A clear cylinder with holes that you stuck wooden sticks through, in a criss-cross manner. Once all the sticks were in, you filled the top of the cylinder with marbles. One by one, each player would draw out a stick, until all the marbles ker-plunked down to the bottom!

This game was great, I remember loading the marbles on top. The sticks were different colors. The comment from AMY above, is hysterical. Things really were dangerous.

An okay game. Pulling out the wrong "stick" would mean most of the marbles falling into your compartment and making a heck of a racket. Newer versions exist of this game but all the components are extremely flimsy in comparison.

How great was playing this game? But how annoying was it setting it up to play? I would always beg my parents to set it up.

It took forever to put all the sticks into the holes. Removing them and having the marbles drop went fast.

Ideal Toys first introduced Ker Plunk in 1967. Came with 48 marbles and 40 sticks. Discontinued in 1974. From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, an early TV commercial which aired on the controversial "Super President/Spy Shadow" show (11/18/67, NBC).
