The Mad Scientist Monster Lab

Mad Scientist

Reading through a Mattel dealer brochure on OrangeSlime.com, I found this for the Mad Scientist toys, circa. 1987. I can’t recall the toy line at all, which is a shame as I think the Monster Lab, from the video below, looks incredible and is definitely something that I would have wanted as a young boy!

I did a little digging on the toys available and there were quite a lot that I would have enjoyed including the Eyeball Maker, Dissect-an-Alien and the Glowing Glob.

As well as the toys, two Mad Scientist cartoons were produced in 1988. Experiment in Error and Night of the Living House are 15 minutes a piece and quite fun, especially the theme tune which is unmistakeably 80’s.

Too Gross!
