- Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: In February of 2021, Hasbro announced that they were renaming the toy line from Mr. Potato Head to Potato Head, which made perfect sense since it had expanded so much from just the original character. The press release specifically stated that Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head themselves weren't going anywhere, but also touted inclusiveness and plans to introduce a non-gendered Potato family set. Naturally, media outlets ignored the first part and reported that Hasbro was stripping Mr. Potato Head of his gender, which drew a huge backlash, accusing Hasbro of Political Correctness Gone Mad, before Hasbro was forced to clarify things.
