What was the deal with Funny Face drink mix? The year was 1964 and my older sister explained to me that Kool-Aid was nothing but powdered flavoring and food coloring mixed together. To make it taste good you have to add sugar to it. I think the directions called for one cup of sugar to two quarts of water. But we always added more sugar. Kids!

That's why my mom always complained about the price of sugar. Our family could empty a pitcher of Kool-Aid with a single meal. Packets of Kool-Aid only cost 5 cents and folks bought them buy the handful at the stores. Sugar was a different matter, 5 lb bag or a 10 lb bag, my mom always complained about the price.




So Pillsbury, which had recently entered the artificial sweetener market for adults around 1961 or 1962 did the logical thing and PRESTO! Artificially flavored, artificially pre-sweetened powdered drink mixes called Funny Face.

Crazy? Not to my mom. Every parent I knew in my neighborhood went "Funny Face" overboard. It was like some kind of miracle to adults. Guess in 1964 saving a few pennies was a big deal, and lordy did Pillsbury know it!





Radio, magazines, newspapers and TELEVISION! It was a Funny Face attack. The stuff was everywhere and so were the promos for it. Funny Face was made up of six flavors. There was Goofy Grape, Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry, Freckle Face Strawberry, Loud Mouth Lime, Chinese Cherry, and Injun Orange.

Look on the back of each packet of Funny Face and there was a special promo for the kids.
My favorite was the mail-in coupons for a coloring book, but there were tons of other toys you could get with the proper number of empty package labels. And my mom collected so many Funny Face coupons she could pick up a few packs for free at the store.





Can you say successful product launch? Thanks to consumer response Pillsbury was ready to go nationwide with Funny Face in 1965 and wanted to add a new flavor in the process. Sure you can get the folks in product development to whip up something, but Pillsbury saw a marketing dream.

Pillsbury posted a contest to have kids in the initial launch market regions make up a new flavor. I joined in and I'll never forget it.

For one week the local newspaper printed the Official Funny Face New Flavor Entry Form. It was a 4 x 8 newspaper ad with complete instructions that you cut out and with your crayons and a bit of artistic flair use the space provided to make a new flavor label with a new cartoon character, flavor inclusive name of the character and your ID info in case you won.





Being the artist of the family my older sister "volunteered" to help me with my entry. Yes I still remember what we came up with. Are you ready? Drumroll, "Crazy Cranberry" with googly eyes and "Punchy Pineapple" complete with a black-eye.

Of course I didn't win! Like what were the odds? At least my sister was kind enough to wait a few weeks to tell me my flavors were lame. So what flavor won? Call my lawyer cuz somebody's done me wrong - "Lefty Lemon!"





Oh pleease! My dad said the contest was an advertising stunt because Pillsbury already had a new flavor developed and ready to go long before any kid sent in a contest entry. So chalk it up to one of life's great lessons.

What's the difference between Lefty Lemon and Loud Mouth Lime? After an extensive side-by-side family taste test, no difference at all. But oh the color! One was yellow the other greenish-yellow.

Should've called my lawyer.

Funny Face is fun to drink, 
The one to drink when you’re having fun! 
Funny Face is fun to drink. 
Fun to drink for everyone! 

That’s how the jingle went in the early television commercials — and it was true. Kids really found Funny Face fun to drink! Of course, zany characters and great mail-away premiums didn’t hurt any, either.

In the early Sixties, Kool-Aid was the undisputed powdered-drink-mix king. However, consumers were unhappy over the amount of sugar used in the preparation of a pitcher of Kool-Aid. In an effort to combat this dissatisfaction companies were searching for a substitute for sugar, an alternate that arrived in the form of an artificial sweetener named sodium cyclamate. Pillsbury processed sodium cyclamate into the product Sweet*10 in 1962, which allowed them to create foods that could be advertised as “sugar free” and “artificially sweetened.” With sugar eliminated, moms approved and sales rose on these products.

Encouraged by the promise of Sweet*10. Pillsbury decided to challenge Kool-Aid with its own powdered drink mix. In 1963, Pillsbury hired Campbell Mithun Advertising to design a face for its product. Inspired by his daughter, Creative Director Hal Silverman dreamed up the Funny Face characters. “l actually created them for my daughter, Jill, who was about four years old at the time,” Silverman wrote in a post on the Retroland website in 2013.

