Can you guys read these? Would it be better to upload them directly to the site? Dynamite, Number 30, TV 3588, December 1976. I scanned quite a bit more of this one as it had more that interests me. Besides The Donny and Marie Show, “Psssst… Pass it on” talks about what is trending in the States. High platform shoes are out and painter pants are in, as are skirts below the knee.
“Good News Bad News” has cool art work, and since it’s Christmas time, “The World’s Most Expe$ive Gifts,” which includes one of those super-cool race car beds that I REALLY REALLY wanted for $299, and an Elton John pinball machine for $13,500, which I think my Grandmother had in her country store. She didn’t buy it, I’m sure. That article is followed by “Buck the Gift Buying System!” If you look at that picture, there’s a John Travolta 45 rpm record. I heard one of his one time. It was awful. Shaun Cassidy was much better.
Then we have something called “The Dynmaite Duo.” The Dynamite Duo was a superhero series that ran through several issues. Great art work, in my uninformed opinion. There was another series called Magic Wanda. She signed her stuff “Love, peace and magic.” How 70s.
Jay J. Armes! With Colonel Sanders! Riding a tiger! There was toy of this private eye who lost his hands.
“The Silly Spirit of ’76” “Things We Don’t Need Any More Of: Bionic anythings, disaster movies, idiot jingles for everything from banks to burgers, Mr. Whipple, more ridiculous TV game shows, Monty Hall, Bicentennial Minutes, another Osmond brother, disco music…” Wait, 1976 and they were already tired of disco? Saturday Night Fever hadn’t even happened yet!
