The Muppets: nothing new

Nobody believes me, but this is where the Muppets got started: in commercials. They did two-or-three-second ads
for some kind of coffee, very violent, and these. This is either a prototype for Big Bird or Mr. Snufalopagus. The voice sounds familiar. I remember those La Choy noodles! You could blend them with melted chocolate and miniature marshmallows to make a sort of no-bake drop cookie. I did look for them years later and they weren't there.
