How many times did you watch the adventures of Ralphie and his quest to get a Red Ryder air rifle?Who could forget the “triple dog dare you” moment when Flick got his tongue stuck to the flagpole during recess or Ralphie’s disappointment when he discovers the message from the Little Orphan Annie Secret Circle was an ad for Ovaltine. How many times have you told your kids “You’ll shoot your eye out”?
