Got a second flipper collectible at the Long Beach Antique Faire/Market. I rarely find flipper (flipper is all lower case) items but I found 2 in the same place although different dealers.
On to the piece it is boxed set of for 8"x10" frame tray puzzles. All 4 feature flipper and two have Bud and the other 2 have Sandy. In this Sandy has red hair and Bud has black hair and don't quite look like the actors who played them. flipper had only been around five years at this point so you can't expect the artist to know what the actors looked like. Someone at Whitman probably said they got it wrong and someone else said little kids won't care so here we are.
The fun thing about the show is that not only do the kids have a pet dolphin but they have their own boats. And they go scuba diving, exploring islands, going out with their dad to bust criminals etc.
