11:57 pm - this is all I got, folks...
This commerical, which usually aired during Wonderama!, was one of the highlights of my childhood weekends, beyond singing in folk Mass. How much do I dig the shameless E.T. bandwagoneering [note the wily substitution of "celestial person" for "extra-terrestrial"], the cruddy special effects, and the tinny, neo-futuristic brogue of seasonal delicacy Cookie O' Puss? Fudgie the Whale can spout off all he wants (yuk yuk) but HE never inspired the Beastie Boys to sing his praises while sampling their own prank calls to Carvel:

Where has YouTube been all my fuckin' life?

Have you heard Patton Oswalt's rant about Carvel commercials? Funniest fucking thing ever. Tom Carvel "sounds like Tom Waits gargling chunks of hot asphalt" and the broken-legged leprechaun cake made by the slightly altered Fudgie tin is "Patty O'Cripply, wishing you St. Patrick's Day wishes as he drags himself across the forest floor."
