Trailer, Quotes and musings on the Misty 1980 Holiday Special

‘Polaroid’ trailer
Why don’t people turn on the light? An evil Polaroid menaces people. Where does she get the film? There is a slide show and Mitch Pileggi. A screen attacks and there is an evil photograph. There is CGI fire and this looks STUPID.

Blue Raspberry laffy taffy - okay.
Lemon butter sauce - no.

Read the ‘Misty’ 1980 Holiday Special. It was 45p for 64 crap pages. ‘Night Train To Nowhere’ was dull. Did they change the artists and writers for the annuals and specials? Cos the art and stories in them suck. ‘The Green Children’ was a dull tale of the 12th century. ‘What A Catch’ was ridic. ‘In Black And White...’ was a silly tale of a camera. ‘The Call Through The Clouds’ was a terrible tale of a ghost plane. ‘Melody From The Past’ bored.

Best Line:
“All that waited for ‘em out there!”
