Hey…..just between you and me? I think there’s something funny about this change I got earlier
The Blank is a dick tracy character that was prominently featured in the 1990 Disney film “Dick Tracy”. The Character was made into an action figure by playmates toys. the figure was held back from its initial release date because The Blank’s removable mask spoiled the plot twist at the end of the movie where the blank’s identity was finally revealed. The figure sales declined, and instead of giving the toy a wide release playmates unloaded all of the figures that had been manufactured, about 3000, to a Canadian catolog. Only 3000 “Blanks” exist. It is one of the rarest and most sought after figures ever produced. Carded blanks often go for upwards of $1200. In essence this is an action figure that is worth more than my car. and as of yesterday I own one.
So Doctor Who may have turned 50 this past Saturday, but my favorite TV show of all time, Mystery Science Theater 3000, turns 25 this Sunday. It premiered on Thanksgiving day in 1988 (November 24) on KTMA-23, a local network station in Minneapolis, MN.
Push the button, Frank.
