Yep. It's a little-known fact, but the beloved Pillsbury icon nearly lost his contract in the 50's because of uncontrollable flatulence. At the time, when all television was live, it was impossible to dub the "tee-hee!" sound over the farting noise that naturally came after the Doughboy was poked in the stomach. Because of the farting, Pillsbury was unable to run any commercials during what was known as "family time", which meant that they couldn't advertise on the popular variety shows of the day, like Ed Sullivan, nor during such hits as the "Honeymooners" (this was especially bitter for the Doughboy, since Art Carney was known on the Honeymooner's set to be quite a farter himself). Pillsbury's inability to use its most effective little advertiser during the most effective time slots almost led the company to drop the Doughboy in favor of a new spokesman, tentatively named "Little Yeasty". The Doughboy took this situation personally, and fell into a deep depression. He began drinking heavily, and ate only pork rinds and snack foods, which didn't help the farting. Doughboy took out his frustrations on Little Yeasty, eventually going to the extreme of shooting out Little Yeasty's tires and running over his dog. (These incidents, along with Pillsbury's inability to commit to a long-term contract with Little Yeasty, led Yeasty to abandon show business. He eventually moved to Alaska, where he worked on a commercial fishing boat until a tragic accident in the mid-60's.) Advancements in television technology, especially the ability to pre-tape commercials, paved the way for Doughboy's return to prime-time in the late 1950's. After that, he was contractually prevented from appearing in public for fear that someone would poke him and find that the cute "tee-hee!" was not in fact the actual noise that he made. Apparently, his appearance on the above-linked website has been quite a problem for Pillsbury, which is reportedly contemplating legal action against Doughboy.

Known to friends as Brown-n-Serve, Fresh was an avid gardener and tennis player. Fresh was buried in one of the largest funeral ceremonies in recent years. Dozens of celebrities turned out including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Aunt Jemima, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Skippy. The grave side was piled high with flours as longtime friend Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, describing Fresh as a man who "never knew how much he was kneaded." Fresh rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with many turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes -- conned by those who buttered him up. Still, even as a crusty old man, he was a roll model for millions. Fresh is survived by his second wife. They have two children and another bun in the oven. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
