Hardees - Marvel Superheroes
Thanks to all of the great stories from the Retroist Podcast: Fast Food Memories I have found myself hankering more and more for some fast food…and maybe thinking back on those fantastic collectibles we obtained from those Happy Meals and Kid’s Meals in our youth more often than I normally do. CT’s story especially got me yearning back to the day when I was able to get my hands on my first Hardee’s Marvel Comics 3-D Theatre featuring the Origin of Firestar!

I was a huge fan of the Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends TV show and I would never miss a Saturday morning episode on NBC. Heck, that is where I learned of many of the Marvel Comics characters firsthand like the X-Men, Dr. Strange and the Mighty Sub-Mariner! When you tune into the program week after week and start to see TV commercials like the one below you can bet I was bugging my Father to visit Hardee’s by the very next commercial break.

Like I mentioned before Firestar was the first ‘action strip’ that I was able to get my hands on. I ended up collecting 5 of the 6 strips but the one that I never was able to get was for Spider-Man himself, I guess he was just too popular to keep in stock.

A big thanks to He-Man.Org and the Project Child Murdering Robot for some of the awesome images you see above but more importantly a bigger thanks to CT for getting me thinking about the Hardee’s 3-D Theatre again!
