Next up, the poster for the probably awful movie Girl From Starship Venus!

giveashow_1935duxkino_germa.JPG
Here's an unusual item... this is a 1935 "Dux Kino" from Germany... and doesn't that look like an ancient ancestor of the Give-A-Show projector?

giveashow_81scooby
Hey, this is the box for the Give-A-Show videos being presented here this month!

giveashow_argentina
Here's an Argentina release of the Give-A-Show projector from the early 1980s, with Super Powers, Flintstones, Scooby Doo, AND Strawberry Shortcake!

giveashow_chadpooh.JPG
Chad Valley Winnie-The-Pooh set!

giveashow_chadvalley1961.JPG
1961 Chad Valley Give-A-Show Projector set -- and no, it did not project that large an image from that close!

giveashow_chadvalley_aristocats
Chad Valley Aristocats!

giveashow_chadvalley_thunderbirds
Chad Valley Thunderbirds!

giveashow_disneyprojector
This Donald Duck projector is a closer relative to the Easy-Show Projector! I actually own two of these right now, although one is missing some parts. As I'm writing this, I have yet to actually try the complete one out!

giveashow_disneyprojector.JPG
Disney Film Strip Projector! This may use film strips similar to the hand-held "Movie Viewers" that were popular until sometime in the 1970s.

giveashow_fortuna1
giveashow_fortuna2
Fortuna was one of those companies from Hong Kong (also produced the same under the "Spectrum" name) that copied not only the Give-A-Show Projector, but also the View-Master Projector!

giveashow_highschoolmusical
giveashow_indianajones
As proof that the Give-A-Show Projector (or at least its basic form) never goes away for long, here's two more recent toys... based on High School Musical and the last Indiana Jones movie!

giveashow_lionelprojector1.JPG
giveashow_lionelprojector2.JPG
Going back to the vintage stuff, here's a Lionel Projector that competed with the Give-A-Show!

giveashow_magnasldeprojector
Magna-Slide Projector I actually own!

giveashow_powerrangers1.JPG
giveashow_powerrangers2.JPG
giveashow_powerrangersslide.jpg
Power Rangers Projector and extra Slide Pack! Sadly, I do own one of these... and it's one of the worst examples of this kind of toy, in my opinion -- no story at all, just individual scenes! One day, when I'm in a grumpy mood anyway, remind me to post the video here...
