With no offense to Daddy Warbucks, the Dukes of Hazzard or the Smurfs but the WKRP record player is hands down the best one made in the 1980s. The “Sing Along” aspect allowed you to actually “Be” Dr. Johnny Fever or Venus Flytrap but likely no kid wanted to be Bucky. Also, I want to […]
Vanity Fair made some unique licensed radios and turntables in the 70s. I particularly love the wrist radio (used for things like James Bond and Space: 1999) for Holly Hobby is surreal. However, it is all redeemed by the Fonzie jukebox, which functions as a prop for your Mego figures. The […]
I never got the fever although i didn’t mind the brothers Gibb. Years later my teenage son would start playing BeeGee’s records loudly, I guess that’s how you rebel against parents who still listen to GWAR. We live in sad “Dog earless” times people.

“Feel like Batman triumphing over his arch-enemy” yup, the ol’ caped crusader just loves to kill in cold blood, with a gun. I’m beginning to think Frank Miller got his start in the toy industry.

Remember kids, each Safari Hunt comes with a personalized angry letter from Dian Fossey!
I’m sort of glad I didn’t have these as a kid, I don’t want to associate Bugs Bunny with my life long hatred of getting out of bed.
This may be the spiffiest Fonzie toy ever made and if I’m not mistaken, it’s in scale with the Mego doll!
I have no idea if this Electric Company merchandise by Vanity Fair ever got released but I loved this show as a kid and would have been all over that Fargo North radio and Jennifer of the Jungle items. Not surprising, Vanity Fair also had the Spider-Man license so even he’s involved. “Send Spidey those […]
