The kid-unfriendly coloring books of Dune

Earlier this week, we introduced you to the parody children's book Goodnight Dune. But that's not half as bizarre as the real coloring and activity books released with the Dune film. Enjoy coloring those dead bodies, kids!

The Dune activity book series was released in 1984 to promote Universal's Dune adaptation, apparently with the thought that recipes for mind-altering cookies and drawings of syringe-shaped missiles would have parents rushing their kids to the theaters.

DISCUSSION

I remember my mom mentioning Dune to me when I was a kid in the 70s. She pointed out that the desert stuff in this new movie, "Star Wars", seemed derivative (she was too polite to say rip-off). I was excited to say the least.

Me: "Giant worms, wars, super mind-powers? Cool! Can I read it? Can I, huh, can I?!?"

Mom: "Uhhh. Maybe you should wait until you're a bit older."
