Break out your TV toys

homer radioCheck out the picture on the right. It just looks like a plastic bust of Homer Simpson, but it's actually a radio. The eyeballs are the tuning and volume knobs, which I guess means that while listening to the radio Homer takes on the appearance of "incredibly brain damaged Homer" complete with wandering eyes. I also found this SpongeBob SquarePants shower radio, this Tweety Bird combination phone and clock radio on eBay, and this Garfield radio (did you know he's coming back to TV?) which is very similar to one my brother had when we were younger, except his was a clock radio and the alarm was Garfield's voice saying, "time to wake up, sleepy head." If you pressed his nose / snooze button, Garfield would say, "Nah, don't get up. Stay in bed, sleep longer."

Now I'm curious: does anyone out there have any unique promotional toys for old (or new) TV shows that stand out from the usual plastic crap you can find in large chain stores? Let loose in the comments, this is your chance to break out your awesome toys and make everyone else jealous. Yes, it's childish, but what's the point of having these collectibles if not to make other people jealous?

Hey, stop dissing Joey!

The show was just fine, you were led to expect something more because it came right out of the last season of Friends. Plus, why watch Joey talk to people you don't know when you can see Joey and people you do know for 2 hours every day in syndication.

Now, about toys, I have a classic Casper the Friendly Ghost plastic figurine from the 60s, but my prized posesssion is the Flintstones' Bam Bam stick that was mine when I was a kid that I still have, in fact it's on the bookcase next to me.

All my other TV toys are recent purchases.
