When tied in with the fad of the time, you could find anything from a Beanie Baby to a Lion King toy lurking under your MSG fries and chicken-mush nuggets. Film fans of a certain age may remember the short-lived line of Batman inspired toys that linked 1992's Batman Returns to the golden arches, but you may not know the tragic tale behind the plastic fantastic nightmare.

    Who is Draco Malfoy?

    Who is Draco Malfoy?

    Over the years, the Harry Potter fandom has conjured up many different theories, like Professor Snape being a vampire or Sirius Black and Remus Lupin being secret lovers.
