Give-A-Show Projector from Kenner (1973)

Kenner’s 1973 advertisement for the Give-A-Show Projector promoted new entertainment options for the toy’s 14th anniversary. Give-A-Show was first introduced in 1960, and it quickly became a fixture in Kenner’s toy line for over 20 years. It projected images from strips of seven 35 mm. slides. New shows released in 1973 included a Scooby Doo Set that featured 112 color slides of TV favorites such as Josie & The Pussycats, Archie, Bugs Bunny, and Fat Albert.

Remember the toys and games of years past through vintage advertising – for better and for worse!
