Der Wienerschnitzel FRISBEE

Click on any of the photos below for full size image :


During January 2019 while searching Ebay I came across a Frisbee that I had never seen before . This was the sellers auction description and photo :

1977 White Luke Skywalker , promotional item made for Der Wienerschnitzel restaurant . 9 1/2 "  Frisbee type Flying Disk ,  1 of 12 made .

I took a chance at buying and got it for the minimum bid of $34.95 . When it arrived it looked like this :

The seller shipped it in a oversized bubble envelope with one small piece of cardboard and wrapped in a 1/2 sheet of newspaper banghead2

Luckily I received a full refund and , since the seller didn't want it back , I did my best to piece it back together …

Although it's far from perfect , I felt it was better then throwing it away

I still had no idea how accurate the sellers description & history was since I was never able to find any other info or photos of it online .

I reached out to the seller to see if he could provide more information .

E-Mail Conversation :

Hi again - 1st off , Thank you very much for the refund .  I wanted to let you know that I spent about 4 hours piecing it back together the best I could , it seems a shame to just throw away what may be a pretty rare item . I do a lot of research on oddball vintage Star Wars merchandise and to my amazement , so far I have not been able to find any info or even another picture . I was wondering where you got your info from and/or if you know anything else about the Der wiener promotion ? You said it was 1 of 12 - do you mean there were 12 different designs or that there was only 12 of the Luke frisbee made ?

Sorry for so many questions - LOL !

Sellers Answer :

Hi James - a relative worked in California, during the initial Star Wars craze . His boss at Der Wienerschnitzel had 12 of these locally made and must have known he could not use George Lucas's images . When Bill comes to pick his check up I'll ask  if he knows more about the image on the frisbee .

Thanks , Rick .

Seller Follow up with more information :

Hi, James - I had lunch with Bill today . He worked in Anaheim , California at Der Weinerschnitzel in 1977 . A coworker's dad that worked at a local advertising firm had 12 prototype frisbees produced at the owners request . The restaurant owner declined to purchase the minimum amount of 150 pieces because of the adverse cost . The father gave the employee's son the 12 prototypes which were used at the park when the employee's gathered together . Bill was given the one you have which he used it for a couple weeks , then placed it in storage . Unfortunately no one seems to remember the name of the advertising firm that produced the 12 frisbees - Rick

Added the Der Wienerschnitzel Frisbee to the library (1st post above) and added some more information from the seller ...

Hi, James - I had lunch with Bill today . He worked in Anaheim , California at Der Weinerschnitzel in 1977 . A coworker's dad that worked at a local advertising firm had 12 prototype frisbees produced at the owners request . The restaurant owner declined to purchase the minimum amount of 150 pieces because of the adverse cost . The father gave the employee's son the 12 prototypes which were used at the park when the employee's gathered together . Bill was given the one you have which he used it for a couple weeks , then placed it in storage . Unfortunately no one seems to remember the name of the advertising firm that produced the 12 frisbees - Rick

That's a fantastic piece of gimcrack. It's too bad the seller didn't ship it better.
