Animaniacs Plastic Lunchbox

This molded plastic lunchbox, featuring images of the Animaniacs characters Yakko, Wakko, and Dot - the Warner Siblings - was sold in 1996 by Aladdin Industries, an American vendor of lunchboxes & thermal food storage containers. Aladdin Industries was created as a subsidiary of Mantle Lamp Company in 1914, specifically to manufacture vacuum bottles. In 1950 they produced the first licensed character lunchbox featuring Hopalong Cassidy, and became instrumental in tying lunch boxes to pop culture. Aladdin continued manufacturing various lunchbox designs until 1998. This lunchbox comes complete with its original thermos, and is in overall fantastic shape!

‘Steven Spielberg Presents Animaniacs’ is an American animated comedy television series that first aired on Fox Kids from 1993 to 1995, and then on The WB from 1995 to 1998. Each episode usually consisted of two or three cartoon shorts of various lengths, from bridging segments less than a minute long to episodes spanning the entire show length. The Warner siblings functioned to tie the show together by appearing in and introducing other characters' segments. In 1996, Animaniacs won two Daytime Emmy Awards, one for "Outstanding Animated Children's Program" and the other for "Outstanding Achievement in Animation". During its run, Animaniacs became the second-most popular children's show of children ages 2–11 (behind Mighty Morphin Power Rangers)!
