Morph, the UK Gumby

I never knew before about Morph, the forerunner of Wallace & Gromit. On first glance, he seems less weird and manic than either Gumby or W&G.

Follies of the Madmen #219


The connection? I can only assume that once upon a time, tennis rackets were restrung with sheep guts. But the image is certainly bizarre.

Fresh-Up Freddie

Disney characters have touted much merch. But rarely has the studio designed a character expressly as a corporate spokesman. The exception is Fresh-Up Freddie for 7-Up.

But what a godawful mess he was, all over the stereotype map.

In this non-embeddable commercial Freddie is manic like Woody Woodpecker or Daffy Duck. Then he does a Maurice Chevalier imitation. There are real humans and teenybopper birds.

Still manic, but now he's also a "teenager" Fred Astaire.

Some kind of socialite William Powell/Richie Rich.

Texas oil baron.

Now he talks like Speedy Gonzalez, as a bullfighter.


And last but not least, Freddie has a sex change.

That sure is a swell tune. Weird video, though.
