Lost to Time: The Super Sack System Unearthed at Last!

The Super Sack System (198X)

When I was a kid I used to draw ads for games and systems, such was my desire to go into video game marketing. Well, as I was cleaning out some stuff recently I happened upon this little print ad for one of gaming’s best kept secrets; a never-released console that would’ve been the first to feature an impossible 74-bit graphics, packed four wireless controllers (infrared, of course) and came with Talespin! That’s Disney’s Talespin people! And not that horrible TurboGrafx-16 game… this was a really good one! It’s Talespin for God’s sake!! I don’t know what the other thousands of games were that The Super Sack System could play but I probably drew up several of them as well. Click it to do stuff at Flickr if you’d like.

  • If I were you, I would sue Sega… they took your logo and slapped it on the Dreamcast. And TaleSpin! I loved TaleSpin! I would buy two Super Sack Systesm!

    74-bits… that rock!

    Second thought, that thing wouldn't sell. Some kid would trip and fall on it and impale himself and die… you want that kid's blood on your hands Shawn!

  • Ditto on the sega lawsuit.

    Sidenote – the only thing I remember, as an adult, about talespin was a brief exchange in one episode:

    “Fire at will!”
    (shooting breaks out in the plane)
    “No, do not fire at Will; he is my first mate. Fire at the Sea Duck!”

    • I can hear Don Carnáge in my head saying that! One of my favorites is a joke about Annette Funicello and that makes me ooooold!
