Can you guess where I will be on my birthday?

Magical Super Trolls -P1- 90s Television - 1992 Cartoon Series

Thomas Dam's trolls were often stolen and morphed for cheap profit by other companies.  Troll "knock offs" actually began during the 1960's (with Wishnik making the greatest profits) . . . but Russ, Treasure Trolls and several others really made a killing with Dam's copyrighted creations in the 1980's and 90s.

Above is a custom-restored Scandia House Troll that I gave to my sister for Christmas.  As you can see, she is celebrating the New Year with a Bud Light!  (Yes, I know.  There was no Bud Light in the 1960's and early 1970's.)

The Creator of Beautiful Dam Things

Thomas Dam was born in Denmark on October 2, 1909.  He loved and spent most of his life in his hometown of Argir, a village in the Faroe Islands.  On January 11, 1986, he passed away, just before the second "troll craze" hit.
