Pillsbury doughboy free coloring pages to print

The Pillsbury Doughboy was created by Rudy Perz, a copywriter for Pillsbury’s longtime advertising agency Leo Burnett. Perz was sitting in his kitchen in the spring of 1965, under pressure to create an advertising campaign for Pillsbury’s refrigerated dough product line (biscuits, dinner rolls, sweet rolls, and cookies). His copywriter, Carol H. Williams, imagined a living doughboy popping out of a Pillsbury Crescent Rolls can and wrote the campaign, “Say Hello to Poppin’ Fresh Dough”. Originally named “Jonathan Pillsbury,”[citation needed] the dough boy was given a scarf, a chef’s hat, and two big blue eyes to distinguish him from the rolls, as well as a blush and a soft, warm chuckle when poked in the stomach. The Doughboy was originally designed by Milt Schaffer and brought to life using stop motion clay animation. Today, CGI is used. The first CGI commercial was broadcast in 1992 and was directed by Tim Johnson who at that time was working for PDI.
