The Pillsbury Doughboy is one of the most iconic corporate mascots in history. Poppin' Fresh has been in Pillsbury commercials for more than 50 years! His first commercial was on November 7, 1965.
He doesen't get the giggle inspiring poke in the stomach though, that came later. I have two classic Pillsbury Doughboy commercials for you. First his debut from 54 years ago today and another with a very young Maureen McCormick before her days at Marcia Brady on the Brady Bunch. Maureen and Poppin' Fresh even do a little duet.
Congratulations to Poppin' Fresh, the Pillsbury Doughboy, on his anniversary today!
