Read about the passing of Jan Svochak over at Cartoon Brew, and I immediately thought about this game my neighbors across the street had when I was a kid:
What you’d do is make a little pineapple out of Play-Doh and move it around the board. I don’t remember the rules, but I do remember that transcendant moment when you could take your big plastic guy and say “How’d you like a nice Hawaiian Punch?!” and smash their pineapple!
God, how I coveted that game.
I’m sure parents came to loathe Punchie, but those commercials and that stupid game brought me a not insignificant amount of joy when I was a kid. Thanks Mr. Svochak.
