The Bird's Eye Kids Go Shopping

You know, I get that some companies think it's a neat idea to make comics to promote themselves. And I get that creators hired to do those comics have a lot of constraints placed on them, not the least of which is trying to make a reasonably coherent and vaguely entertaining story out of absolute drek. But this is right down there with the worst.
Not that you're interested, but that big white box on the bottom of the cover was where a small box of crayons was glued. (You can see some of the residue stained the inside of the cover as well.) The yellow box above/behind the dog on the cover could be used for an individual grocer to put their own name/logo.

Sean, I have a copy of "The Birds Eye Kids Go Fishing" that still has the crayon box glued to the cover with all 4 unused crayons inside!

...and removing the box will ruin the cover!

Wow -- it must have been warehoused or something to still have the crayons with it. I would think those would be hard-pressed to remain in place just from shipping it around a few times. Great find!
