Del Taco Spices up Holidays with Animation

Fast-food chain Del Taco has partnered with Classic Media to sell digitally re-mastered DVD releases of the animated holiday favorites Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town. The titles will be available for $15.99 for a limited time while supplies last. This marks the first time Del Taco has sold merchandise in store.

In addition to the DVDs, Del Taco will offer Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town plush toys with each purchase of a Del Taco Kid Loco kids’ meal beginning Dec. 5. Plush characters include Winter Warlock, Burgermeister, Santa Claus and Topper the Penguin.

Featuring the voice talents of Burl Ives, Fred Astaire, Mickey Rooney and Jimmy Durante, the three Rankin-Bass classics have been TV favorites for decades. Forty years after its broadcast debut, Rudolph remains the most-watched and highest-rated holiday special.

Among Classic Media’s other holdings are Casper the Friendly Ghost, Mr. Magoo, Richie Rich, Peter Cottontail, The Lone Ranger, Lassie, Underdog, Little Lulu, Pat the Bunny and Lamb Chop. The company also has Rudolph and Frosty tie-in plushes available at your local Starbucks locations.
