The video below features the McDonalds Minions Despicable Me 2 Happy Meal Toys commercial.
After realising the error of his ways in the first movie, grumpy villain Gru has turned his back on a life of evil. He now lives a domesticated life, running around after his three adopted daughters Margo, Edith and Agnes.
His former instruments of doom have been converted into toys to entertain them and his fiendish mind is set on starting a jam and jelly-making business. His lovable little Minions help him with both tasks, though they often cause problems with their clumsiness.

- UK Minion Character List
Evil Minion Chomper was not released in the US/Canada or Australia. He doesn’t make any noises but he does open his mouth 180 degrees to achieve the ultimate chomp!
You activate Giggling Tim by shaking him up and down and he makes a giggling noise.
Tom Googly Eyes Grabber is activated by a button on his back which causes his arms to make a grabbing motion while his eyes move side to side.
Dave Gadget Grabber does not make any noises and his Orange Claw is operated by sliding a small lever at the back to open and close the jaws.
Stuart Babbler Grabber is operated by pressing a button in his back, which causes his arms to clap. He also mutters a short humorous minion phrase.
Oh no … Stuart has been transformed into an Evil Minion and he is out to make lots of noise. The Evil Minion Noise Maker has a an attachment on his back that when blown not horn sound &a,p; makes the party horn expand.
Unlike the Evil Minion Chomper, Stuart’s bushy hair as the Evil Minion Noise Maker is made out of plastic.
Jerry Whizzer Whistle has been described as the most ‘annoying’ Minion character as he carries a Green Whizzer Whistle, which kids love, but parents don’t.
We’re still not convinced why the character is named Babbling Tom as the noise he makes sounds much more like a giggle!
To activate Tim Giggle Grabber you press the button on his lower back and his arms open & close in a clapping motion, but he does not make any sound! We think ‘Tim Clapper’ would have been a better name!
I would like to say that we’ve saved the best for last but unfortunately Phil Jelly Whistle is a bit of a let down in the Despicable Me 2 Minions Collection.
Minion Phil has a slider whistle that is supposed to change the pitch as the jelly is moved in and out but after testing many, we’ve not yet found a whistle that works!

The Minions below were were not available to collectors in the UK. They are the Minions from the International Collection.
- Minion Character List
The Stuart Blaster character is carrying a blue “Fart Gun” and he is operated by pressing a button on his back to create a noise similar to Giggling Tim in the UK collection.
Similar to the Evil Minion Noise Maker in the UK the Evil Giggling Minion has large plastic sculpted hair. He’s operated by shaking him up & down to make a giggle noise.
Dave Banana Babbler was the 3rd Minion to be released in the US/Canada. He is operated by pressing his arm and says a babbling speech ending with “Banana“. We Love It.
Unlike many of the other Minions, Carl Rocket Skateboard does not have any additional features and does not speak, giggle or babble.
The Evil Minion Babbler is another one of our favourite characters. There is a switch on his back and you operate him by pressing the badge on the front of his dungarees.
Jerry Break Dancing is operated by a wind-up switch on his back. When he has been sufficiently wound up he proceeds to perform a break-dancing head spin.
The noticeable difference however is this Minion Stuart lights up when the switch in his back is pressed, just like he does in the film Despicable Me 2.
