Cookie O Puss
10 years ago
Holy cats! I haven't seen an old skool Carvel commercial in years! Cookie Puss (the non-St. Patrick's day version) was simply a whale mold put on its side with a cone slapped into the middle. Fudgie the Whale was for Father's Day.
Oh wait, SANTA is Fudgie on its side. Cookie Puss (and Cookie O Puss and Kewpie Puss) are the Same mold as the menorah cake.
I miss Tom Carvel's gravelly voice in those ads. It really was the epitome of local ads: disturbingly bad, yet charmingly earnest.
I grew up eating so much carvel ice cream cake that I am often amazed I do not have a layer of chocolate cookie crumbs running down the middle of me.
And you're sure you don't because...?
Ooooooooh, I likes me the chubby little cat salt and peppers! Squeeeee for the kitchen.
