Frito Kid in ACTION!

Feelin' snacky?  Talented artist/animator Jim Campbell has fashioned a crunchy little flash animation experience for those who've always wanted to see the Frito Kid do his thing at Disneyland.  Click this link right now, drop the coin into the slot and stand back!

(And after you've had your virtual-fill of those dee-licious chips of corn, check out more fun diversions on Angry Jim's website.)

1955 free Party Ideas booklet given out at Disneyland.

I'll tell you what, nothing goes better with Mexican food than a paper cup of grape juice.

The fabulous Casa de Fritos of Frontierland, September 1955.

This is the second Frito Kid story I've seen in as many days! Is it Frito season? Anyway, this is brilliant. Thanks for pointing it out.

Dan Alexander said...

How corny (corn chippy?) ;-) Very neat-o!

I found out about the Frito Kid after I got the Disneyland Frontierland pewter set as a gift years ago(created by you and Jody, right?).

Angry Jim said...

Thanks for posting that. Funny thing is making it actually made me hungry for fritos. I seem to be susceptible to vintage advertising. I bought a kodak brownie flash camera off eBay once after watching commercials with for it on one of those Disneyland television shows on dvd.

Kevin Kidney said...

By the way, All, I should point out that if you keep on feeding coins into the coinbox, you will hear the Frito Kid's various spiels. Nice touch, Jim!

And speaking of being a sucker for vintage advertising, I still have a fondness for RC Cola simply because it's the "mad mad mad mad cola!"

That's so cool! Not only do I want Fritos now, but I have a desperate craving for grape juice in a paper cup!

Thanks - Great post!

Very cool! I wonder what happened to the figure of the Frito Kid when they took him out? Would they have saved something like that back then?

He kind of reminds me of Lil' Alphie, the Alpha Beta Grocery Store mascot!

AJ Wolfe said...

It is always a beautiful experience when one of my favorite blogs in the world comes through with a rare food post. And a Frito Kid post at that. Oh how I wish I had seen him.

wow. that was better than sex.

I just noticed those star-shaped lamps, the same kind that were inside the Kaiser Aluminum Telescope.

kurtisaurus said...

That was AWESOME. I never experienced the Frito Kid magic firsthand, it was a tad before my time sadly. Did that music actually play with the spiel? I've always heard that music mixed in since the 50th anniversary recordings came out but have been told that the actual spiel was voice only.

Kevin Kidney said...

Yes, you are correct - There was originally no music track behind the voices of Frito Kid and Klondike.
