Atari 7800 spotted on TV show

Recommended Posts

I was watching reruns of Home Improvement season one and noticed that the Taylor's were Atari 7800 owners! Here are some pictures of the said unit on the show! It is the episode where Tim gets a new home stereo!

Well, it certainly had more power than a VCS!

Also not 1..but 2 copies of F-19 Stealth Fighter on the shelf above it! Then I think the purplish boxes above those is two copies of Gunship from Microprose as well. The top yellow box is another Microprose game but not sure which one.. F-15 strike Eagle maybe?

I wonder what the serial number was, and if it's in a dumpster or landfill or if it was sold online... or even if Tim sat on it, who wouldn't pay money for that!

Or a VCR!  They missed out on a joke by having a VCR just to the left of a VCS...  either way, the 7800 rules and that's what counts. :D

"We need a video game console for set dressing!"

 

"How about this NES?"

 

"That beigey-gray block-shaped thing? That'll look too out of place in the Tool Man's entertainment center! What do you have that's like - black and brushed aluminum - maybe kinda wedge-shaped?"
