Five Questions for Captain America Pez
America Pez finds "The Scarlet Letter" to be
a very troubling novel.
Monthly: Thanks for joining us, Captain
America Pez. Like the other Marvel Pez that was recently
released along with you, Thor, your release coincides
with a big summer movie this year. What are your thoughts
on being introduced as a member of the Pez family in such
a grand fashion?
America Pez: It's a great way to kickstart
things, that's for sure. People can pick me up on the
way to go see the Captain America movie, and it can make
them feel more connected to it. That's what Thor told
me, anyway. But you know, as much as I love that dude,
he can have a pretty high opinion of himself, so I'd take
that with a grain of salt.
Speaking of salt, people won't need to salt their popcorn,
or to get popcorn at all for that matter, if they load
you up with Pez before bringing you into the theater.
How about that?
like a plan to me. I mean, I don't want to advocate candy
smuggling, but hey, last I checked Pez candy didn't cost
6 dollars a roll. I'm just sayin'.
I hear you, Captain America Pez. Another similarity that you
have with your counterpart Thor Pez is that you are both remakes
of very cool vintage dispensers. Does this put any added pressure
Well, it's hard to step out of that shadow sometimes,
but as far as shadows go, you could do much worse. Back
then, what Pez dispensers lacked in feet they more than
made up for in style. The original Thor had a couple of
neat stem variations, and the original Captain America
had some mask variations too. The newer Thor and I don't
have that kind of stuff, and I am fairly sure we'll never
be referred to as vintage dispensers, but I think we get
Well, I'd say you do more than just get by. There is something
pretty remarkable to be said for being a new Pez release,
Oh, for sure! After all, it is kind of nice that Thor and
I are once again able to be found in stores after so many
years, for very reasonable prices. We're introduced to a
whole new generation of Pez collectors, as well as previous
generations, of course, and we get to hang out with a much
wider variety of dispensers than were available back in
and current: two generations of Captain America Pez dispensers.
That's a good point, Captain America Pez. Finally, this interview
happens to coincide with the month of America's 235th birthday.
Are there any thoughts that you'd like to pass along on this
Well, you know, without America, there would be no Captain America,
and for that matter no Captain America Pez dispenser. So, I'm
obviously pretty thankful for that. But beyond that, I am thankful
for all of the liberties that America offers, all of its natural
wonders, and the many ways in which its people have been a force
for good in this world. Let freedom ring, and while we're at
it, let Pez dispense!
