As you will see in a post going up on Thursday, I was a huge fan of the whole Dick Tracy experience in 1990. I loved the movie, I picked up some of the toys, I collected the trading cards and I desperately wanted a watch that doubled as a phone.
In this spot, you can see some of those toys and a replica of the famous watch that basically just told time. If memory serves, there was a set of massive wristwatch walkie talkies you could buy as well.
I don’t know anything about the current Ninja Turtles cartoon, but after re-watching the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie I started searching around YouTube for TMNT toy commercials and stumbled upon this one for the Playmates Mutagen Ooze figures. I gotta say, I know the 6 year old version of me would have thought this goop-tossing action feature would be fantastic, but the 31 year old dad version of me is all like, “Man, that would make for a lot of clean-up.” Dag, you guys, that is a lot of ooze all over the place.
