From Underdog to Jeannie to Gilligan, this toy show had the classic TV covered

This past weekend was a toy show double-header, and we sure love that. Saturday was one we have known and loved for a few years now, the show at the Royal Oak Farmer's Market. Then, on Sunday, we took in a new show up at Macomb Community College, one heavy on model cars that even featured a slot-car competition. Very cool, and thanks to Brian and Joe for their work on that one.

At the Royal Oak show, we saw lots of great stuff, so we just had to share ...

Had to love spotting this one! See the Terrific TV Toys episode on this author's childhood version of this doll.

Another marvelous Mego, just like Cher and Farrah!

This one is for you, Will! And it's a big box!!!

An original Jim Beam bottle like what they used to make the "I Dream of Jeannie" bottle -- a friend of ours snapped this one up.

Here's another one that has a Terrific TV Toys episode -- but can you spot the differences between that one and this one?

Can you believe that's a "Gilligan's Island" playset!? Ludicrous. We had never seen this treasure before.
