The New Scooby Doo Movies Guest Starring Batman And Robin

I watched The New Scooby Doo Movies guest starring Batman and Robin on Boomerang earlier this evening. It was great to see the Dynamic Duo teaming up with the Mystery, Inc. gang. I remember originally watching it in 1972 and have only watched it a few times since then. The Joker and the Penguin were the two guest villains. You can watch the episode in four parts starting here.

Marvel Heroes Jumbo Coloring & Activity Book

I was at the local Dollar General yesterday morning and picked up the Marvel Heroes Jumbo Coloring & Activity Book published by Bendon from 2009. As you can tell by the front cover, Wolverine is the predominate character featured followed by Spider-Man, Iron Man and the Hulk. Captain America and Thor gets a few pages but Mr. Fantastic seem to appear more than the Thing. I was surprised to see a few coloring pages featuring Iron Fist. A few of the villains get their own pages especially Black Cat, Rhino and the Lizard. The activity part is mostly in the form of puzzles, word searches and games. The back cover features a door hanger featuring the Marvel Heroes that one can cut out and use.

Women Wednesday: Just Imagine Wonder Woman

Today's woman is from Just Imagine Stan Lee With Jim Lee Creating Wonder Woman (August 2001) from DC Comics. Maria Mendoza becomes Wonder Woman after finding an Incan Sun God's staff of gold. Steve Trevor is an archeologist that helps Maria to find her destiny but he meets an unkind fate. I would have liked to see this series continue but it was just a one shot special.

Thrift Store Find: Amazing Spider-Man Giant Activity Pad

I found nothing on today's search through the local thrift stores. However, I am posting about the 2006 Spider-Man Giant Activity Pad that I found last week. The 7 3/4" x 5 1/4" fun booklet was originally sold at Dollar General for a dollar but I picked it up for thirty cents. The pad has coloring pages plus games and mazes. Here are just a small sample since there are about sixty-five pages featuring Spider-Man and most of his foes like the Black Cat, Green Goblin, Lizard and Venom:

The only pages of the Spider-Man Giant Activity Pad that have been marked on are two puzzle pages towards the back that was scribbled on heavily with a blue ink pen.
