305 - Sea-Monkeys
Promoted as "the real live fun pets you grow yourself" Sea-Monkeys took the world by storm in the 1960s. Essentially brine shrimp delivered by mail after being advertised in comic books, it was marketing genius. Generation after generation were captivated by the idea of the little creatures but then in the late 1980s creator Harold von Braunhut's extremely controversial views came to light. Throw in X-Ray specs and a lawsuit over the Sea-Monkey fortune and you've got a wild story.
