4490ArticleHoju Koolander@Vaporman87 Wow, now that I think about it, I can totally see the Teddy Ruxpin resemblance, especially the eyes on those costume. @jkatz At least a hardbound book that collects the artwork, because that stuff is beautiful.Kids VHS Tapes of the 80s and 90sJul 03, 2018View
4489ArticleVaporman87A perfect segway into Season 2 of the Netflix show. I suppose if you can get away with either re-purposing or "cloning" characters and make the audience happy, then there is no reason to NOT do it. By now though, the whole "Mini" or "Little" fad, with smaller versions of a star, has kind of played itself out.G.L.O.W. Two-TimersJun 30, 2018View
4488ArticleVaporman87@jkatz: Interesting tidbit concerning that version of Pooh (from the show Welcome To Pooh Corner) - the company that developed the animatronics for the suits that actors wore belonged to Ken Forsse, the creator of Teddy Ruxpin. His work paved the way for Disney to start using such animatronic features in the suits of some "cast members" playing Mickey, Minnie, and others. Man, some of these boxes are just amazing. I always loved the oddly sized/assembled VHS cases and boxes. They were incredible.Kids VHS Tapes of the 80s and 90sJun 30, 2018View
4486ArticlejkatzThat's awesome packaging for the GI Joe/Transformers tapes. Definitely would be cool if they re-released these somehow...maybe in a special commerative vhs edition, even. Live Action Winnie the Pooh looks creepy. Love the retro TV, too!Kids VHS Tapes of the 80s and 90sJun 29, 2018View
4485ArticlejkatzI'm starting to think that the small local theme parks are better than the household name ones. Anybody can go with their family to Disney World, and hundreds of kids probably get lost there every day. But searching for your little brother at Lake Compounce? That makes for a much more interesting story, in my opinion. PS: You have a lovely family! And that hat makes you look like a PA on the new Star Wars movies.Theme Parks: Adventures in New EnglandJun 23, 2018View
4484ArticlemickyarberLove all these stories. Reminds me a lot of my childhood.Theme Parks: Adventures in New EnglandJun 20, 2018View
4483ArticleSuperman@Vaporman - Yes, these trips were very special. I had a lot of fun reminiscing about them while writing this article. @NLogan - Riding an elephant was a lot of fun. I totally consider myself fortunate to have experienced it. @pikachulover - It's so cool that you also had the opportunity to ride an elephant. I remember thinking it was so much higher from the ground compared to a horse, too. @Hoju - Yes, these trips really were something special. I totally recommend Wisconsin Dells. I hear that Wax World of the Stars and the American UFO Sci-Fi Museum are no longer around, but I believe the other things I wrote about are still around. Plus, I'm sure there are newer attractions that weren't there during my visit and things that were around when I went there that I just didn't get to see.My Childhood Family VacationsJun 20, 2018View
4482ArticleSupermanYou're like me in that neither of us ever had a Disney vacation growing up, but it sounds like you, again like me, had a lot of fun anyways with the things you did get to do. This was an enjoyable read.Theme Parks: Adventures in New EnglandJun 20, 2018View
4481ArticleSupermanCount me as another who would probably dig the 50's Prime Time Café. It sounds like something right up my alley.Disney Days: My Trips to Walt Disney WorldJun 20, 2018View
4480ArticlejkatzNever say die! This part of Oregon looks beautiful. I really need to visit it some day. Our Goonies AdventureJun 19, 2018View
