Feeling infantile, so here’s some YouTube clips of stuff that permeated my consciousness as a wee Contrarian.
Ad for Kenner “Alien” figure, circa 1979. (My favorite toy EVER):
Ad for Creature Double Feature (WLVI Channel 56, Boston):
Ad for New England Aquarium (WLVI Channel 56, Boston):
“Be Prepared” — Scouts ad, circa early 1970s. (WLVI Channel 56, Boston):
Horror host Son of Svengoolie (originally a Chicago product, but syndicated via Boston):
Micronauts toy ad (an older kid I knew had this, and I bought it from him on the cheap when he got tired of it):
I could do this forever.
