Cheech Unveils Mattel Toys

This Thursday, Cheech Marin, the voice of Ramone in the upcoming Disney/Pixar film, Cars, will be unveiling Mattel's new line of toys.
We will be on-hand, providing full coverage.

Update: At 11:30 AM EST, Mattel General Manager, Tim Kilpin, brought out Cheech Marin to unveil their line of toys from the Disney/Pixar film, Cars. The coolest item is a Toss and Talk Plush which when squeezed or thrown, speaks phrases from the film. We plan on carrying that on this site when it's released in May.

Cheech was cordial, as always, and provided us with a brief interview. Here are some highlights:

  • He says the reunion with Tommy Chong is not going to happen.
  • We asked who the band "Yesca" is on the Up In Smoke soundtrack. Cheech says "yesca" is another name for pot and he's not sure why they put that as the name of the band on a few of the tracks.
  • Cheech will be directing a Spanish version of the classic film Dracula, named Senor Dracula. He says the script is finished and everyone likes it. They will start filming soon.
