Re: 1970s Children's TOS Tunics

I remember having a kid's shirt in about 76 or 77 that had maybe the standard 4 views of the Enterprise printed on it. The design came in blue and a chocolate brown color. I had the blue and remember giving as much holy hell as an 8 YO can give to another kid that had the brown one.

There is some deep sociological truth here. We get crapped on for being Trekkie kids, but crap on another Trekkie kid for the wrong color. Hilarious! Lord of the Flies. Yay humans!

Ahhh, the glory days of being a TREK kid. They'll never come again.

Re: 1970s Children's TOS Tunics

There is a great scene in "Free Enterprise" where one of the protagonists gets into a school fight while wearing his gold TOS tunic. The tunic is even a topic of discussion during the fight. Hilarious!

Re: 1970s Children's TOS Tunics

If only the new movie could revive the old kids' clothing craze of my childhood. But kids today have so many other movies and TV shows to keep them enraptured and dressed like spacemen and superheroes that I doubt we'll see many TREK shirts on children anymore.

Around 1975 I got a child's gold command shirt, short sleeved with a great ribbed collar.
Holy childhood flashback!

Yes, I had them too. A gold one and a red one. Wore 'em until I couldn't anymore. I remember seeing them in a local JcPenny store with my grandma and I just had to have 'em. I wanted the ones with long sleeves, but because it was summer at the time, my grandma wouldn't hear of it and got me the short sleeve versions instead.

I wore those shirts proudly with my toy phaser, communicator, and tricorder! I remember running up and down many dirt hills as if they were alien planets and doing drop kicks to my friends...

Re: 1970s Children's TOS Tunics

Great thread-brings back very fond memories! I had the red short sleeve shirt, but my favorite was the white short sleeve shirt from TMP--I wore that shirt everywhere when I was 8 or 9 and I still miss it!

Re: 1970s Children's TOS Tunics

Wow, I do remember those Donmoor Star Trek shirts. I think I had a gold one. Short sleeve, too (I wanted long sleeve, but it wasn't available). They were pretty well made, considering the production source at the time.

Yeah, I also recall the green one. I definitely didn't want it as I knew it wasn't right, even then.

Here's an image of the green shirt.
And a color chart showing the Donmoor colors compared to the original ones.

YES!! Puppy Patter! You are great! It's been weeks since I revisited this thread, as it seemed to really slow down. I'm so glad I checked back. Now my family has verification I am not insane. Just a former nerd who wore Trek too-small clothing in 1979 and remembered (out of all the things from his babyhood) a depressed, psychedelic, pull-string dog.

Thanks again!

The really sad thing is that the sound box is gone. I was hoping to fix it one day.
