Another colouring book I found rummaging through Planet of the Stuff a couple of weeks ago.
Like a lot of 70s kids, I non-ironically stood in a mirror going "Ayyyyy!" and begged my parents for a leather jacket. I loved Happy Days, had a Mego Fonize doll and even bought the (lame) Gold Key comic, so it seemed fitting that this would be a fun colouring book to review here.
However all that positive energy leaked out when I realized this book was from 1983, a time when Fonzie was a 35 year old shadow of himself and most of the interesting cast members were long since gone, paving way for a big pile of who gives a crap.
Let's take a look at this after the jump...
First off, it seems the artist uses the same image of Fonzie throughout the book, he's depicted as having this weird, almost psychotic grin for every page.
It seems the overall malaise of the series has trickled down to the (probably underpaid) staff of Playmore Publishing as this book has a large chunk devoted to spring cleaning in the Cunningham house.
Yes, that's Ted McGinley, who was to this show what Beau was to "Welcome Back Kotter".
I'll take this page to mention that the kid who had this coloured exactly two pages of this snore fest. I'm also being generous when I say "colouring" because it's more like stabbing the page with a crayon as if to express their displeasure.
Fonzie, Roger and Flip (Who the $&%* is Flip?) go camping but my hopes for Deliverance style antics go sadly unabated.
