Remember your first Magic 8 Ball?

The original eight-ball first appeared in the 1940's during an episode of the classic TV comedy, The Three Stooges. In the Three Stooges episode, the eight-ball was just called a "magic ball". It wasn't until years later that the classic version we know today first appeared in stores.

For most of us, the eight-ball was our first, child-like foray into the world of divination. Some kids thought of it as a simple toy. Others embued the black plastic sphere with otherworldly properties and peered deep into its mysteries.

The first versions of the magic-ball looked more like a crystal ball. In 1950 the first magic 8 ball was commissioned by Brunswick Billiards (hence it's similarity to a pool ball) and the rest is history.
