Carvel Commercials. Who Will Win? Your Voice Counts.

And speaking of Fudgie the Whale (see last post) are you guys familiar with Carvel and it's commercials? They were huge on the East Coast in the 70's and 80's. Here are the top three.


Which one do you like? And why?


Cookie Puss and Hug Me The Bear (listen for the slide whistle)




Fudgie The Whale (Have a Happy Day Dad)





Cookie O'Puss (high tech and space age as shit! And excellent use of the word "Puss" in a food product)

One year for my daughter's birthday my THEN mother-in-law called the local Carvel and asked if she could "get one of those pussy cakes."

*insert hysteria here

On a side note, if there was such a thing I would weigh 600 pounds.

Well obviously anything with a slide whistle is the winner!

Cookie O Puss! 1) for the name, and 2) it's basically a dick and balls with a form around it. Awww yeah!

Oh so THAT'S where Fudgy the Whale comes from! My kids' summer camp was having them sing all about him for awhile. I vaguely remember the carvel commercials, but hadn't made the connection.

We had a Carvel in Jacksonville but I never got a cake from there. I always thought the guy's voice sounded like a creepy perve uncle or something like that.

Hey Jill thanks for visiting my blog.

Chris - I love that voice.
