Description

Mr. Potato Head appears in the arcade-like attraction in Disneyland and Walt Disney World. He acts as a ringmaster of sorts and speaks to the guest while on a line to ride the attraction. He is a large semi-digital Audio Animatronic that can truly interact with guests and, as a nod to his origins, pull apart his body pieces. He is able to identify guests and the clothing they wear as well. Kids like dressing up the toy, then playing out scenarios from their life. This often takes the form of creating little potato families, because they're learning what it means to be in a family."

Mr. Potato Head: "Let's just go straight to Exhibit 'F.' The kidnapper's vehicle. Now, the vehicle fled the scene in this direction." For the uninitiated, the Potato Head is simple in concept. It’s a plastic potato with a set of removable features including goofy protruding ears, eyes, glasses, mustache, feet and arms. The product has long been called “Mr.” but it included a “Mrs.” and baby spuds as well. In 1975, the main potato part of the toy doubled in size and the dimensions of its accessories were similarly increased. This was done mainly because of new toy child safety regulations that were introduced by the U.S. government. The size change increased the market to younger children, enabling them to play and attach the facial pieces easily. Hasbro also replaced the holes with flat slats, allowing only one possible orientation for the attached parts. In the 1980s, Hasbro reduced the range of accessories for Mr. Potato Head to one set of parts. The company reintroduced round holes in the main potato body, and once again parts were able to go onto the toy in any orientation. [ citation needed]About Mr. Potato Head".

The conversations about Mr. Potato Head and trans kids or whatever the culture war narrative is are a huge distraction,” author and CNN columnist Jill Filipovic told CNN’s Chief Media Correspondent Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources” Sunday.

Mr. Potato head also appeared in The Simpsons episodes " In the Name of the Grandfather" and " The Spy Who Learned Me". A spoof of Mr. Potato Head named Mr. Carrot Head appeared in The Simpsons episode " Angry Dad: The Movie" in 2011. At the end of the film, Mr. Potato Head is overjoyed to hear Molly receiving a Mrs. Potato Head as her Christmas present. When the toys congratulate Mr. Potato Head, he remarks that he better shave, so he takes off his mustache. Mrs. Potato Head” talks about plastic surgery, insisting that even if pretty does hurt, it’s probably not worth it to start cutting and pasting because one may regret trying to make themselves into something they are not. This is Melanie’s favorite song from her debut album Cry Baby. In the Florida parks, Mr. Potato Head makes notable appearances at Disney's Hollywood Studios. He appeared as decor in the new dismantled Pixar area of the park and during the Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun Parade as a walkaround character near the Toy Story float.This section may contain irrelevant references to popular culture.

For instance, in the real world, the toy Mr. Potato Head's eyes are attached to each other with only one hole on the plastic potato to put them in. In the Toy Story films, Mr. Potato Head's eyes are separate, and have one hole for each eye on the plastic body to place them in (this is true for the shoes as well). That is the reason the Toy Story Collection version has connected eyes, in which the eye connection is a "half inaccuracy." The collectors were not pleased.
