Today, playing Frisbee is one of the most popular backyard games in the United States. While discs have been included in sports since ancient times, it wasn't until the 1950s that the idea for a true "flying disc" came about.
On Thanksgiving Day in 1937, Walter Frederick Morrison and future wife Lucile were throwing a popcorn lid back and forth and found it an enjoyable game. They later did the same thing with a cake pan on a beach near Los Angeles when a passerby offered them 25¢ for the rudimentary flying disc. It was at that moment the couple realized they could design and market such a disc as a new business.
At first, the Morrisons sold cake pan designs, but after World War II, Walter came up with an entirely new aerodynamically improved design. He called it the Whirlo-Way and produced the first plastic versions in 1948. Later versions were renamed the Flyin'-Saucers, and then the Pluto Platter in 1955. Morrison sold the rights to his invention to Wham-O in 1957, and the company's co-founders renamed the disc "Frisbee" after a nickname given by Yale University students.
In 1964, Wham-O's general manager Ed Headrick redesigned the Frisbee to be a more controllable disc. Popularity soared after that, and in 1998, the Frisbee was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame.
