Check Out What I Found At My Local Supermarket Today!

While I was out buying up enough booze to get through a zombie apocalypse for our Super-bowl party this weekend, I ran across  this little gem; a 70's style custom Hot Wheels van with a Frankenberry theme! Even though I nearly choked on the $5 price tag, I just couldn't pass it up! If you like it, you should check out the video below featuring wonderful animation project in which Frankenberry and Count Chocula’s original commercial is redone with using CGI in the style of those awesome Rankin Bass stop motion specials.

  1. Ooooh, that's too cool! Five bucks would have shocked me as well, but I'm pretty sure I would have also grabbed that happenin' van if I saw it in a store. Wonder if they make vehicles for the other monsters too? And, that must have taken a lot of work to make that commercial repro. Pretty neat!

    Here's my look at Monster Cereal nostalgia if you care to check it out:

  2. Hey glen,

    Yes, they did have vehicles for Count Chocula and Boo-Berry as well, but I think I will pick them up on my next two trips for groceries. I love your blog - Great stuff!
