Toys Were Way More Dangerous Back in the ’70s and ’80s
Last month, W.A.T.C.H. released their Ten Worst Toys for 2020 list. But we can remember a time when toys were way, WAY worse.
What we’re referring to is what so many of you made reference to when we shared this year’s list: the legendary Saturday Night Live “Consumer Probe” skit from back in the ’70s, where Dan Aykroyd plays the shady Irwin Mainway, president of Mainway Toys. Watch him ham it up for incredulous host Candice Bergen below. And yeah, maybe don’t put Johnny Switchblade: Adventure Punk in your kid’s stocking this year.
