Oreos! In!! Space!!!

Masters Of The Universe #1

This is one of my favorite types of ads from my childhood – one that includes some kind of game or activity rather than just telling you to buy something. Though I’m not really sure why this maze is set in outer space…

Fun (or not) behind-the-scenes CBA fact: I usually try to get my ads as straight as possible when scanning them, and then make minor corrections (if needed) with software before posting. Well, I had one hell of a time with this one, because LOOK AT THE BORDERS ON THIS THING! No matter how I did it, it still looked crooked… and then I realized that the borders of the ad itself were crooked (sigh).

I think one of my favorites here is “PET BABY RACCOONS” – partially because I originally read that as a command, telling kids to go out, find baby raccoons, and pet them! Though the “HYPNOTIZE WITH ANY T.V. SET” is pretty intriguing too…
