And we're into the f's this week, beginning with the above Flash Gordon Better Little Book!

Ah, such a classic movie... I really need to get this one on DVD again!

OK, now for some Give-A-Show stuff, or at least related stuff! Above is a 1981 release, probably one of the last ones they did, which featured just Hanna-Barbera characters, most notably Scooby-Doo and the Flintstones (although I believe Yogi Bear was there, too). You'll note this was being marketed as a preschool toy at this stage!

Remember the Tru-Vue story card videos I posted in September? Of course you do! Here's what these looked like in the package (at least mine did, as I still don't own a projector).

Marx Toys made the Flashy Flickers, which did boast some of the DC Characters in the film strips you could get -- too bad they're so freaking expensive these days!

Looks like a View-Master projector, doesn't it? Well, it's not -- and it's not even the same scale, if Fortuna's other knockoffs are any indication! This might possibly fit two "D" batteries in the projector unit... maybe!

Fortuna projector and separate pack of Give-A-Show slides. Definitely NOT in the same scale to each other!

And finally, here's Kenner's Talking Show Projector! I've got some of the slides and records for this, but have yet to manage to get the projector!

Green Hornet Time! First, flicker rings!

Next, a "movie viewer" (which, despite the photos on the card, I'm guessing features panels from the Gold Key Green Hornet comic book, with no color whatsoever).

A long time ago... I posted a few Hamilton Invaders photos, and someone suggested I get more of them. Well, it's been a few years, and here's what I discovered!

And Blue Defenders! Sorry, I can't tell you a thing more about these than that!

Next week: Hanna-Barbera stuff!
