  • Seems crazy they didn't give it a mains supply, too. Maybe safety concerns? Kids clumsily unplugging things with wet hands / reaching round and touching half-unplugged contacts, etc?

  • It requires batteries and a hand crank? 70s efficiency. You need a flux capacitor and a way way back in time machine to find a bulb. Or upgrade to an LED.

  • I think as long as the replacement bulb isn't LED, it should work better; LED bulbs really just aren't good for that sort of thing, since the white light they produce isn't made up of a full range of colors. (Though maybe you can find an LED designed specifically for this problem, but I don't think they make those in that size)

  • I remember I had a similar toy that I got from McDonald’s in Germany in around 2000. It was definitely Disney branded although I can’t remember the animation now and must’ve only been about 5-10 seconds of film. I loved that thing as you could see every still and play it backwards. Funny how 20-30 years later the same technology formed part of a kid’s meal.

  • There's a "restoration" of the Star Wars cassettes in "Rescuing Star Wars," a joke video about trying to find an original copy of Star Wars: It's probably the highest-quality transfer of these things you're likely to see, and I find it hilarious. I actually watched it just yesterday, which is probably why this video was in my recommendations today...

  • The "1 minute" edit of Alien is just a loop of the scene at the end with Ripley in her mini knickers. You can tell by the look on the kid's face on the front of the box!

  • I´ve got similar when I was 10! It was made by Fisher-Price in México, and the name was Telecine Magico. It projected a picture into the wall or the small monitor. The cartridges were costly, and they broke down after some time. No way to fix them cause they were sealed. This is a different version. Much better than the one I had. Thank you for your videos. I enjoy them so much.

  • I remember something like this in the cafeteria in a grocery store. It was bigger and had a built in seat and you would put money in it to make it play for a few seconds. It was as hard to see as the image of the Corgi but it was so special. Mostly because we only drove to the "big" city where et was a few times a year. And it always pissed me off that when i was given money to make it play a movie some freeloader kids always joined without asking for permission. Those were the times.
