TRN Podcast 029: Fast Food Kids Meal Toys

Jason and Mickey return with a follow up to our Top 5 Happy Meal Toys episode. First, Jason mourns the loss of World Market, but then Mickey picks up the mood but giving his first reactions to Disney+. Then, it’s time for the latest Recurrent Events headlines including:

  • G.I. Joe: War on Cobra mobile game
  • WWE Ice Cream Bars
  • Zach returning to Saved By the Bell reboot
  • Supermarket Sweep returning to ABC

Our TRN Time Machine segment this week sponsored by RetroDaze.Org takes a look back at fast food! Our Happy Meal episode was such a hit that we are going back to revisit our favorite Kids Meal Toys from other restaurants. Toys from Pizza Hut, Wendy’s, Hardees, Burger King and more made our lists and we can’t wait to talk about them! Plus, we read listener feedback on the topic that we requested on social media prior to the show. And before we go we’ll tell you about a few things to look forward to this week on The Retro Network.
