Model rocket launch at 1500. Don't be late.

Is there a good online repository for technology geek ephemera from the 80s? I'm thinking of a teenage kid in his 80s bedroom holding a soldering iron, working on a hobby project next to his C64. Would love to see imagery, video, back issues of magazines, whatever.

I'm thinking of an 80s pop hit...

I'm thinking of an 80s song, common in movie soundtracks, that starts with a sung "Oh we oh we oh we oh wee ohh Ahhh". The google, it does nothing. Any ideas?

Trying to figure out the title of an old Easter special from HBO...

Is anyone familiar with an Easter puppet special that was on (I think) HBO in the early '80s? I remember that it involved a bunch of bunnies working in an Easter egg factory, and that the Easter Bunny ("E.B.") was fairly nervous and might've had a Woody Allen-esque delivery. It definitely isn't "Tale Of The Bunny Picnic" (though that looks pretty cute, too). Bonus points if there's a streaming version anywhere online - I'd love to show this special to my bunny-obsessed niece. Thanks, all.

Name that 80s toy computer

What was this computer I had as a kid? It was in the early to mid 80s. It was small (barely bigger than the keyboard). It had a very small built-in display (LCD, I think). There was a membrane keyboard. It took cartridges, and some of the carts came with keyboard templates. There's one in particular I remember that had information about countries of the world, and the template had one flag for each key. I seem to recall the plastic case being beige, but I'm not 100% sure. It could play sounds, and there was a cart for composing music. What was this thing?

I am usually the dude that answers these questions. Today I am not this dude.

I'm usually the dude that answers questions like this, but for the life of me, I can't remember the title of the film. It was early-mid 80's, possibly a TV Movie, where two "righteous dudes" are kidnapped and brought to this town that looks eerily like small town Kansas circa 1950. It turns out that this city is a training ground for Soviet sleeper agents, and the dudes were kidnapped to update the training program. In the end, the dudes lead an escape from the town back to America.
