First up in this edition of "Cool Stuff" is Kenner's See-Action Football, which is another variation on the Give-A-Show Projector, and probably intended to compete with the then-popular electronic football games!
There were at least two versions of this game, one featuring O.J. Simpson on the box!
Here's an early US set that came with a special Kaleidoscope lens!
Another Chad Valley one, after they'd changed the name of the product to "Sliderama" so they wouldn't have to keep paying Kenner for the Give-A-Show name. Same projector though!
Remember last time when I talked about Fortuna and they were also known as Spectrum? I misremembered -- Stellar was the other name! The box art is incredibly deceptive -- the projector isn't anywhere nearly that big!
Another of the more recent revivals of the Give-A-Show Projector format is this Teletubbies projector! Not sure I'll be trying to add that to my collection, though!
Remco tried to get into the act, too -- I've presented my Ugly Mugly slides here before, haven't I?
Time for some glider toys! Here's a Batman glider from Argentina!
Here's the Superman one from Argentina!
Marvel Flyers by Topps! A pretty nice selection of characters there, including some who actually fly!
Next, Gog poster!
Goliath and the Barbarians Poster!
Government Agents Vs. Phantom Legion poster!
Green Hornet time! Here's an electric drawing set!
Serial lobby card above, poster below!
Next, The Green Hornet Strikes Again poster!
Now, it must be Hanna-Barbera time! Here's a nice assortment of plastic figures from Argentina -- how many can you name?
These Argentina pogs might help you identify the above figures, if you can translate their names!
How about some US H-B stuff? Here's an Atom Ant board game!
Baba Looey coloring book from 1960!
Barney Rubble coloring book from 1961!
Flintstones Bath Soaps!
Boo-Boo Bear Coloring Book from 1961! Wow, I really have a lot of second banana character coloring books this time, don't I?
This tablet is a rather bizarre one -- because it features Dastardly and Muttley from their own program, but here's Penelope Pitstop (who'd had her own show by this time, The Perils of Penelope Pitstop), plus Peter Perfect, from Wacky Races!
There'll be more Hanna-Barbera stuff next time, but for now, I'll leave you with this Argentina Barney Rubble car!
