Description (Brief)
This tin lunch box was manufactured by Thermos in 1967. The lunch box features imagery from the television series The Green Hornet on the lid, sides and back. The Green Hornet was originally created as a radio program in the 1930s, but existed as film serials, comic book series, and a television show that this lunch box was based on. The show ran for one season in 1966, and starred Van Williams as the crime-fighting Green Hornet, and Bruce Lee as his sidekick Kato.
