90s, epitome of.

I was a member. That group is the epitome of 90s-era PC gangs.
Needs kid in wheelchair, or did they add one later? The only thing I remember about the Kid's Club is those TMNT badges that came in one of the meals.
There is a kid in a wheelchair at the very end. And I think he's Asian.
The wheelchair kid was - get this - a computer whiz kid! Why not, he's part machine anyway!
And the Kid N Play lookalike (Jaws? the hell?) was good at sports other than basketball, thus making the stereotyping okay!
The wheelchair kid wasn't Asian, actually. Just your typical freckled brown-haired douche.

The wheelchair kid WAS named "Wheels" (or maybe 'Wheelz," for that extra early-90s coolness effect).

What I learned from Kid Vid and Ernest Go To Jail - two independent sources - is that if I wanted to have special powers I needed to electrify the molecules of my body. Luckily Powder came out and showed me how tragic and homosexual being an electric person is or I might have given it a shot.
No burger-chasing amusement park fun for the cripple kid who only shows up at the end.

There sure is a lot of time focused on the adults for a commercial about a Kid's Club.
DUDE THIS IS RADICAL
The commercial makes me question my own reality. If the Kids Club were born on a drawing board within a piece of film, how did they manage to evolve to the point where they could exert influence on the film within THAT film? Somehow they gained not one, but two dimensions of reality in seconds, and used that power to destroy the universe of the animator who created them.
Truly these children are nothing less than remorseless cartoon Godlings. And they must feed. I am afraid.
But at least if I were in a wheelchair, I would feel afraid but included
Oh man, memories coming back. I swear this was on a VHS tape I had; I can't remember if it was "The Super Mario Brothers Super Show" or Ninja Turtles.
And of course, like all groups like these (see also: the Planeteers), they may be "diverse," but the light-haired athletic white dude is always the de facto leader.
Was a member. As far as I'm consciously aware, it didn't increase my desire for Burger King over McDonalds at all.
|Mike Tyson?! |
I had a Kid Vid action figure growing up, I used him as THE ULTIMATE BAD GUY to my Ninja Turtles.

Everyday for six fucking years, the same burger for lunch, the same fiasco transversing time and space to retrieve it.
And catering wouldn't even let us bring any outside food.

Film editor seems to take it pretty well that a miniature man is stealing a giant burger.
This thing is rife with Freudian imagery.
ROUS sometimes a cheeseburger is just a cheeseburger.
They just broke the 4th wall AND the 5th wall. I didn't even know that was possible.
Wheels was not asian, but was a computer whiz.
Way later on, late in the life of the Kids Club, they added a Hispanic boy named Lingo and a Asian girl named Jazz (who played Jazz music).
