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.

Each print carries an official Curio & Co. stamp and comes with an embossed Certificate of Authenticity. For more information on product materials, click here.

And the best thing about this print? All of the comforts of a family dinner, with none of the calories!

Founded in the early 1900s, Oberpfaffendorfer is a family-run company manufacturing packaged foods. With roots in German-speaking Switzerland, the company is as known for its family loyalty as it is for its packaged “comfort food.” Oberpfaffendorfer fully embraced the frozen food market in the 1950s, and some of its popular products include Neptune Nibblets and its Croquettes. The company slogan, “We’re a mouthful!” plays on the company’s difficult-to-pronounce name, as well as its reputation for hearty food.
