Every illustrator, designer, animator, and artist I know has a collection of these advertising icons. We all grew up watching them on our black and white TV's in the 50's and 60's. They sold us toothpaste, tuna fish and cereal. Charlie the Tuna, Tony the Tiger, Big Boy, Captain Crunch, the Pillsbury Doughboy and many more were turned into lovable objects for us to have. I found many at flea markets and of course eBay.
Native New Yorker Warren Dotz is a San Francisco-based author, consultant, and historian of popular culture. Has several books to his name like Ad Boy and Cat/Dog Food for Thought.
Enjoy the SFO exhibit if you are in the San Francisco area.

Super strong imagery with X-celent design to match. Caught my eye with a mere glance on a Google Search.
