Back in '76
Synopsis of Lunch Box
1976 was a boom year for American patriotism as the country reveled in the celebration of its bicentennial anniversary. Kids wrote poems about Benjamin Franklin for class and wrapped themselves in a hopeful combination of red, white and blue clothing. Aladdin, ever conscious of national events, released the Back in '76 metal box with matching plastic thermos in late 1975, anticipating the following year's events. One side of the box had children waking up to watch the legendary ride of Paul Revere. The other side showed George Washington keeping a very keen eye on a young man's industrious work. The side panels depict a very cartoon-like rendition of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This lunchbox actually made you proud to eat your lunch in the land of the free.
