I wasn't around in the 30s, but I remember "doctor recommended" cigarettes. That may be coming back with all of the deregulation rage.

He speaks better than Trump. But he also said that he'd blame someone for something. He has a bigger brain and heart than Trump.

I can remember these smoking dog toys from the late 1950's to early 1960's in the U.S. which came with a number of their own "cigarettes," and were often sold as novelties out of highway rest room vending machines...

My parents had a Winston Churchill doll that smoked, had its own supply of cigars.

Music was my refuge.
I could crawl into the

Here are Electro's "guts." He really wa a marvel for his day, using technology then available and reflecting a 1939 vision of the future that included a lot of robots. Sadly then the harmful effects of smoking were not well known, so a smoking robot was considered a really cool thing...
