Ephemeral Ephemera

One thing I love about living in the Internet age is the fact that ephemera is now ephemeral. We used to lose our pop culture to the abyss of time but now nothing can be forgotten or erased.

Arguably my favorite cartoon from childhood, M.A.S.K. was kind of a cross between G.I. Joe and Transformers. I ended up with almost every single M.A.S.K. toy, although if I remember correctly, I never really got to watch the show all that often. It didn't really matter though, I generally made up my own story lines for the show as I sat in the basement crashing the cars together.

Here's the first and second episodes from 1985:

wow, talk about blast from the past. I think my brother had a few toys from this show, and it's not surprising since you two are about the same age.
