This past weekend at our monthly SMF party James Kaminski ( ALIEN ASYLUM ) brought a big bag of epicness with him to help out with the blog's Vintage Print Advertisements feature . . . That bag was filled with nothing but "Disney Adventures" magazines from the early 90s!
I remember having a good amount of these books back in the day. I always loved the 'cartoon character hanging out with the famous person' covers that most of them featured. For this first all "Disney Adventures" edition of V.P.A I grabbed 5 random issues. I scanned the covers along with a few ads from each for your enjoyment :)
Pinocchio and Jacko from June 1993
One wanted to be a Real Boy and the other just wanted to have a Real Boy.
Disney's Always Making Dreams Come True!
Mack and Mickey 1993
By 1994 I doubt Disney would return Mack's calls :|
This cover is one of the best ones :)
Beast and The Beast!
I think by this point Luke Perry was just starting his 10th year as a H.S. Junior . . .
I have to ask, for what reason would Sonic ever need a car?
Great show and great game, miss that series!
"Toys" was one of the most horrible movies I have ever seen (when I was a kid) I can't see this game being much better.
Wasn't much of a Movie either!
I have a theory that character could have gotten a game back in the 90s. Crash Test Dummies is my Exhibit A.
Penguin, Nobody Wins When They Play a Tiger Game . . . Nobody!
Actually, this one don't look that bad
Ok, so these ads were all from a Back 2 School Fashion Section . . .
X 2: The Merchandising . . .
Be sure to put your finest White Man Can't Jump gear on next time you head on out to Sizzler!
Are those mom jeans the boy(?) on the left is wearing?
I think they got Nirvana confused with the Pauly Shore classic "Encino Man".
That's it for now. I'll have another one up in a few days! And James thanks again for all these books. I have been having a blast paging through them!
