NOT SO SCARRY BUSY TOWN IS EXTRA BUSY.

PRESCHOOL TV ICON RICHARD SCARRY WILL NOW BE ASSOCIATED WITH MORE THAN JUST CHILDREN'S BOOKS AND CABLE TELEVISION'S NICKELODEON.

THE MAIN CHARACTER OF THE BUSY WORLD OF RICHARD SCARRY WILL NOW BE SEEN ON PACKAGES OF CERTIFIED ORGANIC FOODS. THE CREATORS OF SCARRY WILL LEND HIS NAME AND PICTURE TO A LINE OF "KID-TESTED" FOODS. AMONG THE 24 NEW TASTE TREATS ARE SINGLE SERVING MEALS LIKE CHEESEBURGER MACARONI DINNER AND VARIOUS FLAVORED JUICES.

THOUGH NOT A NEW IDEA, THE RICHARD SCARRY PRODUCTS WILL BE THE FIRST ORGANIC FOODS ASSOCIATED WITH A TV OR MOVIE CHARACTER.
