1979 Carnival Toy Catalog
Carnival was the premier maker of toy musical instruments in the late 1970s. Their main focus was toy guitars and licensing, making sure they slapped the hottest acs of the time on their guitars (even when they primarily known for disco tunes).
So join KISS, the Village People, Hulk and Spider-man (!), the Bee Gees, Shaun Cassidy on a mystical, musical adventure.
A rather bland cover considering the colourful characters.
Little known fact Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk formed a light rock duet in the late 1970s, mostly doing Steely Dan covers.
I predict that this KISS set sells for big bucks on the collector market now.
I'm beginning to think that Mickey Mouse was a mandatory license in the late 1970s
I love it when they use Old School MIckey, that was a move brought into fashion by Colorform's Mel Birnkrant.
I've run out Mickey Mouse annecdotes!
I wish I had one of these in college...
When KISS was cool *braces for furious email from Vinnie Vincent*.
How did they keep their hair in perpetual flight like that?
That's the same image of Shuan Cassidy used in those posters they sold in the back of comic books, not that I ordered one. Stop looking at me like that!
The Incredible Hulk is the Clarence Clemmons of the Marvel Univere
