"Jingle, jangle, coins when they jingle make such a lovely sound.” - Mr Quincy Magoo as Ebeneezer Scrooge. Ahhh, those haunting words from Mr Magoo's Christmas Carol. Byers will never let me forget them.
Cartoonist R.O. Blechman did this Christmas illustration for a greeting card. It was later the inspiration for the animated CBS Television Network 1966 Christmas "greeting". Click on the image below to view the video.
Blechman also did the award winning Alka Seltzer commercial in 1967 showing a man and his own stomach sitting opposite each other in chairs, having an argument moderated by their therapist in a voiceover. The stomach (voiced by Gene Wilder) accuses the man of purposely trying to irritate it. The man accuses his stomach of complaining too much about the foods he likes. The therapist suggests Alka-Seltzer, and further suggests that the two must take care of each other. The closing words are of the stomach saying to the man: "Well, I'll try - if you will".
