I had no idea Mr. Whipple was even alive before this news. I thought he died years ago.
((Actor Dick Wilson, who earned an enduring place in U.S. pop culture for his TV commercial role as Mr. Whipple, the nervous grocer who warned customers "Please, don't squeeze the Charmin" in toilet-paper ads, has died at age 91. ))
Yeah, he was famous for his Mr. Whipple character. The guy would get pissed when people would squeeze the Charmin toiletpaper. He did this character for years. I remember going into the grocery store and wanting to squeeze the toilet paper. So, one day I squeezed the Charmin, but Mr. Whipple never showed up to chew me out. By the way, that is some soft toilet paper.
((He played the role in more than 500 Charmin spots, running from 1964 through 1985, turning the Mr. Whipple character into an advertising icon among the likes of the Maytag repairman and Rosie the waitress of Procter & Gamble's Bounty paper towels.))
From 64 to 85, that's a long time worrying about people squeezing toilet paper.
Here are a few videos
Mr. Whipple has an assistant help him out: Got to love the sitcom acting in this one.
Robby the Robot shows up: Nothing like cross promotion...
Here are a couple ads: That crazy Whipple.
His plan is foiled again: He's like the Coyote in those roadrunner cartoons.
RIP Mr. Whipple
