was a pretty hectic month for me. It started off with an
accident on the way to work one day. I was fine, but my
car... wasn't. In fact, it was in the shop for over 3 weeks,
but I am proud to report that it is now as good as new and
ready to drive to the next Pez convention. On the Pez front,
the one big score I got came off of eBay. As a Batman fan,
I have been trying for a while to get the vintage Batman
with cape, and as a bonus I found with German patent and
even a display case thrown in, all for a very reasonable
price. Have a look here.
He will truly look great with the many other Batman variations
I have already acquired.
April issue of Pezhead Monthly keeps the Pez love
rollin'. In another installment of the Flip Side feature,
Cool Pez and Angry Pez duke it out over what exactly the
relationship between Pez and Spring is. Also, this month
we debut a new feature, the Pez Almost-Movie Moment, where
we take scenes from popular movies and reimagine them as
odes to Pez. Rounding out the issue is some Pez Poetry and
the Pez Almost-Quote.
if you'll excuse me, I am off to see the phenomenal movie
"Grindhouse"- again! Take care and see you next

Flip Side: Is Spring The Perfect Season For Pez? top
of page | cover page
the season of Spring now officially upon us, the question
on everyone's mind is obviously: Is Spring the perfect season
for Pez? Here to share their opinions in another installment
of Pezhead Monthly's occasional feature, "The
Flip Side," are Cool Pez and Angry Pez.

dudes! When Pezhead Monthly asked me to comment on
Spring being the ultimate season for Pez, I was all over
that like a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos!
Pez and Spring go together, man. Isn't it obvious? Pez candy
isn't winter-loaded or summer-loaded, it's spring-loaded!
The spring is an essential part of the anatomy of a Pez
dispenser, ain't no denying that. And that's all you gotta
know right there!
it goes deeper than that, my friends. You see Spring is
when everything is new again. The trees, the flowers, the
grass, they are all reborn. So what better time of year
is there for new Pez than Spring? Have another look at your
go-to place for new Pez. If you don't have any luck there,
there's always eBay, man.
brothers and sisters, seasonally speaking, Spring is the
opposite of Fall. And I think we all know that the last
thing Pez dispensers want to do is fall. Not only does it
lead to the possibility of serious injury, but there is
always the "domino effect" principle to consider
as well. Being responsible for the collapse of one's hombres?
Spring and Pez go together like cheese and wine, peanut
butter and jelly, and Batman and Robin.
Got To Be Kidding Me!

know what? This topic really burns my burrito. With all
due respect to my esteemed colleague, he is way off base
here. Spring is in many ways the arch nemesis of Pez and
all that it stands for.
allow me to elaborate.
may be a time for rebirth and growth, but all that pollen
and grass in the air leads to something far more sinister:
allergies. Picture this scenario: A dedicated Pez collector,
placing his final few dispensers on display. Suddenly, through
the open window, the smell of the fresh grass and flowers
sneaks into his nostrils. Before he knows it, a wild and
intense sneeze escapes him. All at once, hundreds of Pez
dispensers are knocked off of the shelf. There are dispensers
and candies lying everywhere. Some are scratched, some are
broken beyond repair. The Pez collector is crushed, and
in need of a Kleenex. Not only to blow his nose, but also
to wipe the tears from his eyes.
blood isn't boiling at Spring's anti-Pez agenda yet, then
consider this. Every year, it's a ritual for people to declare
all-out war on every room and closet in their house. It's
called Spring cleaning, and it really steams my broccoli.
After all, it is too easy for someone unfamiliar with the
magic of Pez to accidentally throw out a family member's
Pez dispensers in the interest of a cleaner home. Some people
refer to this as the "baseball card phenomenon,"
where mothers toss out their children's prized collections
without knowing how much the collections mean. When the
victim of this horrid crime realizes it, it is usually too
late, and heartbreak ensues.
thanks to Spring! Like I said, it's truly one of Pez's worst
enemies. If we could somehow jump from Winter directly to
Summer, that would be great. Don't get me wrong, I'd still
be angry about something else, but getting rid of Spring
would at least be a step in the right direction.
Angry Pez, and that's my opinion. You got a problem with
