I recognize one of the girls from the Chatty Cathy commercials (I need to get a life)

For a moment there, I thought this was based on the movie "Swoon". That would be interesting.

I love how the "dud" is still a very good looking guy, he's just dressed a bit poorly. Hee!

I wonder if someone well known sung the theme. It sounds familiar.

The big mystery to me is why anyone would want to play this game.

Between http://www.boingboing.net/2010/08/19/gone-but-not-forgott.html and http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/38765629/ns/world_news-americas/ I've had a really hard time knowing to expect from that word today. Love that video, though. Those guys look like more fun than the girls in the commercial.

I remember playing this game as a kid! Somehow, I'd always get the dud. :P

Do you remember how the game worked? I'm rather curious how the mystery date guy changes at the door.

I keep wanting to buy the reproduction of Mystery Date, but $30 is a lot for me right now. But I did a Google, and found this site: http://www.feelingretro.com/toys/Games/mystery-date.php

It answers your question about the picture change. The door knob somehow grabs a picture.

Also OT: is that an Animal Crossing avatar? Where did you get it, it's so cute.

Thanks for the site!

And yeah, it's Animal Crossing. Got it from urbsaeterna.
