Pops Pirate was a children's radio show which ran on CBS radio from June 27, 1932 to July 29, 1932. The show was sponsored by Wheat and Rice Puffs cereal. Other button designs include the rank of Captain featuring an image of skull and cross bones,1st Mate featuring a pair of flintlocks, and 3rd Mate featuring a pirate flag.
Often early radio programs advertised ‘clubs’ as well as souvenirs which their listeners could obtain by sending in a proof of purchase, such as a boxtop, from the sponsor's product. Advertisers issued cards, buttons, badges, hats, magic rings and other items. .
