In 1989, McDonald’s began giving away “Funny Fry Friends” in Happy Meals. The Funny Fry Friends were hipper and cooler versions of the Fry Guys (who were always a little weird in the first place). This past weekend I ran across a complete collection of the Funny Fry Guys still in their original McDonald’s display case.
I don’t have the room to start collecting displays (although I do have a couple of Star Wars displays from various fast food giveaways…) so this one (which was priced at $100 even) is still there, if anyone’s interested. The display appears to have lasted a lot longer than the hip-hop fry guy routine did.
