McDonald's released a set of four Fraggle Rock Happy Meal toys (plus two Under Three toys) in 1988.
The following characters were made:
- Gobo Fraggle in carrot car
- Red Fraggle in radish car
- Mokey Fraggle in eggplant car
- Wembley Fraggle and Boober Fraggle in cucumber car
- Under Three Toy: Gobo Fraggle PVC figure holding carrot
- Under Three Toy: Red Fraggle PVC figure holding radish
Each toy came in its own Happy Meal box.
A McDonald's commercial showcasing the toys was also produced, with new footage of the animated Fraggle Rock.
Test Happy Meal
A test version of the Fraggle Rock Happy Meal toys were sold the previous year in the southern part of West Virginia. Test Market Happy Meals are released on a very limited basis in a small area to test the popularity of the toys, and see whether or not a nationwide promotion is warranted. McDonald's has discontinued this practice in recent years.
The test version included the Gobo and Red cars, but also included two Doozer cars instead of Mokey, Wembley and Boober's cars. The two Doozer cars were:
- Cotterpin and two red helmet Doozers on fork lift
- Three yellow helmet Doozers on bulldozer
This set is very rare and sought after, particularly the Doozer toys.
