Okay, here's a REALLY strange one, and I don't recall us ever talking about it on the board before. (I could be wrong!)

This crazy book came out during the show's run and wave of ancillary merchandise. To say that it's bizarre doesn't begin to scrape the tip of the iceberg!

If you want to check this out, you can view and/or download (??!!) the entire PDF here...

I warn you in advance...there are no words for this. :o

Wow, that was bad. I scrolled through it in about 2 minutes and that was 2 minutes more than I should have. This was clearly not authorized by anyone involved with our show.

I doubt it, or else he would have sought free agency for Burt to get out of his horrible contract. ;)

I've flipped through this years ago and it left me, well.....speechless. Forrest Gump: And that's all I have to say about that.

This has definitely reared it's head on the board over the years, like many of us, you may have repressed that memory :D

An interesting time-capsule as far as "cash-in" culture goes. There's no wonder brand licensing departments are so militant regarding certain franchises in modern Hollywood.

Thanks for sharing this, never seen it before.

I hope any other weirdo things like this are posted in the future regardless of quality. Speaking of, that was terrible, even by quick cash-in standards. What a mess. Ugly and unfunny.

Yup I agree, I'm glad it was posted regardless of how terrible it is.

Yes, it was a load of rubbish, but I saw some new photos (any photo you've not seen is new!) :x

Yeah, but it's got Batman on the cover so we MUST collect it! :-)
