Mr. Peanut (Ad-Ventures)-Rafael Astarita-1937

In those pre-intellectual property trademark days, this was a fun little series, always done in rhyme, which starred the various characters from labels and logos of then-familiar Depression-era products. Normally, there's the Morton Salt girl, Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, some politically incorrect characters and a dozen others but this time you just get the Planters Peanuts crew.

The best Hallowe'en costume that I ever had was a papier-mâché Mr Peanut, made by my mother at my request.
