I dug this guy out of my mother's attic a little while ago, a Christmas present from 40 years back. Surprisingly enough, I put some batteries in and it fired right up. I could still remember how to program it: "Forward 4, Right 45, Hold 1, Fire Cannons 3, Reverse 1..." Hell, the electronic sounds are better than what's in my Paragon, and that came out a couple of years later.

BTW, my cat was not amused.

I came across this while cleaning out the attic of my childhood home. Didn't Lucile Ball do the Pivot Pool commercials?

Apparently she advertised for several Milton Bradley games. I found this on eBay. My box does not have her image, but I vaguely remembered the commercials. Now that I see the golf game, I think I may have had or played that, too.

I had the Cox gas powered van and the P51 Mustang. You were supposed to run them tethered, but yeah, I let mine loose, too. They did not survive my childhood, so I had to find pix on the 'net.

Does anyone remember Jumping Jacks? We used to go down to the dock and light them, wait a second, and throw them into the water. They’d ignite just before going under. Then they would shoot out of the water and bounce several times off of the water’s surface. You never knew if they were going to come right back at you. It was a rush!
