ORANGE and PINK: the best color combo

Short-lived WFL team the Southern California Sun. Why has this color scheme not been repeated, as far as I know? Hotttt!!!!!

Most RCA Studio II cartridges. This short-lived, doomed videogame console rocked orange and magenta boxes despite being black and white on the screen. My theory: the worse the vintage videogame console, the snazzier the cartridge design. (c.f. Fairchild Channel F, Coleco Telstar Arcade)

Somehow in my youth I failed to notice that noted Charlie Brown Thanksgiving advertisers Dolly Madison were rocking this audacious color combo. Also, they had a product called Googles?!
