Childhood Memories

While I do have a few “toys” in my collection, I wouldn’t say that I collect them. There are so many these days, it would just be way to expensive for me to keep up, and still afford all the books and movies I want to still get. But seeing these two figures that were recently announced, I may have to add them to my collection.

Nothing reminds me of my childhood and the beginnings of my life-long love of the monsters and the horror genre than watching Saturday morning programs like Groovie Ghoulies, Monster Squad, and a mixture of reruns of The Addams Family and The Munsters, besides the late night shows like The Night Stalker, Ghost Story / Circle of Fear, and The Night Gallery. And for obvious reasons, my cereal of choice back then was, of course, Frankenberry. Every now and then I’d throw some Boo Berry into the mix, but Frankenberry was always the go-to. So to have one of those figures sitting on my bookshelf is another easy way to bring back some fond childhood memories in an instance.

After all, isn’t that why we collect what we do? To have that little gateway into our past and the pleasures that it brings?

  1. Believe it or not, I have never eaten a bowl of any of the “monster” cereals. It was hard enough to convince my mom to let me watch Saturday night creature features – there was no way she was going to let us eat “crap like that”! By the time I had moved out, I was watching every penny, so I was always going for the bargain basement cereal options. Then it feels like they went away for a while, back when I might have splurged on it. And then I kind of gave up on cereal altogether.

    I might just have to buy a box or two this October….

    • A few years ago, when they released some of these in the original box art, I did have to pick them up. Granted, the wife and son ate them because from what I remember, there is a bit of sugar in them…
