Pink Bunny Pez is
hoppy to be here.
Monthly: Gray-Haired Pink Bunny Pez, thanks
very much for joining us. Although you are new to the
Pez Easter set in 2009, to the untrained eye you might
look quite familiar. Would you care to explain what sets
you apart from the standard Pink Bunny Pez dispenser that
was released in 2004?
Pink Bunny Pez: Well, not to get this interview
started off on the wrong foot, but I'd like to offer a
small correction. No Pez dispenser should ever be described
as "standard." We are all unique in our own
ways and bring our own special qualities to the table,
or the shelf, or what have you. But to answer your question,
the main difference is that I have gray hair and eyelids,
whereas the other Pink Bunny Pez has light purple hair
A small but distinct difference indeed. It must have been
a challenge for you being so otherwise similar to the
first Pink Bunny. Did you
worry that people might pass you by, not seeing you as
a new dispenser, when in fact you are new this year?
Nah, it didn't really upset me. The way I see it, people snatch
up Easter dispensers no matter how they look. I suppose it's
due to their ability to dispense fruity goodness to kids of
all ages. Plus, I have to tell you, the true Pezheads make up
for anyone else who would mistakenly pass me by. I'm telling
you, the collectors have a sharp eye for any variations in dispensers
when they find them at the store. In fact, to some Pezheads,
and not to toot my own horn, variations are more sought after
than traditional dispensers.
Very interesting. Why do you think this is, Gray-Haired Pink
Well, in some cases, ultra rare variations can fetch a handsome
amount of money. But I think most Pezheads just appreciate all
of the different ways that the same basic Pez dispenser can
be so different. The possibilities are almost endless. They
could have different colored stems, different face colors, perhaps
some eyelashes or feathers. The untrained eye might not pick
up on the differences, but the Pezhead's eye does. And the cool
part is that it's up to each Pezhead to decide if they want
to collect variations or not, either across their whole collection
or for specific pieces. When my collector brought me home and
I saw an entire shelf of Batman Pez variations, I knew I was
in good company.
Well that's certainly good to hear. Switching gears, sometimes
we forget that, while new Pez is always a good thing, new Pez
dispensers didn't ask for the life that they were given. Not
to bring the interview down, but out of curiosity, do you have
any complaints or objections?
No big ones. I guess my only beef is that I am unable
to hop around to all the houses and deliver Easter candy
to all the girls and boys. Well, technically, I am unable
to hop around at all. Unless of course I fall off the
shelf and hop around on the floor. But that would be hopping
beyond my control, and involuntary hopping is never a
good thing. And especially in that case, it could end
That's a good point, Gray-Haired Pink Bunny Pez. Finally,
does it bother you that although you are one of the newest
Pez dispensers released at time of this writing, you already
have gray hair?
Pink Bunny Pez, right, is noticeably different than the
original version released 5 years ago.
Oh, heck no. Lots of people have gray or even white hair and
are not yet considered vintage, but in fact are in the prime
of their lives. President Obama is already going gray, and he
just took office 2 months ago! Plus, just look at Anderson Cooper,
Taylor Hicks, and Keanu Reeves in "Dracula." Although
to be fair, if Dracula had nearly scared me to death, I would
probably get white hair too. Which I suppose would be another
variation to collect! But in the end, it's not the color of
your hair, but what's inside that counts. And inside of me,
there is Pez candy. How can you go wrong with that?
