Talking 80's Toys

What toy designer or executive thought Snoopy sounded like this?

"Ha! I kill me!"

I like how completely mesmerized these kids are by the Teddy Ruxpin. Like little cavemen gathering around the first fire.

I think this is something that needs to be revised and brought back.

When I was in college, there was this toy shop that was closing up and selling off all their inventory, including a shload of toys they couldn't sell over the years they were open. I must've bought like a couple of these Pee Wee dolls and two huge garbage bags full of other things, including several original Bart Simpson toys from the first season for like 20 or 30 bucks. If I kept them all in their original packages, I'm sure I would've made a nice profit today. However, being the idealist that I was back then I gave them all to Toys for Tots. Apparently I wasn't a follower of Ayn Rand back then.

Ok. Not an 80s toy, but it might as well have been considering it's kind of a cross between Alf and the Simpsons tv shows.
