The single most popular game of all time, Pac-Man spawned several lines of merchandise and a Saturday morning animated series on ABC that lasted two seasons from 1982 to 1984. There was even a primetime animated Christmas special called Christmas Comes To PacLand. Pac-Man was born from a pan of pizza with one slice missing, as Toru Iwatani of Namco, tried to think of a character for his new game. At first, called Puckman, it was changed due to the fact that the middle section of the P could be scratched away to make the name into an expletive. Atari actually turned down the North American rights deeming the game too easy. As many machines as Bally’s manufactured, clean original Pac-Man arcade games are still quite rare and high in demand.
