Toonfomercial: For all you Sunday armchair QB's: Remember Piels Beer? (1955)

It's one thing if a famous cartoon character (i.e. Mr. Magoo) is recruited to endorse beer. Fred Flintstone & Barney Rubble pitched Busch beer back in the day, but the folks at Piels came up with their own animated spokesmen.

Meet Harry & Bert Piel, as voiced by radio funny guys Bob Elliott & Ray Goulding.

Posted in memory of Bob Elliott (Harry Piel), who passed away recently.
