Maybe:

→ posters
→ spaceexploration
→ advertising

I think I've seen a lot of these images before. Maybe on 60x1.

Also: I wonder if there might be the Chinese versions of Jackie Snad & Clancy Bachleratt (sorry, NBC.com video clip) singing folksy songs about space­ships, tod­dlers, the mythology of China and cans of pet food.

Years ago, in a whacky Japanese shop called 宇宙百貨店, I found a postcard featuring Chinese space babies, different from any in the link. I bought a whole sheaf of them and had one framed. I need to scan that and get it online.

That's the superiority of the socialist system, elizardbits. What you decadent capitalists need years of expensive training and a rigorous selection process to achieve is literally child's play to our chubby young pioneers. And of course they don't have to get used to pissing in their pants all over again (除非是穿开裆裤长大的).

In space no one can hear you cry.

Also:
Uphold science, eradicate superstition, 1999
It seems there are a lot of people (in the US at least) who are behind the Chinese in that regard.

The first part of that sentence is just making me laugh for some reason.

I want Bringing His Playmates To The Stars (1980). That would make the best Trapper Keeper EVER.

Ooh, thanks. That reminded me about this Daisy Owl story arc, and Daisy Owl in general.

They appear to have discovered Big Rock Candy Mountain. Or maybe Rainbow Brite's Color Caves.

Beautiful image (which was not with the ones I linked to) and a great big scan.

Thanks, adamrice!
