Before the magic of VCRs, kids would find themselves with toys that held the promise of watching cartoons and such on demand. I know that in today’s world — I have Hulu and Netflix sitting there ready at any time of day — the concept of a toy designed just to show films and images seems weird, but in the seventies the Cassette Movie Viewer from Kenner was a miraculous toy. Look, kids! You can watch The Flintstones, Bugs Bunny, Fat Albert, and more whenever you like!
Kenner kept the concept going, as shown in this 1975 ad for the Six Million Dollar Man Movie Viewer toy. New stickers, new cassette, and the toy is all new and ready to go!
