3-dimensional delight.
Additional raised relief imagery on the front surface of this collectible tin box consists of the green “The Mystery Machine” sign and trim, as well as the festive “hippie dippy, flower power” flowers & tires.
Though now empty, this decorative keepsake tin box was originally filled with “Old Fashioned Double Dipped Caramel Popcorn”.
Enjoy this nostalgically retro-style tin for decorative display purposes. Or go ahead and use it to store small trinkets and treasures. It serves equally well as a fun, handy-dandy storage container for children’s crayons/matchbox cars/marbles..... (just about anything one can think of) .
Information About THIS & OTHERS of These Tins: This collectible popcorn tin container was originally sold through Hallmark stores, with not every Hallmark store being furnished with the same variety of tins, so certain tins that were available e.g. in Phoenix, Arizona might not be available in e.g. Queens, New York, which made them instant collectibles as customers vied to obtain all of the assorted tins issued in each of the various production series from the different geographical regions throughout the United States.
There were candy tins as well as tin boxes only (with no foodstuffs inside) produced in commemoration and honor of old television shows (e.g. Howdy Doody and The Munsters). There were Peanuts cartoon characters tins. There were Disney tins. There were Looney Tunes tins, etc.
We are fortunate to have many of these various collector tins in our inventory (with quite a few still containing their original candy/foodstuffs contents), so if you do not see what you are looking for on our web site, please feel free to contact us to inquire further - it just might be in stock but unlisted as yet!

Lastly, there is the slightest bit of tape/adhesive residue present on the underside of the container.
