Hey, Kathy, is Food Rocks still at Epcot?   I remember it replaced the former 
audio-animatronic puppet show, "The Kitchen Kabaret," some years ago.   
Sadly, Mr Eggs, the ovoid vaudevillian who had co-hosted the Kabaret, ended up 
lying on his side awaiting pick up by a passing garbage truck behind the Kraft 
Pavilion, once the shows (and sponsors) changed.   At least, that's where I last 
saw the Mr Eggs puppet.

The only characters who survived the transition were a very Muppety-looking 
gallon of milk, who crooned 1930s style into a standing microphone (he had a 
pencil-thin moustache), and the chilled but lovely ladies-- dairy products all-- 
he musically introduced from his perch on the lowest shelf in the fridge.

In a bit of Disney trivia, there was, for a short time, talk of adding a live 
puppet show to the food pavilion, once Nestle replaced Kraft and "Food Rocks" 
replaced the "Kitchen Kabaret."   However, it never made it to a pitch to our 
higher ups, or to Nestle.   It would have operated like the late lamented 
"Legend of the Lion King" or the on-going "Voyage of the Little Mermaid" live 
puppetry show.   It would have been based on a very popular children's book. It 
would have been neat. It would have been about... candy.
