TV POWWW!
A syndicated television show in the late 1970s and early 80s, often used during commercial breaks or inserted into children’s programs, in which players at home would control a video game by calling “pow” into the telephone, which would activate the fire button on a home game console (first a Fairchild “Channel F” and then a Mattel Intellivision).
Image from Marvin A. Kempner, Can’t Wait Till Monday Morning: Syndication in Broadcasting (Rivercross Publishing, 1998).

That’s my kid, now ten years old. Sometimes we return to this artwork for a visit. 

Quantoid alert: 3 on a scale from 1 to 5 is “whatever.”
