I’ve mentioned before that I’m a total sucker for retro 80’s toys, especially when they have any type of horror theme associated with them. Case in point: My Pet Monster! Oh sure, he wasn’t that scary looking in my opinion (minus the fangs) and the mostly purple face wasn’t helping the cause. He was still a monster though, and apparently had to be handcuffed because of his ill-tempered behavior.
According that commercial, My Pet Monster was indeed pretty scary when he wanted to be – but take off those handcuffs and he would help push you on a swing! So overall, not a bad guy at all. If you happen to still have one of these from 1986, you could be about $150 richer because that’s what they’re going for on Ebay. Here’s some news I didn’t know regarding My Pet Monster: It had it’s own short-lived cartoon that aired on ABC for one year. And as a special treat, here’s one of the episodes below titled ‘The Masked Muncher’. I’ll let you giggle on your own about that title…..
