McDonald’s Halloween Collectibles from the 1990s!

It’s been a BIG Halloween season for McDonald’s. Certainly the biggest since I started blogging over two decades ago. The Boo Buckets Happy Meal hasn’t just inspired millions to buy their first Happy Meal in years, but it’s also spiked interest in McDonald’s vintage Halloween stuff.

…which is why I’m here tonight!

Join me for a show-and-tell session with some of the rarest McDonald’s Halloween collectibles I have, all from the 1990s! Everything from ceramic jack-o’-lanterns to a teensy tiny Grimace-themed saxophone!


This’ll probably be my last video of the season, and I’d like to think I’m going out on a high note. If nothing else, at least I’m helping to justify all the money I blew on ceramic pumpkins and banged-up McDonald’s posters.

I think you’ll dig it! Thanks so much for watching this and my other videos throughout this year’s Countdown. I feel like I finally found my weird groove, and I look forward to doing more on YouTube all year long! Read More…

1999 Broadcast of Garfield’s Halloween Adventure!

Got a new video for you tonight, and it’s a hot one! My buddy Chad blessed me with a copy of the final network television broadcast of Garfield’s Halloween Adventure, from 1999!

In this video, I’m diving into the tape to gush about the classic Halloween special and all of the TV commercials that came with it!

Click here to watch on YouTube!

If you grew up with the ‘80s airings of Garfield’s Halloween Adventure, seeing it with TV spots from *1999* is a real trip. Course, since even that was more than 20 years ago, the commercials pack their own kind of nostalgic punch.

The spots feature everything from America Online to Grape Nuts O’s Cereal, and in the video, I yanked out five of my favorites for a closer look. I’m really happy with how this one came out, so I hope you dig it!

Thanks for watching. I’m looking to get another vid done soonish, so while you wait for that, be sure to visit Dino Drac’s Daily Halloween Thing for regular doses of spooky nonsense. (And if you liked this video, remember, sharing is caring.)

And PS, if all of this puts you in the mood to watch Garfield’s Halloween Adventure, the whole thing is on YouTube, uploaded by the fat cat himself.
