Who wouldn’t want the Alligator game?

Recently I was listening to Doug McCoy’s podcast about the 1980 movie “Alligator”. This led me to seek out the movie which can be watched on YouTube in its entirety.


It had been several years since I saw the movie and so I enjoyed seeing it again.If you like cheesy, 70s and 80s horror movies, you will like it too. After watching it I looked up a few facts online and was surprised to see that a toy was released that was based on the movie. A search of Ebay turned up this awesome looking game. The object was to spin the wheel and then either put or take items from the alligator’s jaws before it would snap shut.




I love retro toys, television, movies and just about anything from the 70s and 80s.I frequent flea markets, thrift shops, garage sales and auctions hoping to nab my next pop culture trophy.
