More Marvel Mania: Awesome Kids Placemats!

Yesterday we shared with you the kids menu from Marvel Mania, a restaurant that lasted a little over a year and closed down in 1999. Today, we’ve got another blast from the past for you, three of the placemats given to children to occupy their time while the parents got a much needed rest from a day at Universal Studios Hollywood.

All three of these are great! There’s one featuring the Fantstic Four with three activities: a Thing maze, a “Spider-Man Super-Villain Scramble” and a fun “fill-in” piece — anyone want to do the work for us to see what it reveals? Then there’s “The Many Marvelous Faces of Spider-Man” which allows you to create your own version of Spider-Man (just don’t expect to see him featured in Spider-Verse!). The best one of the three here has to be the “Contest of Crime: A Trivia Challenge of World Dominating Proportions!”




The Marvel Mania restaurant was truly ahead of its time, launched well before Marvel exploded in to main stream pop culture consciousness. One wonders were they to open a restaurant like this now if it would have survived a bit longer.

Special thanks to Remy Minnick for these and to Rob Levin for the scanning.
