90s, epitome of.
Aubrey McFate
I was a member. That group is the epitome of 90s-era PC gangs.
Zhou Fang
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.

Caminante Nocturno
There is a kid in a wheelchair at the very end. And I think he's Asian.

Westward
I believe the wheelchair kid's name was Wheels.

Also later they added a hispanic kid named Lingo. He spoke, y'know. Different languages.

Aubrey McFate
The wheelchair kid was - get this - a computer whiz kid! Why not, he's part machine anyway!

Aubrey McFate
And the Kid N Play lookalike (Jaws? the hell?) was good at sports other than basketball, thus making the stereotyping okay!

Aubrey McFate
Lord, I'm going to stop now.

One of the great things about the PC "We're Sorry For Ignoring You All These Years" 90's was that the harder they tried to appease the lost ones the worse they made things with their staggering incompetence and intrinsic insensitivity. Of course they put an asian in a wheelchair and make him good at math. Asians will like that because they can identify with that sort of thing.

Aubrey McFate
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).

Jeff Fries
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.
Emcee
No burger-chasing amusement park fun for the cripple kid who only shows up at the end.
Caminante Nocturno
There sure is a lot of time focused on the adults for a commercial about a Kid's Club.

DUDE THIS IS RADICAL
Xenocide
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.
thekidinthehelmet
It was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. BK released four episodes on tape and they all had this promo before them, and thank Snapz (I can't believe nobody mentioned the run of the mill blonde girl that takes pictures) I still have all four of the vhs to this day.

But you couldn't go wrong with being a member, you got a free kids meal on your birthday. How awesome was that?

joyofdiscord
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.
Caminante Nocturno
But the de facto leader in the Planeteers was from Africa.

Camonk
IN YOUR FACE! You don't know ANYTHING about cartoons!

Shit, I think that makes you the winner.

Hooker
Was a member. As far as I'm consciously aware, it didn't increase my desire for Burger King over McDonalds at all.
Big Beef Burritos Supreme
That is exactly how marketing works, chubby.

You are simply not aware you're being conditioned.

Mike Tyson?!
I had a Kid Vid action figure growing up, I used him as THE ULTIMATE BAD GUY to my Ninja Turtles.
Jeff Fries
Whoa, I did the same exact thing.

Big Beef Burritos Supreme
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.
Rodents of Unusual Size
Film editor seems to take it pretty well that a miniature man is stealing a giant burger.

This thing is rife with Freudian imagery.
dementomstie
ROUS sometimes a cheeseburger is just a cheeseburger.

dementomstie
They just broke the 4th wall AND the 5th wall. I didn't even know that was possible.
DMKA
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).
