    Mark I think Hugo was a Kenner toy, definitely one of a kind. Little bald puppet dude in a blue tunic that came with hundreds of 'disguises' like wigs, scars, eyebrows etc. Used to wake up in the middle of the night with that little creeper fecker on the dresser and have nightmares.

    'Football' reminded me of these instant classics! The first version and second were all over the school yard . Thinking about it..has to be considered close to the very 1st widely popular hand-held device for kids? Now they just have phones to zone out on . EDIT...apparently now you can leave the 's' on https for vid to show up. Awesome.

    Ha kids today must look back at those things and think wtf is that.

    Cool ad with Terry Bradshaw. Didn’t know how he was till I watched Better Late Than Never a couple of years ago. Top bloke and very funny.

    Really wish I’d kept some of my old games.

    I let all my Star Wars collection go in 1992 for 25 quid just to fund a night out as a student

    About 30 figures, most still with guns the millennium falcon and Slave 1.......

    Absolute class little video this for those who were teenagers in the 80's. Remember so many of these as arcade games, first up at the traveling fair (or at Butlins) and then as Spectrum, Commodore or Amiga Games later. Stick with it to the end as there are some howlers missing but included as 'honorable mentions' ( The Original Mario Bros Arcade game ffs). No Star Wars cabinet either. Even the sound of some of the racers trigger those memories as if it were yesterday watching over someone's shoulder, waiting for a go.

    Outrun!

    I remember C & VG magazine giving a free cassette with the soundtrack to outrun on and I'd play it in the car when I first passed my test.

    Can people remember Farrah trousers at school? They were only wore by the cool kids.

    Ha! yes mate. Not being able to afford Farah's was not as bad as being bought a pair of Dunlops for Games/P.E or having to wear plimsolls.

    I remember those same kids had either Kickers or Pods to wear with them.

    Remember having to buy adidas two stripes trainers or panther (fake puma) football boots from Woolworths.

    I can remember my first Harrington Jacket and hassling my mum for a pair of 14 holer Docs like these



    and eventually ending up with a black pair that I had to put some of my paper round money toward. They took bloody ages to unlace though


    and then it was all about the hightop basketball boots like these (Reebok/Pony etc)








    when Electro and Breakdancing came into vogue
