I have an amazing amount of fond memories with the Fisher Price line of Movie Viewers, both the handheld and the Movie Viewer Theater, which I personally think was the absolutely height of home entertainment in the 70s.
I talked a bit about my Christmas memories with both of them on “Intermission II” for the latest Saturday Frights podcast. Just in case you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing one of these beauties for yourself here is a 1973 commercial for the Movie Viewer toy. Is it me or is the announcer just a tad on the ominous side?

Here is a video of one of the Pink Panther shorts provided by astralislux YouTube channel.
A big thanks to the History’s Dumpster blog for the scan of that wonderful ad you see up top.
