GI Joe

GI Joe
Made by Hasbro 1963-1976
“GI Joe fights for freedom whenever there’s trouble”

I got this for Christmas, 1973. I was so excited, I broke the muzzle off of the rifle trying to take it out of the box. My brother and I had about 5 G.I. Joe’s and countless accessories. Won’t ever forget that.

I remember the green jacket with the extra bullets on it. Though, even then I knew it wasn’t cool to have Joe kill a rare white tiger! My Joe kept him like an attack dog! Johnny West had no chance!

All the Gi Joe adventure team gear always came with and adventure team comic story about all the specific adventures. Good ol memories.

70s Toys & Games

Remember the old retro toys you used to play with? Did you bounce about on spacehoppers, play pong or ride around on your cool Chopper? Can you recall the heroes Twirling Tim and Hurricane Hank, and who they used to do battle with in the arena? Did you used to come home from school with bruised knuckles from trying to beat 100 clacks on your Klackers? Or was you the studious type carefully making lovely patterns with your Spirograph which, no matter how careful you were, always seemed to cut through the paper turning your masterpiece into a mess.