“My nickname for her was Freckle Face—and from that beginning, all the characters just fell into place. Needless to say, my daughter—and all her friends—had a wonderful time playing with the names, and pretending to be the characters,”

Hal Silverman

While Silverman sketched out the initial designs for the characters, the final art used on the packages was drawn by Lowell Herrera.

The original six characters (and flavors) hit the stores in 1964, consisting of Freckle Face Strawberry, Goofy Grape, Loud-Mouth Lime, Rootin’ Tootin’ Raspberry, Chinese Cherry, and Injun Orange. Don’t remember the last two? That’s because they were replaced the next year by Choo Choo Cherry and Jolly Olly Orange. Reports are mixed as to whether there were complaints from the public or if it was strictly an internal decision, but Chinese Cherry and Injun Orange were deemed inappropriate and offensive.

“At the time,” Silverman explained, “l was naive enough not to realize that the names Chinese Cherry and Injun Orange could be hurtful to Chinese and Native Americans. My sincere apologies, at this late date, to anyone I offended.” Pillsbury employed an aggressive marketing strategy to launch the new drink mix. 

While the Kool-Aid Man had to represent every flavor of Kool-Aid, Pillsbury provided different cartoon characters for each flavor, making it easy for children to spot their favorites. Stores were encouraged to use specially designed stands to display Funny Face packets. Advertisements were placed in the Sunday funnies in newspapers nationwide and in the children’s magazine Jack and Jill. Commercials aired on television with Goofy Grape and the gang introducing themselves to young shoppers. Additionally, stores gave out promotional plastic finger puppets of the six characters along with purchases of Funny Face packets. 

Sales were strong enough to encourage Pillsbury to expand its marketing campaign in 1965. Chinese Cherry and Injun Orange took their final bow, and a new flavor joined the group—Lefty Lemon. New promotional products were offered, including a mail-away 16-page fun book and in-store paper character masks. Contests were advertised with 10,000 Goofy Grape watches and 10,000 store drink stands up for grabs. A set of six pillows made in the images of the original six characters were made and given exclusively to Pillsbury executives.

Funny Face ads continued in the Sunday comics and a new television commercial aired with Choo Choo Cherry and Jolly Olly Orange (but if you watch carefully, you can still see Chinese Cherry and Injun Orange atop the drink stand). One in-store poster took an indirect swipe at Kool-Aid, showing the seven cartoon figures above the slogan “Funny Face is fun to drink” and atop the sign sat the statement “Notice how… when products compete, they get better.” 

Evidently the strategy was working, as Pillsbury offered new promotions in 1966. Two more contests were held with 10,000 drink stands (redesigned to show the new cherry, orange, and lemon characters) and 10,000 Funny Face Fun Houses up for grabs. While not an official member of the Funny Face family, chocolate and strawberry Moo Juice hit the shelves as Pillsbury’s way to jazz up milk.

Probably the most interesting promotion was an ad in the Sunday color section offering fans a seven-inch, 33 1/3 RPM record titled “Goofy Grape Sings.” For 50 cents and one Funny Face label, you could listen to Goofy Grape and the gang sing nine different silly songs. The voices for the record (as well as the television commercials) were provided by the versatile Paul Frees, who you might recognize from his work on various Jay Ward Productions cartoons (like Rocky and Bullwinkle and George of the Jungle) and Rankin-Bass animated holiday features.

The product line continued to expand in 1967 when Captain Black Cherry joined the group and Loud-Mouth Punch replaced Loud-Mouth Lime (who temporarily merged with Lefty Lemon for the short-lived Lefty Lemon Lime). In an effort to reach more mature consumers, Pillsbury tested the waters with Tart N’ Tangy Lemon and Tart N’ Tangy Orange. The Thirst Fighters premiered this year with Baron Von Lemon, Crash Orange, and Sir Reginald Lime Lime—three drink mixes aimed at adults that used more sophisticated humor in the advertising.

