Here's a video on Youtube of Arnold Greenberg, CEO of Coleco from the 1960s to 1980s.

 

He spends a lot of time talking about the Cabbage Patch Kids.  

 

They start talking about the ADAM at 15:20.

That was great! Mr. Greenberg seems to have a sharp recollection of much of Coleco’s history. I would love to hear him expound upon their video game and computer marketing days.

Thanks for highlighting this.  Very cool to see an interview of Arnold.  What's sad though is that the producers of the show didn't put enough effort into the still photos they display during the show with many of them being of very low quality.  Worse is that they show an image of a Coleco Chameleon stand during the discussion around the time of the ColecoVision and the ADAM (@ 15:00).  Bad mistake to make.

 

Other than that, I just wish there had been much more discussion around the ColecoVision and the ADAM instead of the Cabbage Patch Kids.  Can't have everything I suppose  :)
