This bag uses a liner the size of those bags that newspapers used to be delivered in. It spills out all over the place. According to the bottom of the bag, it's "more than a bag" (Mas que una bolsa). I have no idea what else it might be though so maybe someone can help me out here

This Guatemalan bag also says "Nuestro mejor destino es satisfacerle", which I think means that their finest destination is merely satisfactory.

Tahiti Morrea Service

If for some reason you happen to need to get from Tahiti to Moorea, and during your ferry trip you get seasick, this is your bag! If the ship is as big as represented on the bag, you could just walk between the two islands.

White plastic w/five multi-color airplanes. Happy children pilot four of the planes. However a very sick king is piloting the fifth. Very nice bag.

According to royalty expert Chris Ed Rock ,"The sick king piloting a merry-go-round plane is Otto Soglow's The Little King. The Little King was a famous character in US cartoons for decades, appearing in his own newspaper strip, in numerous gag panels (including in The New Yorker) and as magazine ad spokesperson for Royal Pudding. A food product, see? Another footnote is that although The Little King was a spokesperson, he never spoke in any appearance, anywhere, although other characters with whom he would interact would speak as required.

I am continually amazed by the breadth and knowledge my uber-cultured visitors possess.

This plastic bag has a fat tire track on its left side. In fact, if you look at one of the original Frogger Arcade machines, you see the same tire track going down the left side of it. Could this bag's designer have worked for Sega?

This bag is different from the 2001 bag because it doesn't yet have Spanish on it. A fine Jaya product.

Another excellent TAM bag, this one sporting pictograms lined up as if part of a bowling alley, where the 2 and 3 pins have been knocked down.

Tam Mercosur

Print or Image Color: Red, Silver
Background / Bag Color: White
This plastic bag is rather shiny and generic. Has Portuguese, English, and Spanish, plus a very slight windfoil direction field that covers the silver portion. Can't really tell it's from TAM at all.

Yet another excellent TAM bag, this has the Frogger-like tire track on the left, but it also mentions Mercosur, which is a Regional Trade Agreement between Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Paraguay.

This bag is identical to the other TAM Mercosur bag except that the draw string is now red instead of white.

Excellent bag with the back half of a plane pictured on the front.

This plastic bag is rather generic. Has Portuguese, English, and Spanish, plus a very slight windfoil direction field that covers the lower portion. Can't really tell it's from TAM at all, unless you are a connoisseur of Tam Mercosur bags and then it's obvious.

Identical to the other Tam Red bags except this has a red block on the back.

Tame

Ecuadorian bag similar to all other Tame bags through time, except they decided to change the manufacturer to Montgar (see bottom left).

Finally, Tame decided to add the word Ecuador to its bag, displaying national pride in doing so. Bag says, "Alas para la integracion" which I think means "I give up at Calculus".

Still much the same bag as 20 years ago, however, the company name is no longer subordinate to the logo.

Same as it ever was, except now the manufacturer is Montegar (see lower left).

Looks very much the same as it did in the 80s except for the reverse "negative" colors. For some reason, the bag mentions SAB Catering Service (as the culprit for getting you sick no doubt).
