Chase Manhattan Bank storyboard title

Storyboard excerpt.[1]

Muppets, Inc. produced eight 20-second ads for the Puerto Rico branches of Chase Manhattan Bank in 1963.

The voices for the ads were recorded in Spanish by voice actors, and the Muppets lip-synched to the pre-recorded tracks. Additional English tracks were recorded later for the Trinidad market.

The characters in the ads included Kermit, Rowlf, Scoop, Fox, Chicken, Bear, Small Bear, King, Princess, Spanish Grocer and Dona Lola.

These commercials are available for viewing at The Paley Center for Media.
