In my mind, there’s a little nod to the Pilsbury Doughboy adverts here. Perhaps that chirpy chappy (below) was inspired by these even earlier adverts (above) ?

Poke me 9,000 times and I’ll explode !!

If you liked this post you can find more, by simply typing the words Modern Publicity into the search function on my blog. Happy findings.
