When I was a kid, we had Action Rub-down Transfers™ that let you place Batman and his pals across a stock battlescape or different dinosaurs across a junglescape. I get the same kind of vicarious pleasure from Flashcan Animator, an easy little web-tool that lets even a no-talent ass clown make quick little movies out of other peoples animations. Does anybody know of something similar? I have a whole Friday to waste.

Dfilm is similar, but not nearly as cool. Also carries some risk of email address harvesting if you go past the preview stage.

Are Action Rub-Down Transfers the same as Presto-Magix? I used to love them as a kid. I think I still have one or two from Return of the Jedi laying around somewhere.

I have searched for Presto-Magix since I was reminded of them last fall. They were always a reward for something -- though I can't remember what I did to deserve them.

I never understood kids' fascination with stickers, until I remembered my Scooby Doo Presto-Magix and then it just clicked -- it's fun!

Does anyone remember Kalkitos transfers?

I thought they were called "Color-Forms." They were the video-game equivalent for us oldsters back in the early 70s. Way cool, junior.
