  1. On This Day: Wham-O Acquires Rights To Frisbee In 1957

    The original Wham-O Pluto Platter.

    60 years ago today, Wham-O purchased the rights to the production of the frisbee, setting the stage for what would become a ubiquitous toy around the world.

    Wham-O bought the rights to the ‘Pluto Platter’ from Walter Morrison, the inventor of the plastic flying disc, on January 23, 1957, and began production later that year. Wham-O changed the name from Pluto Platter to Frisbee a year later.

    An earlier version of this article stated that Wham-O first produced the Pluto Platter 60 years ago today. That is a widely reported falsehood, and, in fact, it was today that Wham-O bought the rights to produce what would become known as the frisbee. Thanks to Robert McLeod and the World Flying Disc Federation for the correction.
