Vacation = Muppet Magazine!


By Shawn Robare

I think I’m officially off my yearly hiatus now, but this week I’ll be on vacation from the day job and hopefully hidden deep away from the outside world somewhere on Walt Disney World property.  But I didn’t want to leave the site with no updates for a week.  Therefore, I dug into my magazine archive to pull out one of my favorite issues of Muppet Magazine (the Fall 1984 issue with Mr. T as the main guest) so that I could share it with you all over the coming week or so.  So without further ado, and very slim commentary, I present Mr. T (with an awesome Animal T as well!)

The first thing I wanted to share today was an interior advertisement for the Go Bots that I thought was pretty darn cool.  So many of the Go Bots ads I’ve seen feature photos of the toys, but this one is covered in some very nostalgic artwork…

Last up is another advertisement, this time featuring the bulk (if not all) of the Ideal Alvin and the Chipmunks line of toys…

      

I’d love to have some of those minifigures now.  I wonder how much they’re fetching on ebay…

    PRG – I need to break out the rest… Belle Dee – I never ran across them back in the day, though I watched the cartoon religiously…

    Oh man! That’s the first time I think I’ve ever seen an ad for The Chipmunks toys. I STILL have the three Chipette mini figures in their little go-go outfits. And I remember the poseable ones now. I really wanted The Chipettes but could never find them.

    Enjoy your trip! We went last April and had an awesome time. I loved Muppet Magazine! I wish I still had my issues, or I’d post them in a heartbeat. Keep these coming when you get back!
