8-Bit Videogame Halloween Cut Out Mask #3 – “Scary Burn Man”

8-Bit Videogame Halloween Cut Out Mask 3 BLOGThis Halloween cut out mask began to appear on the sides of A&P grocery bags in Springwood, Ohio sometime in mid-September of 1989.

Through a sponsorship with The Springwood Shopper, Perkin’s Pumpkin Farm and the Costume Corner, A&P would give out special “Halloween treat bags” on Halloween night to any child who trick-or-treated at the store wearing the “Scary Burn Man” mask.  As such not many of the bags survived the Halloween season intact.

This example is from the Springwood District Library archives courtesy of head librarian Evelyn Lantz.
