the super stretch man you describe was actually called "stretch armstrong". he looked like a circus strongman with a ken head. he was made of thick rubbery latex filled with corn syrup. later versions replaced the syrup with tiny beads but concerns about both fillings killed the line. he also had an arch nemisis that looked like a lizard man but i can't remember his name.

I hope not . This was a gift left by Santa. It didn't take long after Christmas to stretch it to far and have the redish goo come out. Learned the limits with the first and was more careful with Stretch #2.

I had a Stretch Armstrong as a kid and I just thought this was the coolest toy ever! Sadly he got a hole and the red goop starting coming out and that was it but it was fun while it lasted.
