[Comments] (2) That's capitalist coffee, you traitor!: Sumana's coworker Jacob has a Muppet obsession similar to mine. He sent us these 10-second coffee commercials from the 1950s featuring a proto-Kermit beating up on a proto-Waldorf for not liking the brand of coffee advertised. Sample commercial:

Proto-Kermit: Have some Willkins coffee?
Proto-Waldorf: No thanks, gimme Brand X!
[Proto-Kermit shoves an X-shaped branding iron into Proto-Waldorf's chest.]

I've never seen such violent Muppets.

Excellently harsh stuff. The proto-Waldorf seems to be called "Wontkins", splendidly.
