In my younger days I was fortunate enough to own the Slime Monster Game by Mattel, though I know there is no way my Grandparents thought this was a good idea because I can remember some grumbling from my Grandmother as she worked feverishly to clean a place where I let the wonderful goop known as Slime dry out. For more about Mattel’s Slime make sure to check out the article The Doc wrote a few years back.
Check out this vintage 1977 TV commercial for the game and stay for other vintage ads including one for the Ground Pati Restaurant!

A big thanks to BoardGameGeek for the image of the Slime Monster you see up top.
