    I have a pin that says "Pac-Man is coming to JC Penney." I guess it's from the same ad campaign. The thing is as old as I am!

    The Terror of Tiny Town, a 30's western with an all midget cast. Apparently in the public domain.

    Two new episode of Nick Knacks!

    First, we have Video Comics, a show on Nickelodeon just sorta reads comic books to you. It's a cheap filler show, but a good opportunity to explore Nickelodeon's mob roots. No, really.


    Then, for the Halloween season, we jump ahead to 1986 to talk about Marc Summers' Mystery Magical Special, a spooky-themed magic show meant to get kids invested in that guy hosting Double Dare.

    I shared this video before, but even the Atari 2600 Alien game looks and sounds like a smoother Pac-Man port:

    given all the Pacman talk, I thought I'd share this Joel video about MSX bootlegs, which features a Pacman clone with an... interesting title:

    Why is there a motion comic for Mad Love? BTAS itself did an animated adaption that was almost exactly the same as what's in the panels.

    Cloak and Dagger - Like The Wizard, but much better because it features Atari. ;)

    Article musing on the possible origin of the Polybus urban legend. Claims it's probably a combination of a few other real stories, of gamers having epileptic seizures, police stalking arcades looking for drug deals, etc.

    I'd suggest that the Tempest-like game play might've been inspired by the rare (and trippy) Cube Quest laser disk game:

    Not a video of all the launch titles, but an early commercial with some game play footage.







    Note the square controller buttons.



    Another, better, early commercial, with subtitles, listing a few games:







    I'm so excited for Mahjong and Go! ;)
