Wham-O Manufacturing Co. of California began producing the
Pluto Platter — soon renamed the Frisbee. 

"The Frisbee started off as nothing more than a container that
carried pies," reported University of Southern California online engineering publication Illumin Magazine, which analyzed the
physics and
history of the toy.

"However, through the ingenuity of some college students, the inventiveness of Fred Morrison, and the marketing savvy of the
Wham-O Manufacturing Company, it eventually became an
immensely popular and internationally recognized toy."
