Madballs from Mondo are Coming!


Kids who grew up in the eighties might remember the whacky-faced bouncy balls called Madballs. Now Mondo, a poster and apparel design company, is launching a new line of Madballs called “MondoBalls.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, the first characters to debut will be Skull Face, Horn Head, and Slobulus. In the future, MondoBalls plans to partner  with movie studios to release characters from “Friday the 13th” and “Gremlins.”

Marvel will also be releasing Madballs through Mondo. The first character they will debut is the villainous Venom, from the “Spider-Man” comics. Check out this throwback commercial for Madballs and the first MondoBall images below.








I really wish Marvel (or whoever owns the rights) would collect the ten issues of Madballs they published through their Star Comics imprint back in the day. I’ve found a few in back issue bins, and those so much fun and full of the absolute worst puns!

I’d like to think that you guys featuring Bouncing Boy and the planet of Madballs a few years back is what caused this revival…
