It's just that Andy is so easy to miss.  Sometimes I bump into him because I don't even see him standing there.  I keep telling him to wear bright colored clothes or something.  Otherwise, he'll just continue to blend in with the scenery.

Like I told you privately Ray, that was unbelievable. I can't believe that you guys went through all that trouble, reproducing those boxes under the tree and again replicating how the cards would look hanging off the pegs all bunched up like that. I noticed Andy's name in there too. Was he in the documentary at some point that I missed or did he help with the production?

Thanks for posting this film Ray!  It's cool, and obviously a labor of love.

I think it speaks very well of Andy that he resisted the call of the mullet.  In an age when mullets ruled, one man stood alone.  A short-cropped Spartan amid the long-haired hordes.

Beautiful!  Thank you Ray!

That last scene really brought a gasp to my lips and a tear to my eye...to see them all together like that, hanging on pegs!
I HAD those Six Million Dollar Man figures...all of them!
And of course my A-HI monsters purchased from the Hollywood Wax Museum gift shop so long ago.

Did you recreate those packages for the Christmas morning sequence?  Wow...they looked authentic...right down to the backer cards...

Thanks Ray.  That was a real treat.

I'm glad you enjoyed the clips!  The Christmas boxes are props that I fabricated.  None of them are real.  The toy packages in the dime store are a different story.  I think almost all of them are real.

Just wanted to pop in and say that I feel lucky to own a copy of IN LOVE WITH TOYS. 

I bet Santa Claus has one, too. (Or is it his evil twin Satan Claws that owns a copy?)

How odd, and yet so cool! I wonder if Professor Griffin has checked out this video from the library? Hopefully not as I'm sure it would be a hard one to return. Isn't the good professor near San Antonio?
The Famous Monster of Mpls.  Sayer of the law.

He is from Austin, about an hour away from SA.

I somehow missed this thread when it was first posted.  Ray I'm loving your documentary!  Thanks for putting the clips on YouTube.
