Episode details

Welcome to our first After These Messages episode! In these episodes, we watch and discuss commercials from the past, often related to the movies we watched, or chosen by one of us or our guest. This time we’re in for a wild ride with some of Christa Carmen’s favorite childhood toys, Teddy Ruxpin and Puppy Surprise.
