The Muppet Christmas Carol At Taco Bell
Many people have happy memories of collecting fast food toys. I vividly remember getting this Muppet Christmas Carol ornament at Taco Bell in 1992 and thinking it was pretty sad.
At the time, Taco Bell was not known for having cool toys for kids. I don't think there were any commercials for this promotion.
At least the artwork (with Kermit as Bob Cratchit, Robin as Tiny Tim, and the penguin carolers) is nicely done.
These ornaments are just two stickers and a blank plastic disc with a piece of string. You have to put them together yourself.
A better set of fast food toys (finger puppets) for The Muppet Christmas Carol was released at Hardee's in 1993. You can check them out at The Muppets And Pee-Wee Herman: The Great Big Christmas Caper Adventure.
A more impressive set of Muppet fast food toys that required assembly was Jim Henson's Muppet Workshop At McDonald's.
