"Ohio Art -- Etch-a-Sketch. You can draw a bird, you can draw a cat, pretty soon you can draw like that." I recall one of my friends spent ages drawing lines thicker and thicker on his Etch-a-Sketch, determined to scrape off enough of the material so he could see what was behind the screen. He did it, too. Etched away the whole darned screen!

I played with it online and all I can draw was scribbles. What a rip-off!!!

Etch-A-Sketch goes back to 1961. I got my first one in 1965. Etch-A Sketch can still be found today at Toys R Us. I think today's Ohio Arts is just a ghost company, not the original. I have a combo TV commercial: Etch-A-Sketch and Spudsy the Hot Potato game, from an episode of "Milton the Monster" cartoon show (1/15/66, ABC).
