and welcome to the pages of Pezhead Monthly!
rather light for me on the Pez collecting front. The only new
dispensers I got were the Thomas the Train tin set. I have to
be honest, when I first saw the set I passed it up since I thought
I had 2 out of the 3 dispensers in the set already. But then another
Pezhead brought to my attention that there are actually 2 new
dispensers in this set. Luckily I was able to find the set again,
at Walmart for the nice low price of $10.
issue was quite robust, including the introduction of the Petey
O'Jay archive page, Petey's
Twitter page (follow
him today to get tips on where to find the newest Pez releases!),
and an updated Halloween page. This month tones it back a bit,
but there is still plenty of Pez love to be had. For starters,
there is a Pezzified version
of the cover of the new President Bush memoir, Decision Points.
Next, there is the return of a feature that has only appeared
one other time, PezTube, where video odes to Pez are recognized.
Also in this issue is some Pez Poetry and the Pez Almost-Quote
of the Month. Lastly, since there's been a few Thanksgiving features
in Pezhead Monthly over the year, there is now a Thanksgiving
page where you can access all of them.
A couple of
years back I started a feature called Peztube, with the aim being
to recognize video odes to Pez, in addition to the written and
visual formats that are typically used in this publication. The
video featured a truly brilliant and mesmerising mix of stop-motion
animation and an original, catchy song. It is a work of art that
I occasionally revisit to this day. Then in April of this year
I put together a
video of my own to celebrate the many Batman Pez in my collection
(a number that has grown considerably even since then).
a while, so I thought I would revisit this feature with a few
great Pez videos I discovered on YouTube. These are all family
friendly, and links are posted directly after each video in case
your Internet browser does not support embedded video.
video is another stop motion masterpiece. You may recognize the
song, an 80s classic called "I Want Candy" by Bow Wow
Wow, and a perfect selection for a Pez video (and one that happens
to be on any playlist I put together for the drive to a Pez convention).
This video is a real treat. Be sure to visit the direct
page and tell the creator what a fantastic job she did on
For our final video, did you know that the hit game show "Jeopardy!"
once had an entire category devoted to Pez? Check out all of the
answers and questions here

If you have
a Pez video of your own that you'd like to submit for a future
issue of Pezhead Monthly, please feel free to do
so. Or, if you just come across a Pez video made by someone
else that you'd like to share,
that's okay too.

I am proud to announce the all new Pezhead MonthlyThanksgiving
page. It's not as robust as the recently updated Halloween
page, but there are still several gratitude-related features
from the Pezhead Monthly archives, including articles,
poetry, a song, and more.
