Broccoli and Co.
I always loved the characters at Epcot's Kitchen Kabaret. I vividly remember picking up a plush toy Mr. Broccoli at the Disney Village Marketplace in 1983. But I chose a stuffed version of Figment to be my souvenir for that trip
I recently got a deal on Mr. Broccoli, Mr. Eggplant, and a Banana, and now they are in my collection!
The ceramic Milk Carton creamer came from an antique store in North Carolina many years ago. The postcard came from Epcot in 1990.
Kitchen Kabaret merchandise could be purchased at a store in The Land called "Broccoli and Co."
My favorite part of Kitchen Kabaret was when Mr. Broccoli shouted "Eat Me!" to the audience.
He didn't really, but wouldn't that have been wild?
Kitchen Kabaret closed to make way for "Food Rocks" in the 1990s. That show ultimately closed to make way for "Soarin'". Kitchen Kabaret characters still manage to show up from time to time as merchandise, including Vinylmation.
