Added by on 2022-05-01 It’s Shaturday morning and Joe, Nick, George and Caitlin McGurk from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library are “raisin hell” with 1988’s 2-D animated The California Raisin Show. We dive deep into the inexplicable craze that began with a TV commercial for raisins, led a series of collectible figurines from Hardee’s, and ended, among other things, California Raisin ear muffs. Plus, more Claymation commercials by Will Vinton, a slideshow of the weirdest raisin merch ever produced, and a stunning revelation about Caitlin’s favorite candy bar! Visit the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum in Columbus, Ohio at See Nick and Joe on tour with the Found Footage Festival.
