As Copy Group head of Doner, the ad agency for Tootsie Roll in 1969-71, and as sole writer and creator of this commercial I wondered who Harry Ellsworth was and where he was standing in my office when the storyboard was blank. I looked up the Clio archives for 1970. He was the Client Supervisor, which meant he worked for Tootsie Roll and had the good judgement to approve the commercial as sh6wn. H6wever, he did not write or produce the commercial.
A great idea, brilliantly done!
Don't pay attenttion to the negative comments. As the guy who created, wrote and drew the characters in the original Mr Owl spot
(actually called "Mr. Cow") back in 1969, I think you did a great job and I got a real kick out of it!
Funny you should mention it. I just posted the original full 60 version on Youtube today, I can't find it, but it's there. I was the writer/artist. It was produced in 1969.
As the creator of this commerical, I can tell you it was produced in 1969, and won a Clio as best children's commercial in 1970, 1984 has no relavence to it whatsoever. It was originally a 60 second spot, which by the way, I just posted to Youtube today.
