Superhero Saturday: As She-Ra was to He-Man, Starla & the Jewel Riders (known as Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders in North America) was to The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers, sharing the same creator and writers even if there was no explicit narrative link. Here, the young princess of Avalon, Gwenevere (Starla), and her fellow Jewel Riders, Fallon and Tamara, must find enchanted jewels to bring back their banished mentor, Merlin, stop the evil sorceress Lady Kale from taking over and thus restore harmony to their kingdom. It died a quick death between September 9, 1995 and December 12, 1996 but was popular in France.

Superhero Sunday: the incredibly effective Blue Falcon and his sidekick ‘Dog Blunder’ Dynomutt were in reality millionaire socialite art dealer Radley Crown (voiced by Gary Owens) and... well... Dynomutt (voiced by Frank Welker) a robot dog. They fought crime in Big City, alerted by the Falcon Flash but unlike the Batcave, their base of operations was high in the sky; the Falcon's Lair being situated in Crown's penthouse apartment. The wannabe Batman team aired from September 11, 1976 – October 29, 1977 and in perpetuity in syndication. #toyboxing #dynomutt #bluefalcon #hannabarbera #hannabarberacartoons #cartoon #cartoons #superheroes #animation #saturdaymorningcartoons #dynomuttdogwonder #vintagetoys #vintage #vintagecartoons #scoobydoo
Fangface Friday: combine Scooby-Doo with the Tasmanian Devil by way of a werewolf and you get Ruby-Spears’ Fangface and his teenage buddies solving crimes and stopping crooks! Running from September 9, 1978 - September 27, 1980, pictured here in their Wolf-Buggy are handsome leader Biff, his brainy and beautiful girlfriend Kim, pugnacious Puggsy and skinny simpleton Sherman "Fangs" Fangsworth who transforms into the titular Fangface whenever he looks at the full moon, a picture of the moon, or actually anything resembling the moon. Fun fact: Puggsy and Fangs are based on Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall of The Bowery Boys fame.

Fangface Friday: “Every 400 years, a baby werewolf is born into the Fangsworth family, and so when the moon shined on little Sherman Fangsworth, he changed into Fangface, a werewolf! Only the sun can change him back to normal, and so little Fangs grew up and teamed up with three daring teenagers – Kim, Biff and Puggsy – and together they find danger, excitement and adventure! Who can save the day, who can wrong the rights and right the wrongs .... none other than Fangface!” from the opening title narration by John Stephenson.

Transformer Tuesday: with Deluxe Insecticon Venom. The tale of the Deluxe Insecticons is a sad one. They were originally produced by Takatoku Toys for their Armored Insect Battalion Beetras toyline and when Takatoku went out of business in 1984, their assets were purchased by fellow Japanese toymaker Bandai...

Transformer Tuesday: with Deluxe Insecticon Ransack.

Transformer Tuesday: with Deluxe Insecticon Chop Shop. As Hasbro and Takara used the Transformers cartoon as promotional material for the toyline, the Deluxe Insecticons were never included to avoid giving their licensor Bandai free publicity. Their non-appearance here along with little more than cameos in the UK and Dreamwave Transformers comics has meant the characters are amongst the most narratively under-developed of all the Transformers characters. Poor Deluxe Insecticons. A cruel fate for such cool toys.

Monday Memories: Ah, Little Audrey. The name first appeared in dirty jokes and folklore before being applied to a new Famous Studios animated character created as a variation on Little Lulu after Paramount decided not to renew the license on the comic strip character. She was voiced by Mae ‘Betty Boop’ Questel. Little Audrey would go on to star in Harvey comics for decades after Harvey purchased the rights to all of Famous' original properties - Little Audrey included - in 1958 (1959, Hungerford vinyl figure) #toyboxing #littleaudrey #littlelulu #cartoon #cartoons #saturdaymorningcartoons #animation #famousstudios #harveycomics #casperthefriendlyghost #richierich #vintage #vintagecartoons #vintagetoys #vinyltoy #arttoy #classiccomics
Monday Memories: The 1966 Man from U.N.C.L.E Thrush-buster (by Corgi) is my vote for the best television toy car ever made. Just look at that packaging, along with mini ‘gun firing’ figures of Napoleon and Illya and an Alexander Waverly (their boss) lenticular ring that flickers between images of UNCLE’s two best men. Swipe for detail of the box and the ring with both images.

