Marvin Glass made some badd-ass toys.

Also, if I'm not mistaken, Glass designed the first of those GIANT gag sunglasses. At a Frank Zappa concert I attended back in '75 or so, Napoleon Murphy Brock passed them out to the band members as he "shot" them all with a giant gag hypo. As Mr. Z donned the specs, he exclaimed, "Far F***ing out, man!" in an obvious parody of rock stars living in the fast lane.  C:)

I have been meaning to post this for a while, but was finally reminded when I happened in on my wife watching "The Brady Bunch" this evening.
As mentioned in the first post, in early episodes you can see King Zor is in the boy's room in the background. Sometimes in the toy box, other times proudly displayed on the dresser.
I imagine the Brady Bunch is currently playing on some other cable channels as well, but we only get it in the early evening on "INSP"...

King Zor was a favorite toy of my childhood. I always wondered how he knew what direction the shot came from when you hit his tail. He would growl and turn in that direction and fire a yellow ball (fireball) at you. Way ahead of its' time.  I also remember I had the King Zor board game which had 4 cavemen and a prehistoric game board. I don't remember how to play it or anything it was 50 years ago. Thanks for bringing back a good memory.

I asked for King Zor for Christmas.......got the King Zor game. It was a cool game, but a let-down from expecting the big Zor himself.  Mom later explained that the store (usually Sears) had been out of Zors, but not the games.  Mom......it's ok..........I got me 2 Zors now........Love, Buddy

i'd have to say King Zor was my favorite all-time Christmas present. Figure at 5 years old, the box was as big as me!
I seem to remember lining myself up to try to get hit by the yellow balls - the King's aim wasn't all what we were led to believe!

Still bereft of a King Zor, but otherwise strong, healthy and acerbic as ever!

 ;)

We all want to see more of both your toy hoard and the progress you've made on your new old house though. And what are you doing for Halloween and about the inevitable urchins that will be traipsing and thus trespassing across your front porch? Bear traps, scalding oil, bowls of Baby Ruth bars, potato chips and bubble gum? What's your strategy this year?

And did you see this thread?

Hi everyone! Flower! How's my girl! I just HAD to check in around Halloween! Expecting alittle over 100 trick-or-treaters this year! I bought a VERY creepy deadly clown mask that I have been told I cannot wear when handing out candy.....nuts! I put it on a mannequin head and stuck it in the front attic window....that'll teach em! Always something more to do on the house....spent all last Winter (and alittle of the Spring) fixing up the 6 rooms in the basement. That area now houses my boxed 50's and 60's toys, action figures, games, model kits and comics.....too much stuff, but I love it! I joined a vintage toy group and started showing some of my toy guns......got some feedback about advocating for mass shootings.....silly. Anyway, we'll stay in touch......anyone that wants to friend me on FB...I'm Bud Bortner....but watch out...for some reason I have two accounts...the only one I can access has me playing a bass guitar with an Afro....ha!
