“If Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head are no longer male and female, does this mean no more tater tots?”

On February 25, 2021, the Hasbro toy company announced that “Mr. Potato Head” and “Mrs. Potato Head” would be the gender neutral “Potato Head.”

“If there’s no Mr and Mrs Potato Head, where do tater tots come from” was posted on Twitter by observivore on February 25, 2021. “If we no longer have Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head, how will we get Tater Tots?!?” was posted on Twitter by Michael Halasz later on February 25, 2021.

“I’m so confused. If Mr & Mrs. potato head are no longer male and female, does this mean there will be no more tater tots?” was posted on Twitter by “lovestheoutdoors #unitystrong #animallover” and almost simultaneously on Facebook by Dana Griffin-Newton on March 1, 2021.


Wikipedia: Mr. Potato Head
Mr. Potato Head is an American toy consisting of a plastic model of a potato “head” to which a variety of plastic parts can attach — typically ears, eyes, shoes, a hat, a nose, pants and a mouth. The toy was invented and developed by George Lerner in 1949 and first manufactured and distributed by Hasbro in 1952. Mr. Potato Head was the first toy advertised on television and has remained in production since. The toy was originally produced as separate plastic parts with pushpins that could be stuck into a real potato or other vegetable. However, due to complaints regarding rotting vegetables and new government safety regulations, Hasbro began including a plastic potato body within the toy set in 1964.

In 2021, Hasbro revised the overarching Mr. Potato Head brand, dropping the honorific in favor of the gender neutral Potato Head moniker, while retaining the individual characters of Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.

Wikipedia: Tater tots
Tater tots are grated potatoes formed into small cylinders and deep-fried, often served as a side dish. The name “tater tot” is a registered trademark of the American frozen food company Ore-Ida, but is often used as a generic term. “Tater” is short for potato.

So Mrs Potato Head just gets erased? Do tater tots now get a gender reveal ceremony?

Mr. Potato Head is now Potato Head. Can he still help raise tater tots?
