  1. The excellent likeness of James Garner above is an unexpected pleasure. I don't suppose they got around to The Rockford Files...

  2. Not that I've been able to tell, anyway... by the time the 1970s rolled around, most of the Give-A-Show features were all Saturday morning tv shows... they did do at least one Space: 1999 strip and a couple of Star Trek strips, and they even did separate releases of Give-A-Show Projectors featuring (separately) the Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman. I think their Star Wars Give-A-Show sets (which by then were starting to be marketed towards pre-schoolers for the most part, especially by Return of the Jedi) were probably the last of their sets... at least, so far as I've been able to determine!

    I have found myself wishing that they'd done a whole bunch of other shows and movie characters that would've appealed to kids... imagine how much fun a Universal Monsters Give-A-Show set would've been... or a Godzilla one... or Battlestar Galactica (although I suppose that was out since Mattel had the license there).

    I've been considering, once my own collection is nearly complete (or maybe even before then) making my own custom Give-A-Show strips!
