Design: The brightly coloured cartoon-style image, intended to appeal to children, shows two faces: that of a black boy, with a surprised (fearful?) expression on his face, and a tiger. From a web blog: "Little Black [Brave?] Sambo is the tale of an African boy who tricks a pack of voracious tigers into chasing each other round a tree [though the upper (red) segment seems to represent an umbrella] until they melt into butter which he brings home and uses on a batch of delicious pancakes."

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector Owen Burgess of Canada.
