10 Puppets that Made it Big on Television


Farfel and Danny O'Day

Farfel, the long-eared shaggy dog, and Danny O'Day were puppets who appeared in many TV commercials for Nestle's Quik. Danny O'Day sang "N-E-S-T-L-E-S, Nestle's makes the very best . . ." and Farfel responded with "Chawk-lit!" Along with ventriloquist Jimmy Nelson, the trio reached national prominence in the 1950s when they joined the Texaco Star Theater starring Milton Berle.
