When LCD screens were becoming popular I was able to get a Radius Color Pivot pretty cheaply.

Without the Nubus card it would only display in portrait mode. I got one a little later but it needed a different chip to display more than 256 colors.
That thing was heavy. I wish it didn't break.

Man, I can’t imagine rotating a CRT. The stand for that thing must have weighed more than the display!

I have a 24” ASUS ProArt monitor that does the flip super easy.
I'm sorry Dave...

I was never a big comic book reader as a kid. I'd see them in the barber shop (mid 70s), read a bit and didn't have much interest.

I did watch that show and found it really oddball, almost to the point of annoyance. Probably because I though Saturday mornings called for more Loony Tunes, Pink Panther, Puff'nstuff, etc.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

Compared to the massive consoles of the era, that actually was pretty slim. While they obviously look retro now, I have no doubt that those were impressive sets in the day.

But turtles need seat belts. All pets should be properly secured in a carrier and carriers should be belted into the seat.

In 1956 Elvis Presley got a polio vaccination on national TV. That one event was partly responsible for raising immunization levels in the United States from 0.6% to 80% in just 6 months!

The King vaccinated. Checkmate anti-vaxxers!
