As many of you will no doubt recall, I'm a big fan of Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, a show that I feel deserves complete season releases on DVD instead of the atrocious "Best Of" sets! Anyway, to start with, here's a few issues of the Laugh-In Magazine! Look that up in your Funk & Wagnals!
And not to mix my TV metaphors up too much... but now, for something completely different!
Lone Ranger Action Arcade!
Lone Ranger Comic Game!
Here's a completely different Lone Ranger game!
Mego Lone Ranger Super Softee! I guess even if they weren't able to get the action figure license, they could get this one, eh?
Yes, my friends... Tonto Underoos!
Let's see, we've had Laugh-In and the Lone Ranger... what could be even more different? Oh, yes, Looney Tunes!
Original art for a Looney Tunes puzzle!
As you can probably guess, this Magna-Slide toy was like the Give-A-Show Projector!
Wow, I completely named these photos wrong, else the Scream Along With Marvel/Merry Marvel Marching Society record would've been with the Marvel items, where it belongs!
The seller of this Mighty Mouse action figure claimed it was a Mego made in Mexico... but I wonder?
A Mighty Mouse "Movie Viewer" -- this one using rolls of paper!
Hey, how about we look at some more vintage "movie viewer" items? Above is an actual movie projector from 1947!
From 1974, here's a Kenner viewer that was a bit different from the later one they did! I actually own one of the Cassette Movie Projectors, but haven't been able to get a very bright projection, so it would be nice to get this so I could look at the cartridges!
Here's an Argus movie viewer, that again uses a loop of film!
And finally, here's an Italian toy that uses 8mm film projected onto a screen, at least similar to what was done by Fisher-Price!
Next week: The first of what will no doubt be several weeks of Marvel merchandise!
