‘Back to the Future’ Toys and Cartoon
I love me some Back to the Future. Being a time travel nut, I can’t help but love these movies! While I was cleaning out my step-son’s room this past weekend, I stumbled across the toys below.
I’ll be honest, I have no idea where the DeLorean on the left came from. I suspect it was some fast-food giveaway in 2005 when the DVDs of the films were released. The DeLorean in the middle came from a 1989 Back to the Future Texaco Havoline Gas Station Micro-Machine playset (the set also came with a future Police car). The DeLorean on the right came from McDonald’s in 1991 promoting the Back to the Future animated series.
I guess I’d seen all of these at one time or another, but seeing all three together surprised me. I didn’t think there were a lot of toys for the movies. Then I decided to Google “Back to the Future toys“. Holy crud! I had no idea there were so many toys associated with these films.
The DeLorean on the right got me thinking about the animated series. I never saw the cartoon, but was always curious about it. Then I checked out YouTube for the “Back to the Future” cartoon. First up are the opening credits to Season 1 of the Back to the Future animated series.
Second up are the opening credits to Season 2 of the Back to the Future animated series.
Well… that cured me of my interest in seeing the animated series.
