Illusion is the Ultimate Weapon

Oh my god. The M.A.S.K. intro sequence., circa 1985, is amazing. (And I second everything Dustin says here.)

Man, I can't believe how much the "Mask" theme song totally rips off "Fame." It sounds a whole lot like some other songs I know, too, but I can't put my finger on them.

That being said, I totally had a shock of excited recognition watching that intro. They totally knew exactly how to sell things to us (cartoons, action figures, imaginary secret lives) in the 1980s.

Man i loved M.A.S.K. I had the Jeep/Boat toy, and i used to play with my brother and cousins with a bunch of sofa cushions building a base that somehow transformed into something else.
