Six Million Dollar Man Bionic Grip And Ass Kicking.

The only things wrong with this six million dollar man commercial back in the day are:

- The bionic grip was a total rip off of the Kung Fu Grip.
- The addresses of the two kids were never made available so I could kick their asses.

Either way - enjoy:

So, I didn't really get how the bionic eye thing worked. What part of the Bionic Man's face had a hole in it?

Wings said...

The back of his head had the hole where you looked through his eye. Was cool, when I was kid.

Thanks for posting the ad, very sweet memory!

Well, apparently the GI Joe Kung Fu grip was a ripoff of a British action figure called Action Man.

Haha, no such thing as an original idea.

I love the cheesy old ads too....did you see that the Six Million Dollar Man is now doing a commercial for a hearing aid????

LiLu said...

"Bionic"... I wish I'd thought to name one of the kittens that!

Dr Zibbs said...

Lilu - why don't you just give your current cat to the SPCA then get a new one and call it Bionic?

These kids always seem to have elaborate sets on which to play their games. These kids had a radio tower that fell! I never even had a toy radio, forget a fallen tower.

That grip looks eerily familiar.

No wonder when I masturbate I go:

da nana nana nanaaaaaa

(Bionic man sound effect...just roll with it)

Dr Zibbs said...

Higgimonster - you never even had a radio? Jesus.

Fancy Schmancy said...

Lmao @ Moog.

Yeah, as a girl, I knew your silly boy toys were crap. That bionic grip could barely hold a popsicle stick!

My Wonder Woman underoos were much cooler!

I was just talking about that doll last night!
My brother had that one - and I had the Bionic Woman doll. I broke her leg cracking it over my brother's head. She sucked.

Dominica said...

I use to have the Bionic woman doll and the hole was in her ear ...
She didn't have a grip whatsoever !
Luckily, can you imagine those dolls having it off and she would use her firm grip on his crown jewels ??
Ouch !

Tamara said...

The dolls were before my time, but I loved watching old reruns of the show on TV in my teens. Except that it was a bit of an overkill in the end... bionic man, bionic woman, bionic dog... all with the same friggin irritating sound effects to demonstrate when characters were using their machine bits.

Dr Zibbs said...

Tamara - I heard that if the show wasn't canceled there was going to be a bionic llamma.

...I know. Ridicuolus.

I had one of those. Remember the creepy "skin" on the leg that you could roll up to reveal the "bionic" pieces of the leg? I lost the piece so it looked like his leg had a chunk of muscle missing under the skin.

Remember the joke about why GI Joe had Kung Fu grip? (Because Barbie has plastic boobies).
