Universal Studios - Notes on Tour

Here’s a silly little item I just happen to think is really cool. A simple note pad souvenir from Universal Studios. Undated, but since jaws is featured I’d place this at 1975/76.






The 24 assorted pages are really six different assortments four times! Anyway, here are the six different pages by Vagabond Creations. We went to see Jaws the summer it opened at Universal, somewhere around here I have a super8 film I took of the event, gotta look for that.

Great art work. Cool pace too!

Neat! Considering the zillions of people who visited Universal Studios over the years, there sure doesn't seem to be much in the way of souvenirs out there.

Love the shark illustration! I remember how disappointed I was the first time I saw it, and it looked GREEN. The tour guide said they had to replace the gray skin since the shark was in the water constantly...

Looks like the Stage 70 show at that time was the "Emergency" screen test theater. Before that it was "Adam-12" and my dad got picked to be one of the cops. He bought the souvenir film of it too....I haven't watched it in years...I need to have him dig THAT out! I also remember going when it had changed to "Airport '77" and the people they picked would have to jump into a big tank of water.

Nice cool blog, beautiful looks like the stage 70. Here you'll see the past, present and future of Hollywood come alive.
