1952 to 1961

Heddon Tiny Torpedo Spooks are one of the most successful production lures, spanning over 50 years. With this long production period, comes many variations both in cataloged and non-cataloged colors. It can be one of the toughest lures to color collect.

I'm going to attempt to show all colors known, with some variations. Please remember that I'm showing 1952 to 1961 colors, see Later Tiny Torpedo Colors for the creme eye versions of some of these colors.
