StarscreamTheWaffle You know, I saw a severly damadged foam version of who I think was Slobulus at the Goodwill that I volunteer at. You get weird things at donation-based stores...

Mockery They don't yet, but they made it sound like Super Madballs (like Touchdown Terror) were in the works when I spoke with them.
Feb 8th, 2008 11:01 PM
r_phillip nice! my cousin had the original touchdown terror. it was awesome. i hope they still have it.
Feb 2nd, 2008 01:33 PM
JakeOfAllTrades I saw the "Gross Jokes" video as a kid. You aren't joking, it IS awful.

thecatillaccat I had Oculus Orbus. He dated my Princess Leia. Is that wrong?

Count Mek I'm pretty sure I had the eyeball one when I was a kiddie, but I never knew it was a madball or anything.
Great article man B-)

Dr. Decrepid thanks for your help.

Mockery I already stated in the article what places carry them. You should already be able to find them at Toys 'R' Us stores.

As for online places, Urban Outfitters is currently selling the standard Series 1 Madballs for extremely cheap - click here to see. (note: you have to use their little dropdown menu to select the ball you want, but they do have all 6 regular Madballs)

Dr. Decrepid What stores carry these and how much do they cost?
Jan 21st, 2008 12:37 AM
Hangie I remember when I was 4 some kid tryed to freak me out with a skull face and I picked it up and shot it right at his eye.
Jan 20th, 2008 11:00 PM
rizzo I gave all my old boxed up toys to my friends' kid, so I still get to play with oldschool Madballs to this day. Yay for me!
Jan 20th, 2008 06:54 PM
BurntToShreds That is awesome. Grotesquely awesomely awesome

10,000 Volt Ghost I remember the cartoon more than anything else except at my blockbuster they only had the pilot. I think they played "great balls of fire" every five minutes or so.

They're pretty much the same density as your average Nerf ball. The "SICK" series Madballs are a lot heavier though since they're made of rubber and filled with all sorts o' gunk.

Hehe thanks. It's scary to think that's the WTF Ball is still lurking out there somewhere isn't it?

Yeah, that ball is definitely the thickest of the bunch, but as you can see, it's well worth the extra squeezing effort to make those brains bubble out like that. Mmmm tasty!

Probably because multi-million dollar ad campaigns try to target people by speaking to them in a way that they think is "hip" - but it comes off as nothing but insincere instead. They're writing/talking about stuff because they have to... I'm simply doing it because it's what I love to do. Just like you guys, I'm a big fan of this kind o' stuff, so hopefully all this stuff I say is easy for you to relate to. At least more so than your average McDonald's ad campaign

Yeah, but they were nothing to write home about, believe me. Just look 'em up on Youtube and you'll see what I mean. American Greetings actually sent me a copy of the old Gross Jokes video on DVD for some laughs. And when I say "laughs" I mean "tears of agony". It's just one of those things that proves they didn't need to make extra stuff for the Madballs line back then... it was fine with just the balls and nothing more.

Yeah they all look way better than ever before, that's why I can't wait for them to release the 2nd series and hopefully some of those Super Madballs.

JediScum I never had any of the Madballs. I had Star wars figures for a couple years but they mysteriously disappeared.

The next day my parents had 3 cases of Night Train.
Jan 20th, 2008 02:22 AM
Autrach Sejanoz There was indeed a cartoon. I remember hiring them at the video store when I was a kid. My favourite one was the 'Gross Jokes' special (A collection of humorous skits, unlike the regular episodes).

Mystik Tomato Do want!
Jan 19th, 2008 09:10 AM
incognit000 I feel compelled to purchase!

My guess? You're made of pure awesome.

Purple Man My goodness - I remember these awesome beauties.

I used my ones in imaginary battles against my Sectaur toys. They kind of suited each other. Ah the golden days of youth.

Tetsu Deinonychus I LOVE THE MADBALLS!

Redesigned or not, I'm very glad they're back!

I just hope they get around to the "super" Madballs. I had "Touchdown Terror" as a kid (this was before my house burnt down) and would love a chance to get one again.
Jan 18th, 2008 10:15 PM
Masterfly-skull Man too bad i wasn't around to see those awesome glorious MADBALLS! now thanks to you Roger, I now want one.
