Museum of Pez Memorabilia

Character heads were added to Pez dispensers in 1952. Currently there are hundreds of different models (there is some disagreement on the total). Pez-lover Gary Doss has most of them, ordered in neat rows in his Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia. www.spectrumnet.com/pez
