Toons You Might've Missed: Remember Fresh-Up Freddie? (1957)

Ok, here's a little baby boomer memory.

7-Up once contracted with Disney to create an animated character to endorse their product. Fresh-Up Freddie made his debut in 1957, with his ad spots meant to air during episodes of Zorro. The seemingly ever-present Paul Frees voiced Freddie, not sure about the other characters in this sports-related ad.

Unfortunately, Freddie was history by the end of the 50's.
