Banana Splits Christmas Ornaments (eBay Link)– OMG these are so amazing, it’s weird to find licensed Christmas items like this from the early 70s. It’s pretty commonplace now but the Splits ornaments are truly pioneers!
Weird Baby Spider-Man figure from Brazil (eBay Link)– My friend Courtney sent me this weird thing and mein Gott, did Marvel ever turn down anything? So this is a baby Spider-Man toy, I don’t know who this is for but there it is. Please change Peter Parker’s diaper, with great stink comes a full diaper genie.
A whole bunch of JARU MASH Rack Toys (eBay Link)– This is the motherlode of M*A*S*H rack toys! Most of these Ja-Ru (the company’s name is based on the owner’s son’s names Jason and Russel, who now run the company, trust me on that one) rack toys are pretty on the nose for the show. We’ve got Jeeps and army men, this is the beauty of the label slap peeps.
Mr Ed Halloween Costume (eBay Link)– Hello Folks! I’m the weirdest Halloween costume Brian has seen in some time. I don’t know how a sitcom revolving around a horse with peanut butter smeared in the roof of it’s mouth ran so long or garnered merchandise. I guess it was a simpler time.
Sid and Marty Krofft amusement park mug (eBay Link)– I’m fascinated by the ill-fated indoor amusement park “The World of Sid and Marty Krofft” even though I was never there. The merch pops up occasionally and well, people know how much I loves me some Sleestaks and there one is! I want this. Can’t afford it to save my life but still the desire remains.
