New PEZ is here. It’s just inside.
I get it. You don’t want to look at new PEZ.
That’s fine. I understand. You didn’t hurt my feelings.
But what do I tell the PEZ?
I guess guilt trips do work.
First up, the PEZ from Open Season. I’m going to admit right now that I haven’t really done the homework on tonight’s post –such as hitting a couple of sites to get the names of the characters or any other information. So, um from left to right, the movie includes a mean dog, a retarded, one-antlered dog, a big bear, and some sort of grinch-owl.
Next in the veritable cornocopia of plastic dispensers based on cartoons I’ll never watch, Over the Hedge. Surely you know about the movie based on the err… exploits of the buck-toothed squirrel, the turtle, the french skunk, and um the fur helmet guy. The movie that teaches us that uhh…. differences are what make you interesting, teamwork is good, and it’s totally okay to make fun of fur helmet.
I’ll be honest. All that cartoon PEZ is making me feel winded. Let’s take a break from all the vibrant colors. Oh, how I long for boring PEZ that all looks alike. And by alike, I mean like crappy football trophies.
I’m not much of a sports fan, but I can pride myself on having enough man-sense in my man-DNA to name the teams. Here we go, left to right.
- the allligators- or maybe the crocodiles. Possibly a turtle-gator. This one is tricky.
- ah yeah, I know this one. Went to school there. Flint Central Indians.
- another easy one. I live in Texas now. It’s totally the Bullseye Barbeque Team.
- The Siamese Cats- Boy, it must be embarrassing to be on this team. Three words– Litterbox halftime show.
- Woot – Alabama Elephants. Go Trunks!
- The capital Gs
- University of Michigan. Go Wolverines!
Ahh, just when you thought it was safe, more cartoon dispensers. Cars. Haven’t seen this one either. It’s been described as “Doc Hollywood” with cars. If you’re going to make a cartoon (and eventally PEZ) from a Michael J. Fox vehicle (heh… get it? … vehi– ) It should be Teen Wolf, or Back to the Future. Heck, I wouldn’t mind Family Ties PEZ (though I expect the cartoon would suck).
Ice Age 2. I did actually see the first one, and I’m pretty sure that I can name these ones. Left to Right — Snuffleupugus, the Lion King, the vampire weasel and the …um… what the heck is that thing?
