We know this mascot’s signature laugh, but probably don’t know his name!

“Poppin’ Fresh” may sound like a pseudonym for a rapper, but it’s actually the proper name for a character who has been on our televisions – and dinner tables – since 1965.

Best known as the Pillsbury Doughboy, the adorable piece of spokes-dough was created by the same agency that brought Tony the Tiger and the Jolly Green Giant. Besides his signature chef’s hat and neckerchief, the most recognizable Poppin’ Fresh trait has to be the giggle. The ticklish ball of dough lets out a laugh any time someone pokes him in the belly.

At one point according to the Pillsbury website, “Poppin’ Fresh” was getting 200 fan letters a week.
