Electric Company Magazine – 1980 Franken-cover

I always had a soft spot for Frankenstein.Unwillingly brought to life, then shunned for his very existence, Frankie never seemed appreciated for being a big green guy (it ain’t easy) who just wanted some friends. And maybe go for a swim.

That’s why seeing him on a candy-run is a real treat.

The fun-filled Electric Company magazine always had an impressive roster of popular characters, but for this seasonal issue they turned up the power by a few volts.

Better have some candy on hand when he comes knocking!

But the next day is just a reset switch away.

  1. That is beautiful, Atari Adventure Square! Thank you for sharing the cover of this issue of the Electric Company Magazine…if I would have seen this at the school library back in my youth I probably would have flipped the heck out with excitement. :)
