TRIC-TRAC This was a motorised car/truck that came with curved pieces of road that you used to change direction with.There was something similar which used cards and you could punch out holes to make the vehicle do different things. The card was inserted into the body of the truck (i think) JOHNNY SEVEN This was a large rifle/machine gun that did seven things eg grenade launcher fired plastic bullets. very rare to see one. Also do you remember the bazzooka which you pumped up and it fired ping pong balls? BOOGIE ON, CHAD X

Tric-Trac (or Trik-Trak) was by Ideal Toys. I had gotten one for Christmas in 1966. The car was powered by a C-cell battery. This was discontinued in 1969. From the Saturday morning cartoon vault: TV commercial for the Johnny Seven toy gun (A-La James Bond, Jr.) by Topper Toys. This aired on "Tennessee Tuxedo" over CBS (9/18/65). This was a popular toy for two years.

More of the Johnny Seven line of toys from the Saturday cartoon vault: A Super Spy briefcase which doubled as a camera. It really took pictures, using 8mm film. Commercial for this, part of a TV block for Topper. Second ad for Suzie Cute dolls with Louis Armstrong. This aired on "Tennessee Tuxedo" over CBS (4/24/65).

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault: TV commercial for Trik Trak by Transogram, not Ideal. Original set came with nine track pieces, some cardboard scenery and the car. This aired on a rerun of "Top Cat" over NBC (12/4/65). If you recall, Transogram's logo was of a one-eyed man forming a T and wore a crown.

From Transogram, the Daredevil Trik Trak set. The car is an upgrade from the original, being gear-driven which promised to extend battery life. Along with normal track pieces, a rotating one was there, plus several obstacles for the car to ram through such as the wall of (plastic) logs, a plastic house and several jump-off ramps. The Saturday morning cartoon vault has this TV commercial aired on "Super President" over NBC (10/7/67).
