"The Found and the Hound?"

It's amusing to me that the Superman lunchbox is a boring shot of Clark Kent at work and not Superman saving the day!

If I know kids - and I think I do - they LOVE seeing how newspapers are made.
Aug 29th, 2012 at 12:17 GMT
Another great one Hejman. I wonder what the market is for these in good condition?
Aug 29th, 2012 at 14:43 GMT
@zalkon2004- The Indiana Jones lunchboxes are selling on eBay for between $10 and $60 depending on their condition. The Jaws one is rare and is over $100. The other vary depending on demand and rarity.

"Awww, jeez, what was the name of that movie with the yellow submarine?"
Aug 29th, 2012 at 20:29 GMT
Truly splitting hairs, but the "Planet of the Apes" box shown is linked to the wildly successful 1974 TV show of the same name. The "Star Trek" box in your other quiz is tied to the 1979 movie. I only remember this because I envied a kid in school who had one. Nevertheless, cracking good quizzes and lots of fun!

Love these images. One quibble is that you shouldn't accept Star Wars for The Empire Strikes Back. Also, it's fine to accept Close Encounters, but shouldn't you display the whole name of the film? Ditto for Temple of Doom.
Aug 29th, 2012 at 22:10 GMT
@moviegoer74- Star Wars is accepted for Empire Strikes Back and has been since the quiz was contributed. The shorter movie names are shown in order to prevent the answer space from having to be doubled in length, which would make the image field significantly larger.
Aug 29th, 2012 at 22:40 GMT
@Hejman - re:above That's incredible. I guess if you do it right there's value in being a hoarder.
Aug 30th, 2012 at 15:00 GMT
@Hej...I know Star Wars is accepted. I think you mis-read me. I was suggesting that it shouldn't be accepted. Yoda's not in Star Wars. If people don't know that then they shouldn't get the question right.
Aug 30th, 2012 at 15:16 GMT
@moviegoer74- Ah! Sorry about that, I did misread your comment. I accepted 'Star Wars' only to short-circuit the need to accept a half dozen iterations of 'Episode V'.
Aug 30th, 2012 at 15:45 GMT
^Fair enough. Although I think you could easily justify not accepting any other iterations on the ground that when that lunchbox came out, there were no other iterations. The title was The Empire Strikes Back and that was that. Life was so much simpler before the special editions.

I absolutely had that Rambo lunch box when I was a kid. Nothing says 'Don't steal my sandwich' like a missile launcher.

I hope the person who had the Mary Poppins lunchbox didn't get beat up because of it - I know I wasn't too popular when I had my Waltons lunchbox.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 04:10 GMT
I went through a lot of crazy movie titles (Dragnet, Dukes of Hazzard, Cannonball Run, Bonnie and Clyde) before I noticed the driver was on the right side of the car.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 04:14 GMT
Did they really make the Superman one a picture of Clark Kent at work?
Oct 12th, 2012 at 04:27 GMT
@KarenX that's *exactly* what I was about to post. Ran through some of those same movies (and others), had just about given up on the 100%, and had exactly that same last-second revelation.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 04:27 GMT
Did parents that bought a Goldfinger lunchbox for their kids have to explain the meaning of the Bond girl's name to them?
Oct 12th, 2012 at 05:41 GMT
I would have bought a Soylent Green lunchbox.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 05:51 GMT
The Bond one was tricky, but the hardest part was trying to remember how to spell "Pinocchio."
Oct 12th, 2012 at 05:56 GMT
Also, "First Blood" should be an acceptable answer for the Rambo lunchbox.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 06:45 GMT
The giant messy blue blob one (lower right) totally stumped me. Please tell me someone else took a stab and said Manhattan because it kind of looks like the movie poster with people sitting under the bridge at night. How awesome would that be to have both a Rambo lunchbox and a Woody Allen lunchbox? Thanks for accepting my desperation entry of the main character's name for the one with the silver car.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 07:46 GMT
@bobman1: My first guess for the one you're talking about was "The Philadelphia Experiment." I thought the big lit up part was a Navy ship. (Of course, then I thought, "They made a lunchbox for 'The Philadelphia Experiment'?") I almost gave up then looked at it in that old "magic eye" way and figured it out (which is really odd, since those stupid posters used to give me migraines trying to find whatever picture was supposed to be there).

Finally being British was an advantage on a quiz. I found James Bond just about the easiest one to guess.
Comment below threshold:

I gave up after 30 seconds.Thought Pinocchio was Moby Dick
Oct 12th, 2012 at 12:46 GMT
I sat there staring at the Pinocchio one thinking that I knew I'd seen that whale somewhere. I just couldn't think of it.

In the immortal words of Zeus..."Release the Thermos!"

I find it hilarious how many of these kids' lunchboxes have movies they would never have been able to see, particularly since a lot of them pre-date easy access to VCRs.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 13:39 GMT
@Meltha - I agree! I started to look for "The Deer Hunter" and "The Godfather" lunchboxes. The former came with a revolver and the latter with a lunch kids couldn't refuse.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 13:43 GMT
I'm sure others have picked up on this already, but the Planet of the Apes lunchbox appears to be from the related television show, not the movies, based on the human characters. Great quiz though!
Oct 12th, 2012 at 14:32 GMT
I had some prissy lunchbox, but that didn't stop the food from having that sickening stink to it. I was having wretched flashbacks of grade school lunchtime.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 15:18 GMT
"Okay, folks. We need to make a Superman lunchbox. Find a really cool scene from the movie and put it on the front." "How about Clark Kent chatting at the office?" "Perfect. Johnson, you've done it again!"
Oct 12th, 2012 at 17:01 GMT
@pokemonr, I voted you up only because I too thought it was Moby-Dick, even though I was reasonably sure the Pequod wasn't a raft.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 21:35 GMT
Why... oh God why... is there a Gremlins lunchbox??
Oct 12th, 2012 at 21:38 GMT
@Colomgirl2: because you feed them at lunchtime, not after midnight.
Oct 12th, 2012 at 23:44 GMT
the lunchbox for apes is from the 1974 tv series not one of the original movies. however they did take the episodes and edited them into 4 tv movies in 1981
Oct 13th, 2012 at 01:46 GMT
Was gonna go through this quiz all happy. Then Fox and the Hound "We'll be friends forever, right?" "Yeah, friends forever."
Oct 30th, 2012 at 18:55 GMT
I had the Robin Hood lunch box in kindergarten, circa 1974. Good times!

I though the Rescuers one was Stuart Little
