My wife has a childhood phobia over Rod Hull’s Emu. I always liked his routine but I also see how it would creep out a kid. I plan to buy this game to hopefully have one of those “Maury Povich” moments where I chase her around with it.
My obsession with Filmations “Tarzan and Super 7” is well documented here. Web Woman would be my #1 favourite of those shows and I literally buy anything I see with her on it (which is not much!) I own this suit and have featured it here.
Brazil strikes again with cool toys. Torak is the enemy of Falcon (AKA GI Joe) and he’s ten times better than the Intruder. I can’t say enough about how cool these are. For those not into an original vintage Torak’s price tag, there are well-done reproductions available.
I’m obsessed with the Lake George NY House of Frankenstein wax museum, despite never having been there. We used to have a Canadian version here in the falls that is still there but it’s more of a haunted house now.
AHI pretty much swiped the “Socker Boppers” concept for these licensed versions. I featured the Batman set about a month or so back but I’ve never seen the Spider-Man set before and look! A rare cameo from Iron Man!
