Tom Corbett Tendril Space Gun ?

Well silly string was not available until 1972. How popular was Tom Corbett in the 1970s? 1980s? to justify making a new toy. The clear safety cap that covers the nozzle on the can would not have been added later. The crinkling at the top of the label would indicate the label is made of paper and would have been caused by the cap being pressed on. I don't believe Wham-o would have planned such a poorly designed label and I don't believe they would have issued a product without their name on it. The early cans of silly string is depicted in the 1972 ad below. Because of the patent on Silly String other companies would not have copied it until later. So it would appear to me that it is a cool DIY piece. Please correct me if I am wrong.
