'Spi-Dog' takes a bite out of 'Pirates'

Battle of the movie merchandisers

Geoffrey Inc.

This may come as shocking and disconcerting news to a certain other Craver , but Pirates of the Caribbean isn't the only movie merchandising franchise in the known universe. It's gotten some serious competition, for instance, from the Spider-Man marketing machine.

This week, the "Spi-Dog" followed the " Spider Spud ," the " Spidersapien " and other arachnid memorabilia dedicated to the man from Marvel. The latest of the "i-Dog" toy bot series, it seems to have officially pushed aside the " i-Cy " penguin--making it a doubly sad day for Caroline McCarthy (also known as "Gwin Gal").