Promotions scaled back to only one contest, with a prize of one in 5,000 Loud-Mouth Lime Walkie Talkies and one Sunday newspaper advertisement mail-away. The gimmick this time was that in exchange for a written request and the completed ad form, you would receive a Funny Face Fun Book and letter from either Choo Choo Cherry, Freckle Face Strawberry, Goofy Crape, Lefty Lemon, or Rootin’ Tootin’ Raspberry. Pillsbury seemed comfortable with Funny Face’s niche in the grocery stores, as its 1968 promotions dropped to just two mail-aways—one for a Funny Face Cook Book and another for a drink stand display.

Then, disaster stuck when a 1966 study by Abbott Laboratories was made public. The study stated that sodium cyclamate caused “chronic toxicity” in test animals. This was followed by a report (also by Abbott Laboratories) in 1969 that cyclamate-saccharin mixtures commonly used as artificial sweeteners in food products (like Funny Face) resulted in a rise in bladder cancer in rats. This resulted in the banning of cyclamates in the United States.

It was revealed later that during the study tumors only appeared in eight out of 240 rats (approximately 3%) and that the amount of sweetener fed to the rats was proportionately equal to an adult drinking 550 cans of diet soda daily. Further testing, some as recent as the year 2000, have been unable to prove any connection between cyclamates and cancer, yet the ban remains.

The Funny Face formula was quickly remade. At first, packets read “No cyclamate—just add sugar”, but it was not long before packets with sugar added hit the market. In 1969, in an effort to recover from the huge revenue loss due to the cyclamate scare, Pillsbury came out with two new promotions. The first was a mail-away for Funny Face pillows. Send the form with and five presweetened or ten unsweetened packages and a dollar in exchange for the pillow of your choice—either Choo Choo Cherry, Freckle Face Strawberry, Goofy Grape, or Lefty Lemon.

The second promotion (a major brainstorm) was none other than the fondly remembered Funny Face mugs! In exchange for seven drink packets, Pillsbury sent four mugs—Choo Choo Cherry, Freckle Face Strawberry, Goofy Grape, and Lefty Lemon, This proved so popular that five more mugs were added later and the promotion stayed available for the remainder of Funny Face’s life in the supermarket.

In 1970, Pillsbury was still hurting from the cyclamate reports, so free packets of Funny Face were given away at Union 76 gas stations with each fill-up to help bring in new consumers, Unfortunately. the loss of cyclamate took away the company’s major edge over Kool-Aid, so over the next decade, Pillsbury had to rely on the popularity of the characters and the promotional premiums. Contests had ceased, but the mail-away offers continued.

Funny Face promotions sometimes appeared in the Sunday funnies supplements of newspapers, including these two, from 1967 and 1973, respectively. Another thing that Funny Face had over Kool-Aid was the introduction of the two-quart can of powdered mix that made over 15-quarts of liquid refreshment.

New television commercials were made to broaden the appeal to consumers. No more silly characters telling children that Funny Face was fun to drink. The new approach was aimed at teens and adults, showing older boys playing basketball on a hot summer day while Goofy Grape and gang sang, “When you’re hot, you’re hot. We got a lot, a lot!” Yes, Funny Face is cooling and thirst-quenching! 

The Funny Face Walkers wandered onto the scene in 1971. For seven presweetened or 14 unsweetened packs, four Walkers (Choo Choo Cherry, Goofy Crape, Jolly Olly Orange, and Rootin’ Tootin’ Raspberry) arrived in the mail (later, each Walker was available individually). The Walkers were great toys, designed with wobbly legs and feet that walked when pulled by a string. They came with a plastic coin that acted as a weight.

Tie one end of the string to the Walker and the other end to the coin. Then release the coin over a ledge (like the edge of a table) and the Walker wobbled as it was pulled by the string. Better pay attention, though, for once the Walker reached the ledge, it plummeted to the ground. Made of cheap plastic and held together by thin pegs in short brackets, the Walkers often broke when they hit the floor. 

To encourage mothers to buy Funny Face, Pillsbury added Vitamin C to the drink mixes in 1972. New flavors Chilly Cherry Cola and Rah Rah Root Beer were added to the line-up. For mail-aways, you could get the plastic Goofy Grape kite through one ad, or send off for a Funny Face Club Fun Kit—complete with a membership card, a fun book, a tab button, a balloon, iron-ons, and stickers.

