Two cartridges for the RCA Studio II Home TV Programmer. Mostly, I just love the hand-drawn couple used to advertise the system. The guy looks like he’s a little afraid, but a little excited, and the woman looks like she’s just said, “I’m not really comfortable with this, Harold.” It’s also worth noting that neither of them are touching the device at all. I can’t imagine what part of that was supposed to indicate, “Hours of fun!!”
