Super-8 Movie Projectors on

The perfect toy for a nerdy kid, before VCRs came along. You could buy cartoons on 8mm/Super-8 film from K-Mart, or very short versions of movies such as "Action in the North Atlantic" or "War of the Worlds." Silent, black & white images. We had a Bell & Howell 8mm projector that I called the "Blowtorch 9000" because the bulb put out enough heat to earn its own solar system, and the film would instantly melt if it ever got jammed.
