The television commercial made in the 1950s for Oberpfaffendorfer’s croquettes is adorable. The animated croquettes dance in a conga line around the plate, until one by one they dive off the fork into a waiting mouth. The last one turns to the camera to deliver the company’s slogan, “Oberpfaffendorfer – We’re a mouthful!”, playing on the company’s difficult to pronounce name as well as its reputation for hearty food. I’m sure you’ve seen it.
Well, this is the 1947 magazine ad that started it all. This reproduction of the original Oberpfaffendorfer ad is part of a rare edition of giclée prints.
And the best thing about this print? All of the comforts of a family dinner, with none of the calories!
