Bad Ads: Sea Monkeys

Really what kid didn't have God like visions of creating life and a society of these little monkey like creatures when they saw them in the back of the comic books. Sure we all know what they actually contained, but this is what we all saw when we read the ad.

Like everyone, I was hugely disappointed that the Sea Monkeys in my nifty little leaky plastic aquarium were NOT humanoid alien royalty with no clothes. And that it took days to tell whether they were actually dead or not. Sigh.

At least my X-Ray specs worked like a dream...

I once bought a 5 FOOT TALL MONSTER THAT TALKS and it killed my whole family, which left me a wealthy orphan, improving my lot considerably.

I owe it all to a comic book ad!
