From the 1976 Melrose Gardens Catalog: Here's a switch—the wicked witch waves her magic wand and the gingerbread man is turned into this appealing little fello with lavender standards blended tan along the midribs and flaring, fluted and wide-wide falls painted with brown enamel. Bushy lavender-violet beards and quite in keeping—what a Kaper!
