I recently came across this Ideal piece demonstrating how much TV advertising they were putting into their Electroman toy. This came as a surprise to me, as Electroman was one of those "What the heck is this?" discoveries at a flea market for me.
I certainly remember Evel Knievel and JJ Armes commercials but I simply don't think I ever ran into the revolutionary electronic toy sensation of 1977....
Better shot of the store display, it's actually quite nice. Click on it for a bigger look.
