PlaidStallions 15th Anniversary Contest!

PlaidStallions 15th Anniversary Contest!

In celebration of my decade and a half blogging about random pop culture, I’d like to give away some stuff to show appreciation. Here are the fabulous prizes for this go-round.

3rd Prize- A toy ventures 3 pack

This includes all three issues of Toy-Ventures magazine and all three of the perks, which include the now sold-out AHI monster buttons, the Monster Squad Trading cards and the soon-to-be out-of-stock Captain Zargon Iron-On transfer. 


2nd Prize: A Ron: Space Pimp doll from Odeon Toys

A limited edition action figure of one of our Pod Stallions mascots (for the record this is supposed to be Jason, I’m Satin Monster) I didn’t make a lot of these and they always sell out when I do so have at her!


1st Prize- A Brick Mantooth Latchhook Rug

Is there anything more 1970s than a latch-hook rug of Brick Mantooth? Buster I’d like to see it. This glorious prize was created by my pal Steve’s awesome sister and there are only three of these in the world, you will be in a cool club.

How to Play:




I’ll randomly draw and announce the winners here and on the PlaidStallions Facebook page this Saturday night.

Thank you all for being a part of this journey, good luck!

  • John Wallace on April 27, 2021

    “Sit on it!”

  • Danny Cruz on April 27, 2021

    God will get you for that Walter!

  • Alexandra on April 27, 2021

    I’ve been reading this site pretty much since it started. Found it searching for the talking Ernie doll, if I remember correctly.
    Anyway, my favorite catchprase from a 70s sitcom is probably “Kiss my grits!”

  • Chris Cummins on April 27, 2021

    Does Mr. Roper’s constant mugging at the camera count as a catch phrase? I guess that’s more of a catch motion, so I’ll go with Blair Warner’s “I just had another one of my brilliant ideas” that she used in the early seasons of The Facts of Life (which is technically a 70s and an 80s show!)

  • Bruce Aparton on April 27, 2021

    Elizabeth! I’m coming to join ya!

  • Paul Golin on April 27, 2021

    Congrats. Mine is: Don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.

  • James Long on April 27, 2021

    While it’s not a sit-com, the first catch phrase that leapt to mind for me is from Battle of the Planets:

    Big 10!

    Though, in this case, it should probably be Big 15! Congratulations!!

    Psychologist Sid Freeman from M*A*S*H*., “Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice. Pull down your pants and slide on the ice.”

  • Brett O'Neal on April 27, 2021

    “Hey Hey Hey” by ReRun in What’s Happening?

  • John Stater on April 27, 2021

    “Kiss my grits” came immediately to mind, though I must admit I don’t say it as often as I might these days.

  • Scot Seguine on April 27, 2021

    “He’ll be back. They all come back.”

    Congratulations on a successful 15 years, Brian! Thanks for making us more Stallion! Here’s to another 15 years!

    • Stephen Hanson on April 27, 2021

      There’s gonna be trouble.

    Jimmie Walker AKA J.J.
    Good Times 1974-1979

  • OZ on April 28, 2021

    “Dyn-O-Mite!” was so huge I think they had to say it in every show! LOL

  • Chris Bailey on April 28, 2021

    It has to be “Sit On It” from Happy Days which I still use it to this very day! When Ritchie Cunningham would throw in the extra word to make
    “Sit on it Bucko!!”
    That’s pure gold!! Bucko!

Seriously, this is what I did, I probably should seek help or grow the fuck up because doing something THIS cowardly is pretty weak. I’m also not very bright, I left a comment that a 7th grader would call lame. I use AOL because I am stuck in 2003. I create nothing.
