Krofft Supershow Iron On Transfer Book

This past Sunday the first thing I saw when I entered GTA Comic Con was my pal Dana wearing a Magic Mongo T Shirt, which is a sentence I never thought I’d ever type in my life.  Turns out Dana had found this amazing book of Krofft T Shirt transfers that I never knew existed […]

Pod Stallions Epsiode 27b: The Krofft Super Show (Part 2)

Seeing as we were unceremoniously cut off from finishing last month’s show, Jason and myself decided to cut a “mini-sode” in addition to our regular show (which debuts next Friday) to finish what we started. We pick up on “Pink Lady and Jeff” talk about the Bay City Rollers, briefly touch on DC Follies and […]

Pod Stallions 27: The Krofft Supershow (part 1)

We wouldn’t be much of a 70s retro website without a discussion of Sid and Marty Krofft would we? I think we’d have to turn in our “Gen X” badges. Episode 27 takes from the days of HR Puf N Stuf but sadly gets cut short at “Pink Lady and Jeff” due to Jason became […]

Krofft Week: Wonderbug!

Aw yeah, Wonderbug is definitely in my top five Krofft shows, basically a live action speed buggy with a little Shazam! sprinkled in for good measure, what’s not to love. Above is the Wonderbug toy cars made by Duncan (the yo-yo people). Here’s a whole display of them. I really need to track down one […]

Krofft Week: Dr Shrinker

Continuing my love for all thing Krofft, I have always been super fond of Dr. Shrinker. I probably like “Far Out Space Nuts” a l’il bit more but it doesn’t seem to have much merchandise so Shrinker it is… Harmony had the license to make rack toys from all the Krofft Super Show and seemed […]

Pod Stallions Episode 26: The Retro Awards

We’re back and we’re launching our first episode of 2015 resurrecting the Retro Awards. For those not familiar with the Retro Awards, it’s a celebration of things that came out in the last year (for this show we’ve slid into 2013 a l’il bit) that we feel rocked a 70s vibe. Of course along the […]

Banana Splits Flute Set by Larami

Spied this shopping on the weekend, one thing I’ve noticed about Larami toys is often the connection to the licensed product was instantly lost when you took the toy of it’s card. Not that a sticker makes it more official but you get what I’m saying. Rack Toys: Cheap, Crazed Playthings is a limited edition […]

Land of the Lost Moonbase Rocket

  I’d make a joke but somebody, somewhere would send me an email rationalizing this toy by citing an episode that I’ve somehow missed where this makes complete, perfect sense.  So fine, here is a moonbase rocket from Land of the Lost, a series that may have taken place on the moon and featured many […]

Hey! Hey! Hey!

I never ran into these Chemtoy Fat Albert figures as a kid but if I had, they would have so been mine.  I’m not sure why there isn’t a Dumb Donald figure staring back at while I type this, what’s wrong with me? Rack Toys: Cheap, Crazed Playthings is a limited edition 144 page book […]

Colouring Book Theater: Valley of the Dinosaurs

Valley of the Dinosaurs I haven’t done a CBT at all this year, so I’m glad I found this book whilst visiting the groovy retro store Planet of the Stuff two weeks back. I remember this show well as a kid, mostly because to me it seemed like an animated knock off version of my beloved […]
