Food Rocks
Food Rocks
was an animatronic show in The Land pavilion at Epcot. It opened in 1994, replacing Kitchen Kabaret. It closed in 2004 and was replaced by Soarin'.

Development

When The Land pavilion underwent its mid-1990's re-imagining, Kitchen Kaberet was selected for replacement and an update to more contemporarily-styled music. The new show incorporated much of the old set-pieces and utilized simpler animatronics (a sign of the low-budget attractions of the Eisner era), though still retaining the figure of Mr. Dairy Goods. When it closed in 2004, the animatronics were sold on eBay, but would re-emerge and be displayed at a Disney fan event at the Disneyland Hotel called Marvelous Mechanized Magic Kingdom in 2010.

Synopsis

The show was themed as a benefit concert for good nutrition hosted by Fud Wrapper, who was voiced by real-life rapper Tone Loc. However, it was continually interrupted by Excess, a junk food heavy metal band that detests nutrition. In the end, Excess lost their power as Fud Wrapper exclaimed "No power, you guys have been unplugged. There's plenty of foods out there that are good to eat, but remember, always eat with moderation".

The Audio-Animatronic characters were food items with human features. The music was based on popular songs by well-known performers, with lyrics adapted to the topic of nutrition. For example, The Peach Boys, singing "Good Nutrition", was based on The Beach Boys' song "Good Vibrations". Five of these acts used the voices of the parodied musicians themselves: Tone Loc, Neil Sedaka, Little Richard, The Pointer Sisters and Chubby Checker. Most of the characters returned for the finale.
