Mantooth: The Commercial





Recently discovered in the basement of Odeon Toys Founder Vic Machismo's house, this commercial for the Brick Mantooth doll hasn't seen air since the fall of 1976, when it aired on Buffalo 29 at 3:30 am in between a rerun of "Room 222" and another rerun of "Room 222". We are happy to unveil this unique piece of toy history.




Many props to my pal Rob Chatlin who lovingly restored the film to it's former glory, without his help, this wouldn't be. Hopefully we unveil more Odeon Commericals in the coming months.
 
More updates on Mantooth very soon. Stay tuned, well the internet doesn't have dials but you get the idea...
