Comic Character Ads

Comic strip characters have served as spokesmen for many a product.  I've been collecting comic character advertising for quite a while and thought I'd share a few examples.  Today we have three print ads for Canada Dry Ginger Ale featuring the Terry and the Pirates characters -- all from the George Wunder era.  Below those are two ads for Kraft caramels starring Chet Gould's Dick Tracy and Daisy Mae from Al Capp's Li'l Abner.  I swear I have another Kraft ad featuring Abner himself, but can't find it at the moment.  Abner was also the star of a long running series of ads for Cream of Wheat.  I'll eventually scan some of those and share them here as well.
