WEARING UNDEROOS IS FUN
AND YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM MORE THAN ONE

A few days ago I was with my son at Toys R Us, and was amazed to see Underoos had been brought back.  The Superman Underoos, though different in packaging, were almost identical to the pair I got when I was a kid.  Popular in the early 80s, these underwear/t-shirt sets were a great way to play around as your favorite superhero before bedtime.  

The packaging was great, too, as this gallery shows, as they were shrink-wrapped in record album sized flats, showing the character imagining what the clothing looked like.  I always thought it was funny that Lord Darth Vader would just stand there thinking about children's underwear.  How funny would it have been if they had actually got Michael Jackson packaging?

One of the more disturbing outfits was the C3P0 set (pictured left).  With few girls versions made save Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, and a bizarrely questionable Daisy Duke (with a horse, no less!), the annoying gold plated droid was relegated to a girls only design.  In retrospect, the bizarre bikini style getup with exposed belly circuits make some poor girl look like she's headed for the Flesh Fair from the A.I. movie.

And for budding furries, you could wear Chewbacca and Ewok Underoos (who were not known for wearing underwear, or much else for that matter).  The Flintstone set is pretty bizarre for that same reason, as ol' Fred was pretty fond of going commando, too.

The best thing about Underoos was the song, which went a little something like this

"Wearing Underoos is fun.
And you can choose from more than on
There's Spider-Man and The Flash
(something something rhymes with Flash)
(something something something)
Something super-NEW in underwear
YEAH!"

It's too bad they didn't make them for adults.  I'll have to settle for a wife-beater and stretched out underwear for my custom Homer Simpson set.  If you come across any Underoos pictures I've left out, drop me a line at rberry@retrocrush.comm and I'd be glad to put them up.

KILL BILL VOLUME TWO

Even a casual observer recognizes that Tarantino is a master of recycling retro pop culture. From his soundtracks full of cool gems you never thought much about the first time around, to fun inside references and outright swipes from cult films, he knows how to please his fans. The second volume of Kill Bill is no exception, chock full of cool cars, classic Kung Fu, and perhaps one of the greatest innovations of the 70s...the kickass female action hero. Uma Thurman is an unlikely and seemingly gawky successor to the all too small group of badass babes started by Pam Grier, but she just works right. And in this tale of revenge that rivals the most outrageous exploitation films of decades past, she does not disappoint.

JESSICA RABBIT

A couple of years ago, we had a giant poll for the 50 Sexiest Cartoon Characters Of All Time. The runaway favorite was Jessica Rabbit by a landslide (easily beating out the 2nd and 3rd place finishers Betty Rubble and Daphne from Scooby Doo).  From her out of this earth gravity defying proportions, to her beyond sexy Kathleen Turner supplied voice, Jessica is a woman that puts many men in a dilemma.  First you have to admit that you're turned on by a toon, then you have to face the awful truth that she's a furry, engaging in relations with a rabbit, and a retarded one at that.  At least the "real" photos of Heidi Klum dressed as Jessica can legitimize your sick obsession to at least a small degree.  And if you look in the bottom row of our gallery, you can see frames from the original print in which it's clear that Jessica isn't wearing any underwear, making it the most notorious hidden nudity in a Disney film since the notorious (and gut churning) Cruella Deville crotch shot from 101 Dalmatians.
