Pez is eager to unwrap the joys of Halloween.
Monthly: Mummy Pez, you are part of the new
2003 Pez Halloween set, along with Skeleton Pez, Jack-O-Lantern
Pez, and a new Witch Pez. How does it feel to be a part of
the Pez family, and a glow-in-the-dark dispenser to top it
has been the most exciting time of my short life, because
I am glowing on the inside as well as on the outside. It
is such an honor to join the ranks of this esteemed group
of fine, fine dispensers. I'll tell you, when the Halloween
set was updated last year, I think everyone was surprised
when just a year later another update was released.
Yes, Mummy Pez, but this is no ordinary Pez
update. With all due respect to your predecessors, you and
your three compatriots boast a refreshingly modern and lively
design. Have you experienced any jealousy from the older
dispensers as a result of this?
MP: It was a little rough at first. I'd hear the
whispers as I was hanging on the display, the odd glances here and
there from my fellow dispensers. One time someone actually accused
me of not being a mummy, but rather a giant set of pink buttocks
peeking through a bunch of noodles. But you know, that was then
and this is now. We're one big, happy Pez family now.
Well, that doesn't sound like jealousy as much
as it does some friendly ribbing, although I am glad to hear that
it's over. Speaking of ribbing, what's up with the painted ribs
on your buddy Skeleton Pez, and the bats on the new Witch Pez?
Is that some kind of war paint or what?
Oh no, Skeleton Pez is a gentle dispenser. He enjoys sunny afternoons
and the smell of cookies baking. As for Witch Pez, she likes to
mellow out with some Norah Jones and reruns of "Hollywood
Squares." She wouldn't harm a fly, really. But I think the
dispenser markings are just part of an effort by Pez to spice
up its dispensers a bit. It is a new century, you know. Plus,
some of the very earliest dispensers had markings on them too.
Need I bring up Bozo Pez or the original Psychedelic Eye Pez?
Point well taken. It's always nice to see something
different on a dispenser. Do you have any plans for this, your
first Halloween as a Pez dispenser?
With any luck, I will be dispensing fruity goodness to kids of
all ages. But I would settle for being put on a prominent display
by my collector's front door, so that when all the little trick-or-treaters
peek in the house while getting their candy- Pez candy, of course-
they can see me peeking back at them. That would really be a Kodak
That sounds like a simply wonderful time, Mummy
Pez. Have we covered everything you wanted to talk about, or do
you have anything else you would like to share at this time?
No, I guess that's a wrap! Ha ha! Get it? I'm a mummy, so it's
a wrap! Oh, man.
