comment:  Not sure why the "Supplemental Register" was chosen for this property.  Seems to me that this application could have been filed on the Principal Register.  Wondering as well if all those goods listed as "in use" under Section 1A are in use...

In any case, here's hoping this film and merchandising property continues to be successful 

Time will tell...
