If you thought that Sea Monkeys, candy cigarettes, and that creepy H.R. Pufnstuf were things of the past, think again. Thanks to the internet, you can enjoy those guilty pleasures that you thought went the way of your Little Lotto comic books. Check out these sites for some retro entertainment:
Sea Monkeys Yes, folks there is now a sea monkey website. The makers of sea monkeys no longer boast that “They’re so eager to please, they can even be trained,” but sea monkeys still have the three-pronged heads that we know and love. To visit or order sea monkeys, go to the official website at http://www.sea-monkey.com/.
Ancient Chinese Secret, huh! We all remember the classic television commercials, such as the Mean Joe Green Coca Cola commercial. Of course we do, there was only one other station to turn to during an ad, plus we didn’t have remotes then. To watch your favorite commercial classics, visit Retro Cafe–it might make you want to rush out and squeeze the Charmin.
Necco Wafers…Yum Remember the candy we had growing up? You can still get it all at Hometown Favorites Nostalgic Candy Store. After you fill up on Wax Lips, Necco Wafers, and Pixy Stix, you can step outside and enjoy a candy cigarette, because, believe it or not, they still sell those.
Who’s Your Friend When Things Get Rough? H.R. Pufnstuf, that’s who. You can watch episodes of all your favorite shows, such Adam12, The Archies, and I Dream of Jeannie. It’s all on Hulu and it’s free–so go ahead and spend the rest of the afternoon catching up on all the episodes you might have missed. Your boss won’t mind. http://www.hulu.com
