Back in my day we didn't have 3D TVs and VR goggles- we had View-Masters and we liked it!

From METV
While most of the TV tie-in slides were screen captures from the series, the cartoon adaptations and fairy tales were created with elaborate miniature models. Peering into the View-Master was akin to a fantastic diorama, made with the craft and composition of stop-motion animation. At last, kids could see Charlie Brown, Donald Duck and Fred Flintstone in three dimensions. You might forget just how beautifully made these scenes were...

  1. These are very cool. I was always amazed at the 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea one. So much detail.

  2. I think I remember having that Winnie-the-Pooh one. Also Dumbo.
