Yes, I've seen that Laser 2001 entry on Starring the Computer before.

It makes me wonder if VTech really promoted the computer as a device to play Colecovision and Atari 2600 games through a bunch of extra adapters, or if that is a modern urban legend that certain sites like to stick with. I notice that the description on Old-Computers is rather biased, although not technically incorrect. Then again I sent the administration on Old-Computers an email with details to check & correct some years ago but never heard a word from them. Perhaps I should try to contact the admin (Mike IIRC) through their forum, perhaps they listen more to comments that way.
