Sky Dancers will be flying all over McDonald’s restaurants this summer when the popular syndicated half-hour weekly show moves into the fast-food chain, backed by a national McDonald’s Happy Meal promotion in the U.S.
The program supports the release of a new animated video series by Razzmatazz Entertainment, the children’s label of Greenwich, Connecticut-based Cabin Fever Entertainment.
The promotion will offer a Sky Dancers toy and a US$2 rebate for all Sky Dancers videos. Each of the three new videos Lilac, Rose and Fern features two episodes of the show and has a running time of 50 minutes. The videos are packaged with a collectible Sky Dancers figurine, valued at US$5, and retail for US$12.98 each.
