Birthday Party, 1979: ‘Pin the Tail on the Daggit’

Birthday Daggit 1979

I envy Devlin Thompson, who writes of his 11th birthday:

My father… made the game out of white and mustard-yellow poster board (do they even make that color anymore?), and did a bang-up job of it, if I do say so myself. There was also a cake with a Colonial Viper airbrushed on top, and I seem to remember loaning the baker one of the toys as a reference, though it may have just been a comic book or an issue of Starlog.

It was a hell of a thing when the Cylons attacked Caprica and Boxey’s daggit Muffie got killed. I guess all those people dying was sad too, but seeing Muffie’s little paw sticking out of the rubble was the worst.

It was pretty awesome when Boxey got a robot daggit for a replacement, though. I wish my cat made rad robotic daggit noises.

    Dood that’s some super-random awesomeness right there. A freakin’ Daggit of all things?! I wish he had a shot of that Viper cake.

    I’m gonna have to revisit the original BG series. I remember watching it all the time when I was a kid, but the death of Muffie is totally over my head. LoL I always thought he just had that robot daggit from the beginning. I had a bunch of those BG figures!

    You have to watch the 2-hour pilot, anyway. It’s easily the high point of the series.
