Colouring Book Theatre: Six Million Dollar Man

The Six Million Dollar Man: Coloring Book By Saalfield  (1975), 
         I've done Six Million Dollar Man books before by Saalfield, but I always enjoy another dip into the Bionic Craze.

Colouring books are usually a mixed bag depending on what reference materials they give the artist, this may be the first time I can accurately deduce exactly what the artist had to work with.

Grab your crayons and beam down me after the jump

The likeness is really sharp in this one, incredibly so and as a bonus, the kid who had this can color well.

This was my first tip off this was based on something other than a bunch of stills, cause I went "Hey that's Victor from "Days of our Lives"!". Planet of the Apes fans know Eric Braeden as Doctor Haslein but I did my soap opera duty back in college, so he'll always be Victor to me....

On the flip side is David McCallum with cheesy moustache, this forced me to IMDB and I found this is all based on the second TV Movie "Wine, Woman and War". It's very early in the series and a little different than the series itself.

Hey Steve, eyes up front.

I love when Colouring books put the brakes on a story.

The Bionic Action comes at the end and it's pretty faithful, you'd think the artist could embellish a little. I remember the comic books gave Steve a laser beam eye.

We're never treated to a shot of the explosion, which, I dunno....MAY HAVE BEN FUN TO COLOR but it's a minor tick in an otherwise pretty cool book!

Thanks again Tracy for the donation! If you have a submission for colouring book theatre drop me a line at brick *at*!

I have two Six Million Dollar Man coloring books, but I don't have this one. Next stop: Ebay.
"Stephanie" must have thought that Britt Ekland looks better as a brunette. Eric Braedon also played a villain on "Charlie's Angels". I enjoyed watching Tanya Roberts beat the poop out of him.
