I think I read somewhere these were marketed during Spanky's early salad days with the Gang. No, I'm not looking for one, thank you. (Eyeroll.) But can anyone give us any idea what they were? Standard ice cream bars with Spank's picture on the wrapper? Special flavor? What?

Hi...Sorry I did not see this sooner but I have an old wrapper with what has to be what your talking about. It was made by Merced Dairy & Ice company Merced, California in the 1930's. It was the official ice milk bar of Hal Roach's Our Gang. It says Modern Maid SPANKY bar with a picture of Spanky in a circle on it and a group shot below with the rest of the cast of that time. It also say 4 fluid ounces lol, I have scanned one of the pics. If you want me to email all of them to you, just email me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll return it with an attachment of the pics. I won it on ebay in May of 2011. I have the pics scanned already, either way please get back to me,
