Banana Seat Bike!  I had one similar to this.  Mine was green and had four leaf clovers on the chain guard and it had a white seat.  It wasn't a 3 speed like I wanted and it didn't have hand brakes like I wanted.  It came from Monkey-Wards too.

My bike as a kid was a Schwinn Stingray much like this one, except mine was orange and had one of those solid slick tires on the back.

Banana Seat Bike; this is the seat I had, along with a neon multi colored frame. People in cars would yell at me "nice bike!" All the time!

You were the "bomb" if you owned a banana seat bike, just like today if a young person has a car first everyone wants to mooch a ride :)

Mine was gold, with a sparkly gold seat and sparkly gold streamers.  I also had a pink and white woven basket.
