Did a British Set of Land of the Giants
3-D Bubble Gum Cards Exist? (1968)

Land of the Giants Bubble Gum Box

Land of the Giants Bubble Gum Wrapper

In 1968, A & B C company in Britain released a set of Land of the Giants bubble gum cards. U.S. collector's might believe both the box and wrapper indicated the cards had some kind of 3-D images. The U.S. version does not have the 3-D printed on the box or wrappers. Did the British box include actual 3-D cards? The answer is no! The mystery was solved when this question was posed online and someone explained the 3d is actually a British denomination marker. The British threepence (3d) coin, usually known as a threepence or threepenny bit. The U.S. box had 5 cents as the price for a packet.

Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3-D (1982)

Friday the 13th Part 3 3-D Jason reaches through the theatre screen.

Friday the 13th Part III 3-D
1982 / 35mm / Dir. Steve Miner / 95 minutes

While not necessarily the most original installment in the series, Friday the 13th Part III is arguably the most influential slasher sequel of all time due to its introduction of the iconic hockey mask that would soon become a horror movie hallmark. Moreover, Friday the 13th Part III features some of the most entertaining 3-D gags in cinema history, including an impressive assortment of deadly weapons protruding from the screen. The story is nothing new: unstoppable killer Jason Voorhees, apparently recovered from his injuries at the end of the last film, finds a new slew of torpid teens to terrorize. Rarely screened in its original 3-D format, Friday the 13th Part III is an entertaining departure from the predictability of the average slasher movie.

P'gosh artwork

Doug P'Gosh has been creating creatures and more at the drawing board, easel, and yes, even the computer, professionally, for over 20 years. The art on his website features his personal work along with designs he's created for burlesque troops, sideshow acts, tattoos, gig posters, bands, derby girls and gallery shows. You'll also see a lot of work from his job as the chief designer for Retro-a-go-go.com. From t-shirts designs to Bettie Page to taking out the trash, he does it all!

Doug's website is devoted to his work with the sub-cultures and the hobbies that he loves: all things tiki, classic midnight monster movies, tattoo art, hot rods, pin-ups, vintage men's magazines, lurid advertising, vintage sci-fi, pulp mags, rockabilly, 50's Mad Magazines and EC comics, cartoon surrealism, burlesque, 60's television, movies of the 30's-50's, tin toy robots, side shows, men's fraternal organizations, old model kit boxes, wacky packages, vintage movie posters, 60's arcade games, chalkware carnival prizes and much, much more.

The classic Universal monsters such as Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man and our 3-D favorite, The Creature from the Black Lagoon have made their way into many of Doug's paintings. Several of them are available as high quality prints available for sale on his stie.

Doug's been drawing and painting ever since he could hold a paint brush. His skills were appreciated and honed in high school and sharpened to a fine blade at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Lately he spends a lot of time working for the company his wife started: Retro-a-go-go.com. Doug's fingerprints are all over the art and design of the company- from the design of the website, to the advertising, to the design of the products, the illustration and graphic art needed for the products themselves, to creating new illustrations of Bettie Page from very old, worn out, photographs.

Doug spends his free time working on paintings for gallery exhibits, tattoo designs, band and show posters, sculpture and anything else that pays in cold hard cash. He also takes trade. If you have an early 50's Pontiac Chieftain that you're interested in bartering, he'll be right over with his art supplies.

As for his preferred techniques, Doug loves to work with acrylic, gouache, colored pencil and airbrush. Occasionally he'll push around oil paints and sculpt in clay too. He's often works with wood and foam core to fabricate large dimensional sculptures or cool signs for bands and other performers.

When he's not in his studio, Doug can be found plastered in the massive tiki bar that he built in his basement or hanging out at an antique show with his wife Kirsten, looking for more cool crap to fill his house with.

Doug's artwork is available to purchase online at pgosh.com.

Ultraman View-Master Reels (1982)

Ultraman View-Master blister pack art.

Godzilla appeared in a cartoon version on his own set of View-Master® reels but unfortunately never in 3-D images taken on the set of the famous Toho film series. The closest thing to the giant Japanese monsters to make it to a set of View-Master® reels was the Tokyo Broadcasting Company TV series Ultraman. Japanese toy manufacturer TOMY and the View-Master® International Group teamed up to sell View-Master® reels for the Japanese market.

The Ultraman series used various monster costumes, known as kaiju in Japan. The principals were played by famous stunt actor Haruo Nakajima, who operated the original Godzilla costume. His apprentice, Bin "Satoshi" Furuya, was the first actor in the Ultraman role. Nakajima had a martial arts background, but the earlier episodes used a wrestling-style fight choreography. Later episodes evolved into more complex fighting.

Often costumes of famous monsters like Godzilla and Baragon would be recycled and altered, sometimes with nothing more than spray paint and often while the actor was still inside. Nakajima quipped once that the staggering gate of some of the monsters he portrayed was due less to his acting than to the fumes he had to endure. Some of the costumes could not be shown fully as his feet would then have been exposed, a necessary allowance to maintain balance in the often cumbersome outfits. Also, the expense of repairing the scale cities and landscapes used for battle scenes required economy of movement and meticulous planning.

Editor's Note: It is not known if the adapted Godzilla costume is among the monsters featured on the Ultraman reels.
