This time around, we start with some Power Records, beginning with the above Shazam! one that kind of gives away a plot development... If this Batman vs. the Riddler one is the one I'm thinking of, the cover image is better than the actual record itself! I'm not sure why Peter Pan discontinued the Power Records imprint, but this was clearly after that. I don't recall if I've listened to this one yet! I'm pretty sure I've heard one of these Wonder Woman stories... None of the Wonder Woman records I've heard really come off all that well, probably because they didn't get the proper voice talent for WW herself! These GI Joe book and record sets are pretty cool, at least the two I've heard! Heres the last of these... at least for a while... the Superman records I've heard are a bit uneven, some of them aren't bad, some are abysmal. None of them actually use Superman comics as the basis, unlike the Marvel ones that originally came out. Next, we have this Belgium poster for the movie "Prehistoric Women," which I have to admit, I've never seen! Here's the first in a series of Puppets, it's a Mighty Mouse finger puppet which also comes with some kind of space vehicle, so it's kind of two toys in one! Popeye and Wimpy puppets -- with their names across their chests, did Ben Cooper's people design the bodies? Still, I'd love to have these in my toy collection! Next, it's a puppet of Jimmy from H.R. Pufnstuf... and boy, is his body distorted! Plus, I'm not sure how smart an idea it was to have Freddy the Flute sticking out of his pants like that, instead of out of a pocket! Moving on, here's a Belgium poster for "The Purple Monster Strikes" -- I wonder if they called him the Orange Monster, given the coloring on this poster? Flintstones Push Puppet and Card Game! Yes, it's Push Puppet time! That's a great-looking Secret Squirrel Push Puppet! One day, it shall be mine! Yogi Bear push puppet! And lastly, a few Superman push puppets, one of them trapeze style! And now, as you might've guessed, time for some puzzles! Here's a cool Batman one! A very cool Batman Super Powers puzzle! Aquaman Super Powers Frame-Tray Puzzle! GI Joe Puzzle! Atom Ant Puzzle! Frankenstein, Jr. Puzzle! Huckleberry Hound Puzzle! Land of the Lost Puzzle! One of the few pieces of Land of the Lost merchandise made! Monkeepuzzle! Hulk Floor Puzzle! This Marvel Super-Heroes puzzle may have been a Canadian item, given the dual language! Popeye Puzzles! Planet of the Apes Poster Puzzle from Aurora! 1976 Spider-Man puzzle! Star Trek puzzles! Superman Poster Puzzle! And lastly, here's a bunch of Beatles Yellow Submarine puzzles!
