Flashback: 1965 Ad For the "Tummy Television"

This five-inch TV will stay flicker-free — "even if you jiggle when you laugh." Smaller tummy? Buy the four-inch set! Have a wife? Give her the free "earplug" Tummy Television provides. They really do think of everything.

The 5-inch Sony, for waist sizes 38 to 46. (For smaller tummies, buy the 4-inch set.) Our 32 non-heating, long-living transistors plus our telescopic antenna give you flicker-free reception — even if you jiggle when you laugh. The Sony works on AC wall plug or clip-on batterypack. So that your wife can sleep, we also include a personal ear plug. The beauty of a TV set this small: when you've had a bellyful of television, you hide it under the pillow.

Under the pillow? Because where else would you put it!
