Five Awesome Things on eBay this week


Batman Crazy Foam-  There is just something so fascinating about Crazy Foam, it came out during that wonderful Superhero resurgence of the mid-1970s, I vividly remember an end cap of these and Mego Superheroes at my local Eaton's toy department and I'm magically whisked back to the time that I wanted Spider-Man to barf on me. 



Dr. Zaius Bank Mold- Oh wow, this thing is so freaking cool, the original mold for the 70s plastic banks. I want this, badly but it's Christmas and I simply can't swing it. My loss is your gain.



Italian Stretch Armstrong-  In Italy, he's "Mister Muscolo" who was also my tenth-grade gym teacher, he was kind of a dick. Anyway, Stretch appeards to have red trunks in Italy, talk about variations.




Tales of the Gold Monkey Story Book- I loved this series as a kid, mainly because of my mad crush on Caitlin O'Heaney and of course, Roddy McDowell. This series doesn't get mentioned a lot because of you-know-who but we need more shows like this.




Italian Mego Fonzie- Fonzie was popular around the globe it seems and it makes sense that the most popular character was supposed to be Italian, he might be popular in Italy. Sadly, Richie, Potsy and Ralph Malph were not required.

I think most tenth grade gym teachers are dicks.

Even though I haven't watched the show since its original air date, I can still hum the intro music to Golden Monkey.

Who is you-know-who? Did Spielberg sue to get that show off the air?

I think the reference is to the star of the show, Stephen Collins.

You had a mad crush on Roddy McDowell?����

Great show! I need to find a few episodes, I haven't seen it since I was a kid.

I too loved Golden Monkey. I was able to find a model of the seaplane from the show while it was airing and was super pleased.

@Indigo Mariana - Roddy McDowell couldn't do wrong in my young eyes.
@crooow- Yeah, I was referring to Collins and his overall ickyness.

We had so much Crazy Foam when I was a kid!
