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.

Title list

  • Blob
  • Brand X
Skip asks storeowner Scoop to give him Brand X canned ham instead of Wilson's Certified Ham. Scoop says he won't like it, but Skip is insistent. Scoop literally brands an X on Skip's stomach, claiming that with Wilson's Certified, "you never get burned".
  • Give Me a Bite[2]
  • Leaning Tower
The duo are in Italy because, according to Skip, "there's nothing leaner than Wilson's Certified Bacon!"
  • Mad Scientist
Mad scientist Skip has developed a bacon as good as Wilson's Certified, much to Scoop's disbelief. Skip's thesis is proven wrong upon biting into a strip of bacon and exploding.
  • Make Me a Hot Dog[2]
  • Splasho the Great
  • Survey
Scoop, conducting an impartial survey, convinces Skip to say that he eats Wilson's Certified Franks by whacking him with a signpost.
  • Rocket Launch
Skip wonders if eating Wilson's Certified Franks will make him an astronaut. He finds that they do give him a lift.
  • The Champ
Scoop endorses Wilson's Certified Franks by claiming that "the Champ" (Skip) gets his brute strength from eating them. Skip points out that he doesn't eat them, and ends up crushed by his barbell.
  • Parachutes
Scoop doesn't fall for Wilson's Certified Cold Cuts, but he does after Skip cuts his parachute strings.
