Before we get on to the 1969 "Gold" Give-A-Show set (which is all Hanna-Barbera), here's a gallery of other toys like the Give-A-Show projector!
From Great Britain, here's Chad Valley's Bible Stories Give-A-Show set!
The Magnajector was another product similar to the Give-A-Show set... after we get through the 1969 set, I'll be featuring some Disney stuff from 1963 that was part of this line!
Here's a preview of coming attractions... the Talking Give-A-Show Projector! Bizarrely enough, these sets of slides with records was the exact same set that came out with the Talking Give-A-Show Projector itself! So far, I haven't turned up any additional sets for it.
Here's another "Coming Attraction" from 1975, the Bionic Woman set, which I recently acquired. Look for it to start appearing here after the Six Million Dollar Man set!
The Give-A-Show concept isn't dead, not by a long shot! It just isn't called a Give-A-Show Projector any more! Here's modern-day set featuring the Teletubbies!
And here's one for the Power Rangers! I don't think I'll be trying to add either of those sets to my collection... unless I get to the point where I'm running out of stuff in my collection to post here!
Lionel (the toy train people) also had their own projector out there... I have a bid in on one of these as I write this entry!
Here's another Chad Valley set that wasn't available in the USA.
This Donald Duck set looks like it uses a film strip rather than slides on cardboard frames. I've been tempted to bid on one of these a few times!
Another Chad Valley set here... all Bugs Bunny, who didn't start appearing in Kenner's lineup until about 1970!
And the final item from this gallery... a much more recent Indiana Jones toy that is very similar to the Give-A-Show Projector!
A Fond Adieu...
