Over two decades after Seinfeld ended, fans of the iconic sitcom can now bring their favorite gang of lovable eccentrics into their homes through Fisher-Price’s Seinfeld Little People Collector Set.
The set includes all four of the main gang, including Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer in apartment 5A and their booth in Monk’s Cafe. Jerry’s figure features white sneakers, his microphone and signature 90s hair. George has a checkered shirt and slacks and comes with a half-eaten éclair. Elaine comes dressed in a floral skirt and red jacket while Kramer comes with his yellow button down, holding a chicken wing.
The set boasts a multitude of Easter eggs only the most dedicated Seinfeld fans can spot. There are 18 in total, spread across the front and back of the box and on the figures themselves. These include Jerry’s puffy shirt, a loaf of marble rye bread, the Urban Sombrero and much more.
Created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, the NBC series premiered in 1989 and ran for nine seasons before coming to an end in 1999. The series centered on the titular comedian and his friends, Elaine Benes, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus; George Costanza, played by Jason Alexander; and Cosmo Kramer, played by Michael Richards. The series explored their personal lives and is often described as a show without a central story, theme or topic.
The show has often been listed among one of the greatest television shows ever created, though it has proven to be less popular among non-English speakers and so notably does not enjoy the same reputation as other sitcoms that premiered around the same time, such as Friends. Still Seinfeld earned a number of accolades over the course of its run, including three Golden Globes and 10 Primetime Emmys, among others.
While other shows and films have seen reunions, especially in the last few years, Seinfeld remains one of the biggest titles without one. Seinfeld himself previously dismissed the idea, telling Citi Field, as reported by People, “I like to go forward in life. I believe that going forward. I don’t know what we would do that would be good.” He then suggested that the cast themselves “wouldn’t be as good” in a reunion and that he was content with the work that exists in nine seasons of the Seinfeld series.
All nine seasons of Seinfeld are available for streaming on Netflix.
