Strangely aseptic design, isn’t it? Via eBay.

Where else would a black hole be, Schaper? Actually, there was a never produced game based on the Black Hole movie (below, as seen in Marx’s 1980 The Black Hole catalog) that looks exactly the same, except Marx’s version makes sense and looks cool. I’m not sure why Schaper thought the silly thing would sell separated from the movie, especially when presented in that godawful box!

The poster/chart was produced by Caltex, a Chevron subsidiary. According to South African Comic Books, there were 20 stickers to be collected and stuck to the second side of the poster. On side one, you’ll see a way-too-excited kid holding some of them up. There’s also a big Maximillian display on top of the fuel pump!

Courtesy of Tom at Garage Sale Finds, where you can flip through the whole catalog. I suspect the (costly) films here were purchased primarily by elementary schools, because I remember watching a number of Disney flicks on the trusty projector in the 1970s. They were always the second tier films, though: Herbie, Snowball Express, The Apple Dumpling Gang, etc. I would have jumped around like a delighted madman if one of the teachers had busted out The Black Hole.
