This question already has an answer here:

I remember watching a live-action TV show around the late 90's or early 00's. It centered around four main characters: a boy, a girl, a blue guy who might have been furry and a robot (I think). They would travel through different dimensions (I specifically remember the word dimensions being used). I think the premise was that the boy was looking for his dad(?).

I think I watched this show on the family channel so it may have aired on Disney in the US. I also distinctly remember there being a line of McDonald's toys based on the show where you could mix and match the parts from the different characters (possibly an ability that the boy had).

    You might want to have a hunt through my checklist here to see if there's anything else you can think of regarding the characters, names, situations, etc; meta.scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/9335/… – Valorum Jun 25 '16 at 18:54

I found your answer. Galidor: Defenders of the Outer Dimension. It's covered in What early-2000s show about dimension hopping has a character who can swap limbs? on this site. Nick's special ability allows him to exchange his limbs with other beings, an ability which works properly a very small percentage of the time and his father is missing.

It did indeed run on ABC Family, and there were licensed Lego toys (Lego partially funded it) which were offered in McDonalds Happy Meals:

  • Which, admittedly, does happen from time to time. :) By the way, thank you for editing my other answer, but I deleted it because Galidor was so obviously the actual answer. – FuzzyBoots Jun 25 '16 at 19:44

    I voted to undelete it. It's a reasonable match and it might help future searchers looking for something similar, but not the same... – Valorum Jun 25 '16 at 19:45
  • I guess that is true. – FuzzyBoots Jun 25 '16 at 19:46

    Oh my god; I have all but one of these lego figures. Never had any clue what they were from. – Wyatt8740 Jun 26 '16 at 0:12

The time frame and a boy traveling through multiple dimensions automatically made me think of Josh Kirby... Time Warrior! but that was a boy, a girl, a old professor, and a warrior, pursued by a man in power armor, and I don't think they did any McDonald's toys. Still, I figure it's worth proffering as a guess.
