        Burger Chef kid's meal boxes

        The Burger Chef version was called the Funmeal, which was a Funburger, fries, drink, chocolate cookie with chocolate filling inside (I believe they were made by Keebler) and a toy "surprise of a prize".

        Burger Chef was the first restaurant chain to create a kid's meal.

            PBS show with guy DRAWING as story is read ---I think you're talking about Pappy Land.
            Could I be read if I were see-through or would you just read my spine?
