Talking Alarm Clock!


Man, I remember seeing these advertised in the comics back in the 1970s, and wanting one soooo badly...

...and as an adult, I can't help but think that it really just looks goofy!


  1. Ha, I've got one of these!
    Found it at a jumble sale in the mid '80s.

    It's got a teeny tiny vinyl record inside it that says something like:
    "Time to get up and out of bed!"
    "Right again, Robin!"
    And you have the sound of the Batmobile introducing and ending the sound clip.

    Mine doesn't work any more.
    The record is only powered by an elastic band and a tiny motor, both of which packed up after I'd showed it off to one friend too many who wanted to hear it work.
    Oh well.
    Mind you, it's probably easily fixed...

  2. Wow, thanks for that information! I wondered what it sounded like!
