Wilsons franks

Scoop and Skip in an ad for Wilson's Frankfurts

Wilson's Meats Frank Jim

Muppets, Inc. produced a series of twenty four commercials for Wilson's Meats from 1965 to 1967, featuring two Muppets named Scoop and Skip.[1]

As in most Muppet "buddy" commercials (like those featuring Wilkins and Wontkins), one character favored the product while the other one did not. Unlike previous ads, the character' interest in the product varied from ad to ad.
