The Mighty Thor Table Lamp

The Mighty Thor Table Lamp

Westland Gifts recreates some childhood memories with their Marvel superhero lamp line.

As a child of the 1960s, I grew up watching a local TV show here in the Twin Cities called Clancy & Willie. I was most excited about the Marvel superhero cartoons they always showed.  it was truly one of the best parts of my day, when I could project myself into The Mighty Thor, The Incredible Hulk or Spiderman!  

Then later, after school, I would move all around our basement fighting the villains, because I was Thor! With my mighty imaginary hammer, I would thwart every enemy!  If I remember correctly, I would even use various blankets for my cape.  

 

"The Mighty Thor" was part of the animated "The Marvel Super Heroes" series, originally syndicated in 1966.

I would also read any "Marvel Comics" comic books I could get my hands on!

So when I saw these table lamps for the first time, all those wonderful childhood memories came flooding back.

I also learned a ridiculous little poem, from my older brother, about Thor.

 

Thor the mighty thunder god

Sat upon his favorite philly

"I'm Thor!", he cried

His horse replied

"You forgot your thaddle, thilly."

 

I have since tortured my daughters with that poem. Even now, they reluctantly quote it with me when they hear me say, "Thor the mighty thunder god..."

 

So, to this day, I still find Stan Lee's superheros full of adventure! These authentic Marvel lamps recreate excitement  and wonder in me, like I was a kid again!
