Christmas gift: Tandy Computer and COLOR monitor, bonus!

  1. I wouldn’t want to live in any other kind Retro Patrol! By the way I looove weird 80’s Christmas commercials. One of my favorite thing about my old Christmas special VHS tapes!

    I love those old computer and video game commercials too. The guy in this commercial looks like Jerry Houser who played one of the Brady Bunch girls’ husbands in one of those old tv shows.
