One of the nice things about the era you grew up in is that it’s all yours. I went through the over-glorified attic of my memories and came up with 10 dusty memories of childhood in the polyester wasteland:
- Wacky Packages. The lazy child’s form of graffiti. When they took our pens and paint away, we covered every available source of material with these creepy stickers.
- The Muppet Show. The Muppet Show was better than any so-called variety show. You got to see borscht belt comedians, top music acts and puppets
telling corny jokes all on TV that was beamed into your house for free.
- Burger Chef.
- Christmas Wish Books Which we started tagging up each mid-August
- The Six Million Dollar Man (Now worth $17.00 if you can find his parts at Radio Shack)
- Coleco Football
Nothing like afternoon reruns of a show featuring planes crashing into apartments to make men out of pre-schoolers.
- Mr. Pibb. Shown to cause only minor genetic mutation
- Wonderful World of Disney. It was a movie, a product placement, a chance to feature hot girls in bland, unrealistic situations.
- The Best Part of being born in the 70’s? The 80’s.
