Just won this promo poster. The size is 8.5 x 11 so I'm guessing based on the size and the Viacom name that this is a video promo probably sent to video stores....still pretty cool...........Larry

Larry, way to go, I love it! Never seen one of those before, and my guess is that it's probably be rare. The two things I like about it are a) it's a promo (:D) and b) it features a large portion of grass that is to our left of the trick-or-treaters. Quite often, such as in video covers and posters, this is cut off to isolate just the three children. The Goodtimes products feature the *right*, in which the grass has a steep incline. Am I dorky or what? It makes me wish I could have the full painted (or however it was made) image.

Larry, if you ever wanna sell that thing, lemme know! ;)

Thanks...you'll be the first :) I really like finding these oddball promo items. The onesheets are a dime a dozen. To me finding any original H3 memorabilia is the hardest of the series to find. When was the last time you saw a presskit for this movie for sale? ...........................Larry

Never! No one here owns a copy to the best of my knowledge, not even Josh (Myers63).

Damn...I'll never find one then. I remember eyeballing a set of presskit stills a year or so ago on Ebay and not buying at the time and ended up missing out...................... :(

Larry, I tried to bid on that item yesterday but some baloney came up about shipping. At least it went to you, a dedicated fan! I was trying to look at the Viacom production offices listed on the bottom to see what origin this promo card is from. Can you see what cities are mentioned there? I was thinking this might be from Canada or somewhere because I've never heard of Viacom having anything to do with the series, least of all H3 which was a Universal pic.

Anyway, cool! :D

Ahem... How soon you all seem to forget, gentlemen...! ;)

From my collection list:

Italian Two-Sheet
Mexican Lobby Poster Set
US Lobby Card Set
French Lobby Card Set
US MCA Presskit
Australian Roadshow Press Sheet
British Thorn/EMI Pressbook
French Pressbook
US Colour 8x10 Still Set
British Press Still

The only problem is I don't have the folder that it all came in, and am missing I would guess about half of the stills. :)

I can't make out the details either Paul. As soon as I get it I will post a better picture. Viacom, if memory serves, may have been involved in syndicating movies for television viewing. So it may be a tv promo of some sort. Anyways we'll know soon enough.
I knew you had a slew of H3 items...that presskit is elusive though!

Paul...do you know if there were any British FOH still sets issued for H1 thru H3?

Yes, yes there were, Larry. You of course have some of the H1 stills, I now have the H2 set and Vincent has two of the H3 stills! ;)

I mean any color stills...similar to the 8x10 lobby sets here. I have some British b&w stills but no color ones. I'd love to see a pic of that H2 set!!!!!!!

I had no idea you own the MCA kit, Paul! You must take a picture; I am impressed.

Yeah, we'll probably get to know more when the item arrives. Congrats again, Larry, and keep us posted ;)

The H2 and H3 ones are colour. There were of course single stills (not in sets) that were released in B&W, but I have never seen colour H1 stills from the UK. They probably didn't have any.
