Seeing this pog on Mike Sterling’s POGressive Ruin rejiggered whatever part of my brain stores childhood memories of obscure fast food mascots

Circa 1994 Wienerschnitzel had a small group of kids meal characters (kinda like the Burger King Kids Club I guess), each one associated with a different food item. There was this reptile girl (iguana? lizard? gecko? dinosaur?) whose defining characteristic was her love for french fries. I don’t remember the other characters. Oh wait I think one was a weasel? I’ve searched the internet in vain. It’s like they never even existed at all… I guess they were eventually replaced with “The Food Dudes” who starred in their own books.

I won’t give up in my quest to find these characters… I still believe…
