Q*bert was one of the top video game merchandizing machines of the early '80s. The arcade game came out in 1982 and by '83 Gottlieb boasted over 125 Q*bert products. Q*bert even got his own cartoon although I can't say that I really remember it (probably because it didn't have a Christmas special that they could keep re-running like the Pacman cartoon). Anywho, out of those 125+ products one happens to be riding a skateboard. Q*bert is seen here in PVC form atop his board with some kneepads and headphones.