Monday Memories: The Wizard of Oz was so popular that from 1967-1968 ABC ran ‘Off to See the Wizard’, a weekly anthology series where animated characters from The Wizard of Oz would introduce feature films, unsuccessful pilots or other programs much like the format of The Wonderful World of Disney. Along with Hal Holbrook as narrator the cast included Mel Blanc (as the Cowardly Lion), Daws Butler (as both the Scarecrow and the Wizard of Oz), Don Messick (as Toto and the Tin Man) and June Foray (as Dorothy Gale and the Wicked Witch of the West). A real TV oddity...

Spider-Man Sunday: Before Tom Holland, or Andrew Garfield, or Tobey Maguire - there was Nicholas Hammond, the television Amazing Spider-Man from 1977-79.

Spider-Man Sunday: with Spider-Man going up against his arch-enemy Stegron the Dinosaur Man! What? You don’t think Stegron is that big a deal? Well how about we colour him green and pretend he’s like the Lizard or Godzilla or something? Come on! Stegron’s never looked better than on the front of this bag... Look at the size of him!

Spider-Man Sunday: When people argue that Spider-Man has the second best rogue’s gallery I don’t think they’re including Power Records’ “The Mad Hatter of Manhattan!” a villain who dresses up like an assortment of historical heroes who wore hats including Robin Hood, D’Artagnan, Paul Revere and Captain Kidd. Why all the hats? To conceal the metal skull-cap that gives him the super strength and increased speed he needs to pull off bank robberies and jewel heists. Still not sure why he needs to wear whole costumes though...

Super Mario Saturday: Oh Super Mario Bros The Movie, why can’t I quit you? Is it Bob Hoskins as an Italian plumber? Or Dennis Hopper as a dinosaur?

Fantastic Voyage Friday: Richard Fleischer’s classic 1966 film about a submarine crew who are shrunk to microscopic size to venture into the body of an injured scientist and repair the damage to his brain.

Fantastic Voyage Friday: Filmation’s Fantastic Voyage cartoon was a spin off of the classic 1966 film and always opened with the following narration: “Headquarters: CMDF--Combined Miniature Defense Force. Project: Fantastic Voyage. Process: Miniaturization. Authority: Top Secret, highest clearance. Team: Jonathan Kidd, Commander. Guru, master of mysterious powers. Erica Lane, doctor, biologist. Busby Birdwell, scientist, inventor, builder of the Voyager. Mission: In their miniaturized form, to combat the unseen, unsuspected enemies of freedom. Time limit: Twelve hours.” All of the CMDF appear on this game box - swipe for additional images of the team in action on the game board.

Fantastic Voyage Friday: Filmation’s Fantastic Voyage cartoon may have only run for 17 episodes (September 14, 1968 – January 4, 1969) but the C.M.D.F. (Combined Miniature Defense Force) - a secret United States government organization that possessed the ability to reduce people to microscopic size - also appeared in two issues of their own comic book. Ok, so it’s a short run, but that’s kind of in keeping with the theme isn’t it?

Friday Foes: Raider Rath was lieutenant to the evil General Lucas Plague, leader of ‘the Raiders’, a mercenary group who wanted to rule the planet with the help of unstable radioactive element Phaeta Seven. This element could only be found on a new continent deep in the South Pacific frequently beset by a range of highly dangerous weather conditions and environmental hazards. It is in this ‘High Frontier’ that the Raiders are locked in battle with the Sky Commanders!

Wednesday Warriors: Pimp Daddy Destro (not his real name) briefly entered the world in 1997, part of an ill-advised attempt to give Destro a new paint scheme that began as a joke, was briefly greenlit, then just as quickly was recalled, with only a 100 or so allegedly making it to the packaging stage and toy store shelves.

