Questions for the Black Cat Pez Dispenser top

which witch? I don't want to choose a particular one over
another and cause any hurt feelings. I mean, there's the standard
Witch C, the glow-in-the dark Witch, the 2003 Witch, the 3-piece
Witch, and the Witch regular. And don't even get me started
on the Misfit Witches. Witch, please!
all paws for a moment to admire Black Cat Pez.
Monthly: Black Cat Pez, thank you for
joining us. You are the latest Pez dispenser in the
Halloween series, and if I must say so you are very
well designed. Is it a bit intimidating to be joining
one of the longest running and coolest series in the
Cat Pez: Quite the opposite, sir. Each
and every one of my fellow Halloween dispensers have
welcomed me with open arms, or at least they would
have if they had arms. Even Slimy Sid, who I had heard
can be a bit difficult, was totally cool. I guess
the only way it could have been a smoother was if
some other dispensers were released along with me,
such as an updated Frankenstein or Wolfman. After
all, no one likes to go to a party alone.
I see your point indeed. So have you bonded yet with
any of the other Halloween Pez?
Well, not yet, but then again, I've been awfully busy
making appearances all over with Halloween getting
closer. I know you'd think that I'd be a perfect match
for Witch Pez, you know, because I sometimes go on
broom rides with
I understand where you are coming from there. Shifting gears,
and I'm not intending to get on your bad side, Black Cat
Pez, but it seems from your furrowed brow that you are angry
or frustrated at something in particular. So what's the
I knew this question would come up eventually. I may look
mean an ornery, but I want to assure all Pezheads out there
that I am ready, willing, and able to dispense fruity goodness
to kids of all ages. It's just that sometimes the little
things get to me. For example, when people drive and talk
on the cell phone at the same time, that really stirs my
stew. Same thing when someone with a cart full of groceries
goes in the 15 items or less lane. Unless they are buying
Pez, in which case that's okay. And if you think about it,
have you ever met a cat without some kind of an attitude?
I suppose I have not, and your point is well taken. Now,
I know that you are part of a Pez dispenser set that celebrates
a frightful holiday. But is there anything in particular
that you are afraid of?
Overall, I'd say no. I always found that there's safety
in numbers, like when kids go out together trick-or-treating,
or when celebrities travel with their entourage. And
there are plenty of other dispensers in the collection
I am a part of, so it's not that scary. That being said,
I'd be lying if my hair didn't stand up the first time
I ran into German Shepherd Pez from the Emergency Heroes
set. But I have since discovered that he loves getting
his belly rubbed. What a big sweetie.
That is fascinating to be sure. Finally, Black Cat
Pez, as you make your debut this year, do you have
any words of advice for people new to the hobby?
Cat Pez and fellow feline friend Raven. (and another
picture of the two)
I'm a modest dispenser and all, but I firmly believe that
I would be a great start to any Pez collection. And for
the more experienced collectors out there, get me while
I'm hot because come November I understand that I will be
very hard to come by. I know it's considered bad luck to
let a black cat cross your path, but trust me, I am an exception
to that rule. And if you should ever cross my path, it would
be the purrfect opportunity for you to add me to your collection.
