We had the home version!
That Mr. Microphone commercial was so hilarious! I actually had one of those, & I remember the commercial as being really cool, (which it probably was at the time). I couldn't believe how completely ridiculous it was when I watched it just now! (Looks like some people who commented on it actually thought it was a joke)...
Yeah it kind of reminds me of some of those late 70's, early 80's faux SNL commercials (like John Belushi for chocolate doughnuts ) The situations just seem laughable even if there's no punchline. If you do a youtube search for "Ronco commercials" you'll find more wacky products and gadgetry... Ronco always made unintentionally funny commercials.
