I'm late to post this (for the nine of you that read this), but here is Part Four in an ongoing, really long series about just a percentage of the insanity that is THE SUPER DICTIONARY:
Make wrinkles between your eyes...Really???!! I like how the Women's Lib-Checker missed the implication that otherwise, nothing is "going on in her head."  (And it was the 70's!) Also, speaking of her head, exactly how is that headband placed?  The more I look at it, the more it looks like it belongs to someone else.
Remember that time that The Penguin was chased by a giraffe? Nope, I don't either.  See how they foreshortened the giraffe's body, but forgot to decrease the size of his neck as they went along?  Yep, I did too. 
Here, the hastily-invented Conjura reads to her friend, Billy Dee Williams.  He can't understand it, but the joke is on him anyhow: the book is totally blank.
Now, wait a second...we have a plague of green slime, and Superman is just going to leave and think about it?  Any context as to where he could even be?  A manhole? A space station? Three Mile Island?  Has Superman already forgotten what algae is? (See part one if you have.)
Sometimes I take photos of these things, and forget why, but I think what got to me here was the definition of goblins as "bad fairies." And can't fairies do magic too?
Superbaby's mother (who is never named in the SUPER DICTIONARY for some reason) would say a lot more than "goodness" to see this.....uh...thing that looks like the latest thing Jimmy Olsen has turned himself into.
This panel is SUPER DICTIONARY-art-layout-gold.  Just stare at it a while; you don't even have to read the "definition" of the word....unless you want to imagine that the grotesque, giant Green Lantern head is getting goosed.  And, is he squatting in the marsh, or what?  Is there a footnote somewhere about how we know that geese are actually "stronger" than ducks? Did they have a contest to determine this??
I seriously want to see animated GIF's of that Green Lantern head rising up onto my desktop, and then disappearing again....that would be wonderful:
Oh well, but then again, if the Internets have taught me one thing, it's that you can't force a Meme.  Let's move on; we've time for one more:
Here, baggy-shorts-1940's Wonder Woman has broken into the home of some people who look like 1950's clipart, although she seems quite close to them...take a look at the man, who can do nothing but smile, even though tears are forming as he strains to overcome the programming of his alien masters....everything must be assimilated...
 That's better!!



Marvel Comics Super-Heroes Card Game (Milton Bradley, 1978)

Marvel was smart with its licensing in the early years, and by the time of my childhood, there was a boom in super-hero items and collectibles--everything from school supplies to dishes to clothes (only upstaged by, well, NOW).  This was wise, because through simple items, like this card game for example, they solidified their position in the minds of many children, and created some fond memories in the process.
Card back of all cards (except Instructions)
This card game is, for all practical purposes, "Old Maid," except with Doctor Doom substituted for the Old Maid (there's a thought).  The oversized cards are approximately 3.5 x 5.25", and there are 40 cards in the set:  19 pairs of Super-Hero cards, one Doctor Doom, and one two-sided Instruction card:
As you could guess, the object is to make matching pairs, and not be left holding the Doctor Doom card.  (Like that's a bad thing!)  
And........Kirby dots!
The Super-Hero cards are typical stock art for 1978, and also have the normal logos used for their names...and they are great.  Take a look:
Really, the only problems in the artwork are:  The Thing has no "whites of his eyes," and, two, The Scarlet Witch is, well, purple!



If it's Friday, then that must mean (GASP) another visit to THE SUPER DICTIONARY!
In this entry, we get to enjoy the lame character of El Dragon (that's Spanish for the dragon, kiddies; congratulations, you are now cosmopolitan!) being consumed by a raging fire; an image which gives me solace in times of need.  By the way, I kept thinking he reminded me of somebody, and it finally struck me that he looks similar to a Marvel character called Constrictor:
Or, if you like, El Constrictor.
You know, I'm just going to leave this here and step away.  It's far too easy to make juvenile jokes about Batman and Robin being a couple,and after all these years, aren't we past all that now? I mean, aren't these jokes wearing sort of thi--
Oh...huh.  Let's move on.
Okay, here's another of those panels that begs for context.  What in the sweet name of sanity is going on here?  Where are their ropes even connected? Why are there exclamation points inside the giant eyes?
Excuse me, Zatanna, uh, Conjura?  It IS your fault if you forget you are MAGIC and can just fix the car that way.
Hopefully Batman is referring to a rousing game of Uno?
Once again, Atom is hanging around with bees...this time he has cheesed off an entire swarm.  I don't  think that it matters if you are the size of an action figure, when there are fifty bees after you...unless they are Bee Girls, of course.
My gosh, can you imagine trying to do something with Batgirl over your shoulder? Will you just shut up, Batgirl, before I knock the ever-loving batcrap outta you?! Nevermind that all hooker-Catwoman (I think that's her?) is trying to do is refold a (blank?) road map.
Once again, we end with the fuel of nightmares.  The disembodied head in the (crystal?) ball is the artwork version of one of those William S. Burroughs stories, where he cut up newspapers, threw them in the air, and randomly glued them together to see what happened.  Is this supposed to be the "man" that told Green Arrow the good and bad things that would happen to him? Is the "bad" thing that this horrific head in a ball will be stuck on his shoulder?! Green Arrow gives the reader that look of "you know how it is," but no, we don't.
Once again, the Super Dictionary takes the insane way out of what would otherwise be a simple definition...did fortune cookies ever occur to anyone??!!
I'm telling you people; there's no other explanation:  drugs were involved.



Gatchaman Box Figure Collection (Yujin, 2002)

Several years ago, I somehow ran into these little figures, probably searching Ebay for Lego, and I pounced on them.  They are the size of Lego Minifigures, but closer in design to being Kubrick ripoffs, if you have ever seen any of those.
There is precious little information about these online.  I did find out from my research that these were sold individually in Gashapon machines, because of course they were; it just makes sense.  Then apparently Yujin collected them as a box set, which is still very similar to the way candy toys are often packaged in Japan (mine was sealed and came with no candy). 
Box Front
The only site I could find that gave them a "review," so to speak, was extremely negative, saying they were cheap and not worth it.  I disagree, primarily because Gatchaman/Battle of the Planets toys of any significance are few and far between.  There is stuff out there, but precious little that's honestly done very well.  I got all excited when Diamond Toys announced Battle of the Planets action figures in 2002, but they really weren't awesome (or very articulated), and I didn't end up buying them.  Then along came a minifigure-sized set that included the whole gang, with accessories, for a reasonable price (at the time of course)!  Now, admittedly, the engineering isn't Lego quality, and neither is the plastic.  I don't think they would stand up to very active play, but I've kept them on constant display since I first got them.
Box Back:  Note a hint of Engrish, as the enemy "Galactor" is referred to as GALACTER.  Also, the bizarre TA TA TA is indeed strange, but I think refers to the Gatchaman theme song, which begins with three lines of what I'VE always thought was "Da da da"!
I couldn't find any of these box sets currently on Ebay, so I'm not sure if they have gotten rare, or stupidly-expensive, over the years.  I'd recommend them as a way to have the whole team (whether you call them Gatchaman or G-Force) in one, conveniently-sized place.
