    In the business of producing sapid canned soups, Campbell, by nominating its googly-eyed mascots, Dolly Dingle and Bobby Blake, edulcorated its advertising campaigns. The chubby-cheeked characters adjured parents to revictual their cupboards with Campbell's colourblocked cans, simultaneously imbuing the product with familial functionality, electing its soups as scrumptious, healthful alternatives to homecooked meals.

    My Horsman Dolly Dingle doll, wearing her linen chef ensemble and yellow milkmaid badge, poses with a die-cut Campbell's recipe booklet. In the final photo, multifarious Grace Wiederseim Drayton and Campbell collaborative paper ephemera are strewn across my hardwood floor.

    And, vicariously through the memory of Red Foxx (Fred Sanford), I shall in parting say, "'Mmm, mmm, good! Mmm, mmm, good! Campbell's soup is mmm, mmm, good!'"

      Amazing what you can learn on CW! Love this posting and your collection. Had no idea the names of the Campbell's soup kids. I love soup and who doesn't? lol Purchased a set of the Campbell's (Dolly and Bobby) soup spoons a few years back, and never thought to research their names. Just thought they were adorable to use. Now I know. Thanks, to you, MM!
