We've talked before about how pancakes kept popping up in the oddest places in the 1970s. It shouldn't be surprising given the epidemic levels reached during the decade; however, it still is a bit strange to find in children's books. I guess seventies swingers felt the need to teach their kids young in the fine art of pancake making.
I was lucky enough to find a copy on ebay without much damage; coloring books, as you might imagine, often are colored in and rarely in good condition.
One wonders how the poor unfortunate recipient of this coloring book felt back in '77. Imagine the disappointment of not getting a Spider-Man or Hulk coloring book, but instead getting this rather disturbing look into the late seventies libido.
So, I ask that while you are enjoying the scanned pages from The All About Pancakes Coloring book, you stop to think about all the kids who had to break out the art supplies for this seedy mess. Let's hope they had an ample supply of "flesh" colored Crayolas.
