Cool, refreshing taste all kids love.
Powerful "Oh, Yeah!" battle cry strikes fear into the heart of villains.
Only useful in thirst-related crises, #12 red dye provides lousy camoflage, inability to use doors, gates, or other conventional means of entrance.
The thirsties; a ruthless race of spikey-haired gremlins with advanced weaponary and spacefaring technology light years ahead of our own, dedicated to making the citizens of earth tremble in minor inconvenience.
Pure genius. An indestructable corporate mascot rips a hole through the side of your battlecruiser, exposing your entire crew to the vacuum of deep space, and your plan is to mildly dehydrate him.
After purchasing roughly 250 lbs of powdered fruit drink, a few lucky individuals collected enough Kool-Aid points to receive their very own copy of the Kool-Aid Man video game for the Intellivision or Atari 2600. The game consisted of bouncing a shapeless orange blob (Kool-Aid Man) around the screen, in an effort to prevent other shapeless blobs (thirsties) from totally draining your swimming pool. (a task we normally have to pay illegal immigrants $2.50 per hour to do for us) Though it may have been completely shameless commercial tie-in, it wasn't any less playable than any of the other games for the Atari 2600, and not half as unsettling as some of the other items produced by the Wacky Warehouse™
