I hope this isn't a redundant topic...but as I can't remember the name of it, I can't search it.

Anyway, it was some food company's attempt to be like the Capt'n Crunch of TV Dinners...they had treasure maps on them, lots of cartoons.

I have asked a few people my age as well as my siblings, but nobody remembers it from the '70s.

I hope this isn't like those dancing bears that took my marmalade...This product existed...at least for awhile.

no...it's not Koogle

Arrrgh

I remember what you are talking about, but goddamn if I can find it out there on the web either. I tried.

I think I used to bug my mom to buy that pirate dinner for me all the time, but she never did. I thought she was lame for doing that back then, but in retrospect she was just trying to keep the junk away from me.

I remember these too. It was a Libbyland TV Dinner. These things came with a flavor packet to be added to milk. Usually something that didn't work very well (for me at least) like blueberry or grape.

i remember too! tiny hot dogs in buns, mini burgers, big chicken nugget type thing.. and the Magic Milk stuff ~ we got these rarely.

i particularly loved TV dinners because the food was in its own compartment. except when the vegggies migrated elsewhere. disgusting when peas touched chocolate pudding. ew.

Libbyland...that's it...pirate's picnic, and sundown supper. I'm not insane.

It does appear as though some band is using that name, which makes it a pain to get good pictures.

Going thru the websites was quite a trip. Jolly Ollie Orange?

Oh yeah.

Oh god, worst tv dinners ever! And that's saying a lot. Why do you people constantly dredge up the horrible memories I've spent a lifetime escaping? All I remember about them is some kinda pudding or hash-brown-like substance that had a nasty-ass skin on it that made it nearly inedible. Again, as a 10 year old, that's saying alot! And if you have any repect for human life at all (especially your own) you never ate the hardened, burned crust around the edges of the individual food compartments.

Quick! Someone bring up another horrible childhood culinary memory so I can forget this one again! Mmmm, Space-Food-Sticks!

I used to be crazy about Rosarito Mexican TV Dinners (especialy those little tacos). I think they swiped that mystery meat from the Jack in the Box Soylent Green factory...YUMMMMMM.

I nearly wept when I saw that image. I seriously can;t stop smiling. I use to TOTALLY love those! The food was horrible, but the packaging was the greatest.

this stuff makes me remember Wacky Packages. Remember these?

I still have my original collection, although it's not worth much.

Oh man, those were my favorite! I still read every aluminum foil label as "Wrinkled Wrap Aluminum Fool". Yes, I'm simple. I sure could go for a SPace Food Stick right now....

I used to love the Pirate and Cowboy TV dinners, not for the taste but for the little pirate and cowboy characters stamped in the foil tray compartments....inticement to get to the bottom!

For some reason Dangergirl's post of Wacky Packages, I thought were these other sticker/gum combos...really exagerated cartoon monsters driving cars.

Not sure if they were done by Ed Roth or just kinda knocked off.

Now that I ponder the wacky packages, I remember them too. What mirth to be so surrounded by advertisment that child targeted humor is based on it's parody.
