Toonfomercial: Remember Prof. Goodie & Wallace the Waffle Wiffer?

Sometime in the late 60's or early 70's, Jay Ward Productions introduced a new set of characters to promote Aunt Jemima waffles, part of the Quaker Oats family of breakfast products. Professor Goodie (Daws Butler, using his Huckleberry Hound voice) and Wallace, the Waffle Wiffer appeared in a few ads, but not enough to sustain lasting popularity. By the middle of the 70's, they were gone.

Here, Goodie hides in a diving bell to cook his waffles, but Wallace inevitably shows up. The closing narration is by----who else?----Paul Frees.
