A Wendy’s Kids Meal bag that was given away with the chain’s Teen Titans cartoon-based toys. As neat as the promo was, being licensed by Wendy’s is the fast food merch equivalent of being told that your beloved franchise is getting sent to live upstate on a nice farm; in the end, the attached Bandai coupon lasted slightly longer than the show did, expiring about a month after the final Titans episode aired on TV.
(I don’t know why the coupon wasn’t valid in Quebec.)
I do like that the evil aliens who trapped Robin somehow created magical bricks that can only be destroyed by math-based karate. Really showing some initiative, those evil aliens.
The Killer Moth and Kitten episode of Teen Titans is (still still?) probably my favorite from the entire series. I should probably look into getting the DVDs at some point…

Pin-up by the great Golden Age Batman artist Dick Sprang, featuring Batman and Robin diving into action against Joker, Penguin, and Two-Face. Looking kinda melty there, Penguin…

Before the Hasbro/Kenner conglomerate purchased rival toymaker Galoob, they attempted to compete with Galoob’s MicroMachines via their own series of miniature figures, vehicles and playsets, collectively known as MicroVerse. Since Kenner held the Batman license at the time, they produced a few MicroVerse sets related to Batman: The Animated Series / The Adventures of Batman and Robin, including this tiny rogues gallery pack. Each figurine is roughly the size of a fingertip.
Personal photo taken in 2005, though I think the set itself was released concurrently with the show. Also: KB Toys “clearance” sticker!
