This "Welcome Back Kotter" paper doll of super teacher Mr. Kotter (1970s TV star Gabe Kaplan) is complete in the original box, with the shrink wrap still intact. It has never been opened, but I know it contains a "Magic Touch" paper doll of Kaplan in his skivvies (a Groucho tank top and boxers with little red hearts).

You can have hours of fun dressing him in his outfits: his signature sport coat for teaching, Hawaiian wear for the beach, fly-fishing gear, pajamas, and a 1920s bathing costume. There are no troublesome paper tabs to fold--the clothes stay on by static electricity (magic)!

The set was manufactured by The Toy Factory, and is marked ©1976 The Wolper Organization, Inc. and the Komack Company, Inc. The box still has its price sticker from Kaybee Toys. The box shows some very light foxing (spots) under the plastic, and except for a slight crease in the lower right corner, is perfectly intact.

I loved this show when I was a kid, and confess to having a bit of a crush on Mr. Kotter. Now, you can indulge your seventies nostalgia and have a great time playing with this fun paper doll!

Box: 7.25 by 15.25 inches
(18.42 by 38.74 cm)
