I LOVED Legos as a kid. Who didn’t? They were colorful, expansive, and you could create anything! I always wondered if Simpsons creator Matt Groening got the idea for yellow faced people from all those lego characters…Anyway, remember Zach the Lego Maniac??? This kid was out of control! He knew how to make his legos, and he even had his own catchy theme song…that is, until he got fired. I wonder why Jack the Lego Maniac came on the scene…did Zach’s ego get out of control? Did he demand too much money in his contract renewal? Did he choke to death on a lego? We’ll never know…unless someone wikipedias it…Enjoy these classic Zach (and Jack) the Legomaniac commercials, and never keep stacking those little Danish bricks kids.
VIDEO # 1- In which we are introduced to Zach and his amazing sunglasses, his lego collection, and his neon light sign that spells out his name…Certainly in the top 5 of 80s kids rooms.
VIDEO # 2- Zach’s back with greater ambitions. He’s building microchips and cosmic ships set to conquer outer space. But clearly Zach was growing crazy, check out his insano eyes at the 15 second mark…Apparently Zach would just become another victem of space madness. RIP Zach.
VIDEO #3- OK, so Zach went nuts, and possibly died…no problem, lots of kids names rhyme with maniac…uhhh…Mack, Tack, Rack, Black….no…oh yea…JACK! Jack’s taken over Zach’s gig, but not his cool room. Jack apparently lives in an orphanage, doing his best to bring his orphaned buddies good times with his amazing LEGO pirate set. Sadly, Jack was never adopted.
