BIG FRANKIE

Recently, I picked up a few 1960s issues of SUPERMAN from eBay. This is the back cover of issue #175 (Februaury 1965)...a very cool ad for the Aurora BIG FRANKIE plastic model kit! My brother, Stephen, had this model kit when we were kids and I remember it well! Seeing this ad brought back a lot of fun memories. Click on the ad for a larger view!

THE THREE STOOGES

The two-disc set of THE THREE STOOGES Volume 3 1940-1942 was released today! I have the first two volumes and I highly recommend these sets! I'm waiting for Volume 3 to arrive from Amazon. Great classic comedy with MOE, LARRY and CURLY!
I thought you'd enjoy seeing my THREE STOOGES dolls. These were produced by JOHN K and SPUMCO back in 1996. MOE, LARRY and CURLY are about 24" tall each. The best piece of THREE STOOGES merchandise produced to date! Also...below is the front of a sell sheet for the SPUMCO STOOGES dolls...DELUXE TV THRILL MEN! Click on each image for a larger view!

WEIRDLY & GOBBY


If you haven't already, be sure to pick up your GRUESOMES figures from Funko! Here's WEIRDLY and GOBBY GRUESOME. The box for the figures features great GRUESOMES character art, which includes CREEPELLA GRUESOME and GOBBY's pet spider, SCHNEIDER. Perhaps Funko will do companion figures of CREEPELLA and SCHNEIDER. I hope so!

ADAM WEST ON DWTS?


This morning on Fox 11's GOOD DAY L.A. (a local morning TV News and Entertainment show here in Los Angeles), Entertainment reporter DOROTHY LUCEY reported that TV's BATMAN, ADAM WEST, may be a contestant on the upcoming season of DANCING WITH THE STARS. I wonder if WEST, who is now 80, will be dancing the Batusi?
