Tee-Tee Power Measures Up To The Challenge (Comic Ads #37)
|Comic Ads are more than just the mountain of Hostess Ads we know and love. Over the years, many a company has used one page comic ads to shill their products in the pages of comic books! So I thought I'd do a list series that showcases those ads, and shows you what issues I've found them in. To me, these are as much a part of comics history as any superhero, and I love 'em for the nostalgia they bring. I hope they do the same for you. Enjoy.|
First off, whoever created this toy didn't try very hard with the name. "Tee-Tee Power?" That's the daredevil rider's name? Well, if you look at the top panel, in the bottom right hand corner, you'll see that it's short for "Turbo Tower or Power," aka TTP. I've got to be honest, I have lots of jokes here, but they're all vulgar. If you're old enough to have hit puberty, are paying attention to some of the words in bold, and start with the fact that "tee-tee" is sometimes kiddie-talk for a certain private part, well, you'll see where my dirty lil mind went with this.
Instead of going there though, redirect your mind to Bank Robbery In Progress!, where the ad showcased the Trouble Patrol- same toy, different vehicles. I'm sure you've already noticed the Spider-Man version of this at the right, and you can see a Bionic Woman version below, along with a whole slew of pictures related to the TTP. I hope you enjoy it.
