It's time for Cool Stuff! Let's see what I have this time around...
So, I'm sure you've noticed one thing here immediately... this is no Archie Andrews on these film strips that you recall from Archie Comics, right? Well, that's because this isn't that Archie Andrews! The picture you see is of a ventriloquist dummy by that name, manipulated by Peter Brough. He was popular in the UK in the 1950s and 1960s. If you're curious about this Archie Andrews, check out this video:
Next up, here's a home movie projector for kids! I'm guessing this was produced in the 1950s or earlier, given the presence of Laurel and Hardy on the box, but I could be wrong!
Back in more familiar territory, here's a Snuffy Smith frame-tray puzzle!
Here's a group of geeky puzzles... I can't help but notice the Superman one has a rather familiar-looking lizard/dragon, that was discussed in the back pages of Back Issue! recently!
Check this out... this assortment of puzzles are based on Big Little Book covers, and the packaging even makes them look like Big Little Books! I'd love to get the Fantastic Four, Shazzan, and Frankenstein Jr. ones, myself!
Next, a still from Quatermass and the Pit!
This set of Superhero Records would've been an awesome win on eBay, wouldn't it? Although I still find myself wondering why a Metamorpho record was made, and not, say, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, or any other DC character who was more popular!
Robby the Robot toy! This is awesome!
Robinson Crusoe on Mars Mexican lobby card!
I love checking out old robot toys, this was the first time I'd seen Robot Commando!
Of course, here's a classic robot toy that has endured!
Rocketeer coloring book! I really need to see this movie again soon...
Rocky Jones coloring book! I don't remember if this is the same book I posted a while back.
