How the Warner Bros store went belly up

I still have a pair of Taz swim trunks I bought from there, my favorite trunks ever.


I worked at the Mall of America store in the mid 90s. It was filled with fun stuff besides the merch–a “playland” style Marvin the Martian rocketship for kids that included working switches and buttons, a huge video wall, and a gallery where you could buy WB animation cells and prints.

I met Rob Paulsen (Yakko) and Jess Harnell (Wakko) a year prior at the store during a special signing event, too. They didn’t have a ton of those, but when they did, it was a lot of fun.


I still own my Marvin the Martian denim jacket and my denim vest with most of the Looney Tunes characters embroidered on the back.

The fact that Warner Bros Studio Stores are no more “makes me very angry.”
