Forgotten Friday: 14 November 2014. At the end of the original Gi Joe run, Hasbro tried to stay current with some often ill -received concepts. The Adventure Team and reignited life into the Gi Joe line after the Vietnam War had slowed the sales of the military versions of Joe. Joe became a Jungle Explorer , a Desert Survivalist, a Treasure Hunter, and had many run ins with often undersized vicious animals!

The Mysterious Cities Of Gold #forgottenFriday #cartoons #vintage

A few weeks ago, we highlighted old cartoons that we forgot about. It got me thinking about different cartoons from when I was kid, and I kept seeing this Golden Eagle in my head. For weeks, I couldn’t figure out what cartoon it was.   Then… google…..   Golden Spaceship Aztec…  Those were the magic words that found it! They even had a video game!!   This is what it was about: The year is 1532. Esteban, a young boy, is told that he was saved by Mendoza, a navigator…

Forgotten Friday: Forgotten About Friday, #GiJoe, #RealAmericanHero, #AdventureTeam, #hasbro

This week’s Forgotten Friday we are focusing on and acknowledging HASBRO’s big finger to the toy that made them what they are today, GI JOE. This year marks the 50th, yes 50th anniversary of America’s Favorite Movable Fighting Man and in honor of this tremendous occasion Hasbro deemed it appropriate to all but forget that Joe ever existed. It was bad enough that they chose to only make a few sets of the 3 3/4 figures with a special tag on the box stating 50th anniversary, but just recently Hasbro…
