1977 Big Foot Game:



Val mentioned this one, although I don't remember it. However, around '75 - '78, Big Foot was a huge topic. Seems like everyone was reporting a Big Foot sighting. "In Search Of" and other SciFi TV shows regularly mentioned him. To this day I'm not quite sure what Big Foot was supposed to be...

I'm with you. I have NO memory of this game. But I DO remember the fascination with Big Foot in the 70s. =)

I have a vague memory of it. I know I played the JAWS game, but maybe this one, I just saw the ads for. Bigfoot was big doings then, though, you are right about that.

And you do look like Bobby Brady in that pic. ;)

Bigfoot was an icon in the Seventies. We were convinced that he lived in a trailer right outside our grade school. Why Bigfoot would live in a trailer home didn't matter. He was there. We were convinced of it.

UFOs, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster were all huge to us in the Seventies. Why I have no idea...

The Jaws game was the bomb! I got it for Christmas one year (I guess around '75-'76) and my two sisters and I played it constantly! I even took it into the tub with me.

I remember seeing "Jaws" in a drive-in theater. I spent most of the time cowering in the back seat. I didn't fully appreciate what a brilliant film it was until I saw it on TV years later.
