Creepy Crawlers!

Keeping on theme for Halloween, here is a great commercial from the mid 1960s for Creepy Crawlers! This toy consisted of a molded hotplate into which you poured the magic goop. Then you head out to the hospital; get your 2nd degree burns treated and when you return you have a fun plastic toy that you can use to scare the heck out of everyone in your family.

Sadly it is not easy to find the original oven, even on eBay, but you can relive the magic with a modern version of the Creepy Crawler Oven from JAKKS Pacific.

See you in the emergency room!
