On this day in 1976, BBC One was showing the legendary cartoon that is Marine Boy.
All I can remember about Marine Boy was that he could breathe underwater, possibly with the aid of chewing gum and he had an electric boomerang.
Given that he lived underwater, I'm not sure how wise it was for him to be using electrical implements.
Then again, perhaps he didn't have an electric boomerang. Maybe I'm just imagining it or indulging in some sort of wishful thinking based on the fact that I think we'd all like to own an electric boomerang of our very own.
How people would tremble as they saw me gearing up to fling it at them.
Then again, that'd make me basically the old Hulk foe The Boomerang who, let's be honest, made Paste-Pot Pete look like Galactus.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in this week in 1976...
I assume the Iron Fist story is still his epic battle with Radion and their epic destruction of the Post Office Tower.
I remember my first ever visit to London, where we stood in some park or other (possibly Green Park) and the teacher pointed out the Post Office Tower and said it was the tallest building in Britain.
It did seem a bit rubbish that that was the tallest building in Britain. It barely seemed taller than the tallest buildings in Sheffield. It gave me a very negative image of our fabled land.
I do remember loving the Hulk tale in this and the next issue, especially Hulkie's confrontation with Black Bolt.
Argh! The brains are escaping, even though they look more like giant maggots.
Iron Fist is in England. Dracula is in America. It's like some sort of super-powered student exchange programme.
Politics comes to the Spider-World as the Disruptor shows us all how democracy should be done and Mary Jane reveals that she votes for candidates because they're dishy.
I'm assuming, from the bad guys' blue faces, that the Plunderer in this tale is not the one who was in the habit of causing trouble for Ka-Zar?
