Tuffy Tooth

Feelin' nostalgic again. Hey, anyone remember Tuffy Tooth? He was an advertising character for Colgate Toothpaste back in the '70's. I remember getting the Tuffy Tooth Dental Kit as a kid and I lovvvvved it. Our Mum sent away for the kits for us kids and they came in the MAIL - so superexciting to get MAIL!!!

The kit contained toothpaste, a toothbrush, one of those little dental mirrors, a little Tuffy Tooth comic book, a Tuffy Tooth plastic bag puppet. And (according to the ad below...I don't really remember this part) a little Tuffy Tooth pin. AND - I especially adored those red dye tablets you chew to see where you missed brushing. Gross! FanTAStic!

Anyhoo...lookyhere, I found a little Tuffy Tooth memorabilia at Flickr. NOW do you remember him? And do you remember MFP?? What the heck was MFP anyway? Whatever happened to MFP??? WTF???

Roadside Pictures, who posted this Tuffy Tooth advertisement at Flickr, has the most amazing collection of vintage ads! Take a look-see - and you will view such gems as the 60's era Risqué Hostess Snow-Balls ad! Woooo wooooooo!!!!
