Potato Head Kids was a TV show that began in 1985. It was created to pair with a show My Little Pony 'n Friends. An episode of My Little Pony was played for 15 minutes and then an episode of Potato Head Kids, MoonDreamers or Glo Friends follow. Potato Head Kids was an outgrowth of the Mr. Potato Head character franchise. Mr. Potato Head now played an adult figure in the lives of the title kids, a varied bunch of different potatoes with different personalities. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head often appeared, but they were far from the focus. Actually, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are just general generic characters, assuming roles ranging from "Farmer Potatoes" to "Teacher Potatoes" to "Parent Potatoes" depending on what the kids felt like doing on a particular day.
