Muzzy in Gondoland (often shortened to simply Muzzy) is an animated film first created by the BBC in 1986 as a way of teaching English as a second language. Sometime afterwards, Early Advantage acquired the rights to Muzzy and translated it into Spanish, French, German, and Italian in order to teach these languages as seconds. The English version of Muzzy features the voices of Willie Rushton, Miriam Margolyes, Susan Sheridan, Derek Griffiths, Jack May and Benjamin Whitrow. It is unknown, however, who plays whom in the various dubbed versions of the film.
A sequel, Muzzy Comes Back was released in 1989. Click here to watch the commercial that I know you will recognize »
The product, first introduced in 1983 by the Cac Industries, Inc. company, is a compressed foam not unlike shaving cream for bathtime. It comes in 6 colors (pink, yellow, blue, green, orange, purple), each with a different animal on the can. Recent variations have lost the animals in favor of cartoon kids on the can, however. In fact, the can designs have changed several times over the years, as has the formula slightly. But, fear not, anyone who remembers the Funny Color Foam in the ’80s won’t know the difference in the change of formula in today’s.

Introduced in 1986, Go For It! is a board game where players compete to collect Status Cards in four different categories: House ‘n Home, Wheels, Feelin’ Good, and Goin’ Places. Players take turns moving the shared “timepiece” pawn around the board, which represents a calendar year. Labor Day serves as an annual pay day. On certain spaces, a player has the opportunity to buy or sell Status Cards. He may also risk a Status Card on a roll of the dice in an effort to upgrade to a more expensive card. News cards add additional random events, such as gaining or losing Status Cards. To win, you must declare on Labor Day that you are “going for it”. By the following Labor Day, you must have at least 3 differently valued Status Cards in each of the four categories to win.
