Evel Knievel Battery Powered Toothbrush from Kenner (1975)

In an attempt to make a child’s daily ritual of brushing their teeth as thrilling as jumping over Snake River Canyon, Kenner released the Evel Knievel Battery Powered Toothbrush.

Designed by Marvin Glass & Associates, the toothbrush was powered by two D-batteries and featured Evel’s famous X-2 Skyrocket Cycle and Launch Ramp as power handle and holder. Also included in the set were two kid-sized toothbrushes and two adaptors for additional toothbrushes.
