“Poppin’ Fresh”, the Pillsbury Doughboy, is an advertising icon and mascot of
The Pillsbury Company, appearing in many of their commercials since his debut
on November 7, 1965. The Doughboy, a $16 doll made of clay, was originally
brought to live using the stop motion animation technique. Today, CGI is used
in the commercials. Character/Voice actor Paul Frees (below) was the first voice
of the Doughboy.
