McDonald’s Star Trek Happy Meal Commercials


With the new Star Trek movie coming up, it is time to revive the Star Trek Happy Meal once again. These commercials were created for the release of “Star Trek the Motion Picture” way back in 1980. I cannot be absolutely sure, but I am pretty sure I ate from one of these boxes when I was a youngster.

One thought on “McDonald’s Star Trek Happy Meal Commercials

  1. Doug says:

    I love how the music on the first one is so creepy, almost like a horror movie. If they were going to offer Happy Meals for a Star Trek movie, I think the first one is probably the worst one they could have done it for. I never saw the whole thing, but wasn’t more of a thinking movie and Khan was the slam bang movie?
