They’re All in My Wildlife Treasury!

“The duck-billed platypus has feet like a duck but is furry” is just one of many nifty animal facts gleaned by many from the millions of times this chestnut played on Nickelodeon in the mid-‘80s.

    (Enter funny quote from the “Venture Bros.” episode where they bring their Wildlife Treasury along on an adventure here.)

    Funny, the ducklike *feet* weren’t the first thing I noticed on the Platypus. Call me weird. And between this and the “stunning tiger poster” from Zoobooks, what was with all the tigers?

    I’m pretty sure I landed my wife with my ability to quote from memory the platypus line verbatim.

    I’m surprised my economical parents allowed me to get this. I remember being so excited by it for a while, then I lost interest. Hopefully they canceled the subscription!

    My family was pretty smart to not get me these when I pleaded for them. A few years later we picked up a huge set of them at a garage sale and I quickly lost interest in them after about 2 weeks.
