Toy Series #7 "Rushmore +++"


Monster George, Monster George,
Stomped the British at Valley Forge...

Well, thanks to the noble chickelit we now have our missing Washington -- sort of! I didn't realize that Marx made different sizes for this figure set...so what one is mine? Curious...

Toy Series #7 "Rushmore -"

The "Rushmore" sessions, Day 1:

Tom: Teddy, Abe

Abe: S'up

TR: Hey! Where's George?

Abe: Yeah, is he late...again? Prima Donna!

Tom: George is in a pitch meeting with Warners on the West Coast, with Chickelit!

Abe: Is it that "Denture Movie" prequel again? No one wants a feature about the ancestor of an obscure Bond villain!

Tom: No, this is Bennie Arnold, Burn In Hell! Probably better with the tween demo anyway.

Abe: Who's playing him? Barry Bostwick? No powder needed for that wig! [raucous laughter]
TR: Hey, that's better than Mork from Orc! Was Russell Crowe busy that week or what?

Tom: or Nick Nolte

Abe: Uhhh... I didn't mind Raymond Massey...but I wouldn't try to kill Cary Grant!

JFK: Fellows, if we need a "Father of The Country", I'll be happy to, uh, fill in!
TR: Dude, give it up!

Toy Series #6

Bully! It's hard not to just automatically say, "Bully!" when talking about TR. A personal favorite of Fluffy Stuffin'. Possibly a Saint of The House of Fun as well? I'll do some more reading before I write him up!

Tom Jefferson is pleading his case...or perhaps selling his wares on the Home Shopping Channel!
And no, that is not his Jolson impression!

Toy Series #2

OK, so I've been nudged about the pics here for the Toy Series, but I couldn't figure out a way to get a clear pic of something so small....but the scanner can do it!

When I was a lad, I got a giant, detailed model of the Capitol Building. This thing was almost 4 feet long! I've lost that over time, but it did come with...a set of US Presidents! These are teeny; they're only 2 inches tall! I still have most of the set...minus some casualties (like Washington) This company was also going to make a White House model, but I don't think they ever did...

I post John Adams today...Perhaps, if people are interested, I'll post a few more Prezs!

Well, here's the first of the many Toy pics that will be forthcoming...but, wait, we can't do it!

Here's a picture of George Washington instead...let's comment on the first President shall we?
