Cereal Prizes: One out of every 24th box of 24 cereal includes the deadly screwdriver. Finally, kids will be able to stab & kill the neighborhood bully even if he or she is wearing a bullet-proof vest.
Submarines: How about the sub from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea? My memory is very shoddy, (I haven't watched it since I was a kid), but I thought that sub could shoot lasers & also had a "mini-subplane" that could detach from it & fly into outer space!
Standup comics sitcom: A Family-Ties type show that has Bill Maher as the ultra-liberal father trying to deal with his Reagan conservative son Alex P. Keaton. Unlike Michael Gross' dad trying to understand his son at the end of every episode, Maher would condemn his son for being selfish & greedy. (How dare you try to make a profit, ALEX! MY SON IS JUST AS HORRIBLE AS THOSE BIG EVIL CORPORATIONS!)
