Toon Disney, Disney/ABC Cable Network’s 24-hour, all-animation channel, and Frito-Lay Inc. are teaming up this summer to bring the spirit of Disney animated characters to more than 80 million packages of Frito-Lay products.

In addition to significant media and on-package advertising, the campaign — titled “Look for Magic in the Bag” — will feature an instant-win game offering cash, Frito-Lay product and Toon Disney prizes.

The multibrand, multiproduct campaign is set to run beginning today, June 5, through July 8, 2000. The agreement marks the first time Toon Disney, one of the fastest-growing emerging cable networks, has partnered with an outside party for a promotion of this type and size.

“This partnership with Frito-Lay represents a new landmark for us in that `Look for Magic in the Bag’ is the single largest off-channel promotion yet created for Toon Disney,” said Adam Sanderson, senior vice president, marketing, Disney/ABC Cable Networks.

The “Look for Magic in the Bag” promotion will run in Frito-Lay distribution channels nationwide. During the promotional period, more than 80 million packages of Frito-Lay supermarket-size products, including selected Lay’s, Cheetos, Ruffles, Doritos and Fritos products, will feature a “Call your cable operator for Toon Disney” message.

Additionally, Toon Disney’s logo will be featured on approximately 10 million collectible instant-win prize cards. One of six different Toon Disney characters will also be featured on the cards, which will include from $5 to $100 cash or a redeemable certificate for a Toon Disney premium item or Frito-Lay product.
