Woolworth always had such great candy and costumes during Halloween. You see the awesome Darth Vader and Boba Fett costumes. Well I had the one they didn’t show. The very lame C3P0. If you thought the a prissy golden robot was sad, you should see a kid wearing a vinyl C3PO costume, begging for candy. Nothing sadder.
So if you lived in NJ between 1978-1981 I was that sorry looking kid in the ratty C3P0 costume that visited your house 4 times Trick or Treating. Oh and yes, I was the C3P0 who later that night stole your pumpkin and threw it into the Hackensack River. Whoppers are not a good treat! Seriously.
I know you want more commercial joy. Here is a second Woolworth commercial. Check out the Halloween record at the end, “Sounds to Make You Shiver”.
Here is a sample from “Sounds to Make You Shiver”. Shall we go then?
