Welcome to another entry in my 31 Days of Halloween! I have been meaning to do this post for some time now and since I found on YouTunbe mostly Halloween ads and in comics I found a Ghost Rider one, I thought what the heck? Let's do it now. For the longest time I have told people about 1-900 #'s targeting kids but believe it or not they never believed me well, now I have proof! LOL!
These ads from the 80s and 90s that I found on YouTube showcase a lot of different genres (oh they also did "naughty" 1-900's which are well known):
Even He-Man got greedy during this craze! (Note the voices, especially Orko!)
So there is my little artice about the old 1-900 #'s! Be here tomorrow for more spoktacular articles!
This was a thriving business in the 80s and early 90s. I don't remember ever calling any of them, either. Too much of a goody-good here.ReplyDelete
I am to and even if they weren't blocked I would have called them myself.Delete
My English was too poor at the time. And I always read those comic books a few years late, second handed.ReplyDelete
Yeah I can understand that.Delete
