Nissincupnoodles

Nissin Cup Noodles is a line of instant ramen-style noodle meals produced by Nissin Foods. Beginning in 1995, Jim Henson's Creature Shop produced a series of commercials, to be broadcast in Japan. The spots starred a family of comedic animatronic cavemen, headed by Father. In each commercial, Father would attempt to rustle up mammoth, sabretooth tiger, or some other item for dinner. He would always fail, and his wiser family generally displayed a preference for Cup Noodles. The campaign received multiple Clio Awards in the Gold, Silver and Bronze classes.
