The LaserDisc Turtle

An obscure reference for sure, but those who had or still have a LaserDisc collection may remember the funny little “LaserDisc Turtle”. For those unaware, LaserDiscs would often have part of a program on one side of the disc and additional material on the other side, but if a disc had material on one side only and you put the disc in to read the blank side, Pioneer LaserDiscs would display this little guy to let you know to flip the disc around. I always called him the “Wrong-Side LaserDisc Turtle”, and I even made a couple of t-shirts with him on the front. No one’s recognized him yet.
