Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure (Kenner)



Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
Kenner
1991

"Excellent!"

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure was a movie that came out of nowhere in the 80's, and became a cult classic with a not so excellent sequel. The film starred Alex Winter as Bill S. Preston, Esquire, and Keanu Reeves as as Ted Theodore Logan - AKA, Wyld Stallyns!

The figures from Kenner in 1991 aren't based on the actual film, but rather the 1990 spin-off animated series which ran for twenty-one episodes. The first season of the show is notable for the actors from the film returning to the roles for the voice overs - Something highly uncommon in the cartoon world, but definitely appreciated by fans. When the show went into production for a second season, the actors voicing the characters were changed to those of the actors who would also be portraying them in an upcoming live action spin-off the same name.

The series is relatively small for such a notable company such as Kenner, and the lack of playsets or vehicles (with the exception of the phone booth) definitely doesn't help. However, it's not a bad bunch of toys, and fans of the movie will definitely appreciate being able to own these characters - Especially considering that no toy company has revisited the concept to date.

As many fans of the of the films know, a third film has been in talks/development for numerous years now. Obviously it's hard to say if the film will ever make it into production, let alone be released.