Wednesday Warriors: ‘Illusion is the ultimate weapon.’ Spectrum was name-checked in the song and used a lot more by Matt Trakker in all of his appearances - but it was one of his other masks, Ultra Flash, that regularly appeared (somewhat modified) in the MASK logo (1986, Cesar Masks) #toyboxing #mask #mobilearmoredstrikekommand #venom #milesmayhem #matttrakker #spectrummask #vipermask #kenner #transformers #saturdaymorningcartoons #cartoon #cartoons #animation #masks #vintagemasks #vintagecartoons #vintagetoys #vintage

SciFi Weekend: A for Andromeda is a classic 1961 BBC science fiction serial and the first starring vehicle for actress Julie Christie. Sadly, the BBC treated this serial with the same respect it treated all of their seminal science fiction (Dr Who anyone?) meaning only one complete episode survives. Thankfully reconstructions and this novelisation keep the story alive - leading to remakes and a 1962 sequel (1962, Souvenir) #toyboxing #souvenirpress #aforandromeda #bbc #uksf #classicscifi #sftv #juliechristie #fredhoyle #johnelliott #vintagetv #vintagebooks #vintagetoys #scifriday #moonbaseoblimon8

SciFi Weekend: HG Wells’ Martian Tripods are brilliantly re-imagined as tools of the alien Masters in John Christopher’s Tripods trilogy, first appearing in 1967 and later adapted as an incomplete (and ponderously slow) BBC/Seven Network (Australia) TV series in 1984. #toyboxing #scifriday #tripod #tripods #thetripods #tripodstrilogy #cityofgoldandlead #johnchristopher #bbc #bbcscifi #vintage #vintagetv #vintagetoys #hgwells #waroftheworlds #themasters #moonbaseoblimon8
SciFi Weekend: V debuted as a 200 minute miniseries (adapted here along with follow-up The Final Battle). The ‘V’ refers to both the alien ‘Visitors’ and ‘Victory’ against them. Filming was briefly halted when the original Robin Maxwell, actress Dominique Dunne (from Poltergeist and daughter of author Dominick Dunne) was murdered; Blair Tefkin subsequently took on the role.

TV 📺 Tuesday... kind of.

TV 📺 Tuesday: Every 70s Detective had a gimmick. Cannon’s was that he was fat. He also had the dulcet tones of William Conrad (the actor who portrayed him) and could subdue crooks with a karate chop or well-timed thrust of his large abdomen. What a guy. Swipe for the blurb of this 1975 tie-in paperback. He ran (no, not literally) for 122 episodes plus the series two-hour pilot (September 14, 1971 – March 3, 1976) and the television film, The Return of Frank Cannon (November 1, 1980) #toyboxing #cannon #williamconrad #tvdetective #tvdetectiveshows #tvdetectives #tieinbooks #classictv #cannontvseries #vintage #vintagetv #vintagebooks #vintagetoys #jakeandthefatman #frankcannon
TV 📺 Tuesday: “Did I do that?” Steven Quincy Urkel (Jaleel White) was meant to be a one-off character on sitcom Family Matters. Instead the archetypal nerd became a sensation and the protagonist of the series, launching merchandise, the Urkel Dance, numerous catchphrases and crossover appearances in everything from Full House to Step by Step. Given that he was recently name dropped in Season Three of Fuller House it’s also possible that the Urkel may rise again... time to polish up on those Urkel dance moves: "If you want to do the Steve Urkel dance, All you have to do is hitch up your pants, Bend your knees, and stick out your pelvis; (I'm telling you, baby, it's better than Elvis!)" #toyboxing #familymatters #fullhouse #fullerhouse #steveurkel #urkel #urkeldoll #sitcoms #sitcom #classicsitcom #urkeldance #classictvcharacters #vintage #vintagetv #tvtoys #vintagetoys

If his voice sounds familiar, that’s because he was performed by Kevin Clash (who also performed Elmo). Baby Sinclair was his legal name - though he was also briefly known as “Aaah Aagh I'm Dying You Idiot” when the then-Chief Elder keeled over during his official christening...