In 1973 you could order the third variation on the Goofy Grape pitcher, a red or purple Bianchi folding bike. and Funny Face Plush Pals Pillows (a set of three—Choo Choo Cherry, Goofy Grape, and Lefty Lemon). A new Goofy Grape watch was offered in 1974, as were mugs of new flavors Rudy Tutti Frutti and With- It Watermelon (Pistol Pink Lemonade also arrived at this time, but did not warrant a mug).

The first Pillsbury company crossover occurred in 1975 when Goofy Grape met Poppin Fresh, the Pillsbury Doughboy, on a 13 x 13-inch canvas back pack—available for off for a Funny Face Club Fun Kit (consisting of a certificate, a fun book, and a Goofy Grape tab button), Funny Straws, Jolly Olly only $195 and one label from Pillsbury Slice ‘N Bake Cookies and one can label (or three packages) of Funny Face Drink Mix.

Also available that year was a Goofy Grape sweatshirt (child sizes only) and Funny Face character iron-ons that were found free inside packages and cans of drink mix. The mugs continued to be offered over the next few years, just as the iron-ons continued to be found in packages and cans. The only new premium to be offered by Pillsbury came in 1977 with the mail-away offer for plastic molds to be used for homemade frozen “popsicles.”

Pillsbury’s Funny-Face Drink Mix

funny faceIn 1965, our country wasn’t quite as culturally sensitive as it is today. That year, Pillsbury tried to cut into the profits of Kool-Aid with their own pre-sweetened drink mix, Funny-Face.

Each package of Funny-Face was to be added to two quarts of cold water, no sugar needed. Funny Face was potently sweetened with cyclamates, and the package weighed little more than a similar package of unsweetened Kool-Aid.

I’ve got memories of this stuff way in the back of my head. I probably caught the tail-end of it in the early seventies. If I could get Mom to pick up Funny-Face and a bottle of bubbles during our trip to the store, it was a good afternoon.

The original flavors included Goofy Grape, Chinese Cherry, Loud Mouth Lime, Lefty Lemon, Injun Orange, Freckle Faced Strawberry, and Rootin’ Tootin’ Raspberry.

There were pictures of the character on the front of the packages. The characters were eventually deemed demeaning to their related ethnic groups, and a re-naming spree kicked in. Chinese Cherry became Choo Choo Cherry and Injun Orange became a portly Jolly Olly Orange. Lefty Lemon and Loud Mouth Lime were combined to make Lefty Lemon-Lime.

funny faceSo let’s see if we can identify who was being offended with these playful powdered drink mascots.

Goofy Grape = goofy people
Chinese Cherry = Chinese people
Loud Mouth Lime = loud people
Lefty Lemon = left-handed people
Injun Orange = Native Americans
Freckle Faced Strawberry = people with freckles
Jolly Olly Orange = fat people
Rootin’ Tootin’ Raspberry = cowboys

How dare they???

Anyway, banning of cyclamates changed the Funny-Face formula. First was to sell it unsweetened, but people complained that they’d rather buy Kool-Aid. By the time Pillsbury added sugar to the mix, Kool-Aid had already regained the marginal lost market. (“Hey, Kool-Aid!”)

Vintage - Funny Face Drink Mix Commercial

Who doesn’t remember hot, summer afternoon thirst being quenched when your mom stirred up a big pitcher of lemonade, Kool-Aid, or…Funny Face? Though the juice mix might have fallen out of favor (flavor?) since the 70s, characters such as Goofy Grape, Loud-Mouth Lime, Rootin’ Tootin’ Raspberry, and Freckle Face Strawberry are still near and dear to collectors’ hearts.

Introduced by Pillsbury in 1964, calorie-free Funny Face claimed to be “already sweetened – without sugar!” Too good to be true, right? Also in 1964, calcium cyclamate was banned from food – and Funny Face temporarily went off the market. No worries though, Pillsbury scientists went back to the lab, reworked the formula with saccharine and Funny Face was back.

Similar to another famous drink mix, Funny Face was marketed by the cute characters associated with each flavor. Pillsbury targeted youngsters using a lot of premiums, such as plastic mugs featuring the fruity characters that came free with seven empty packages, as well as advertising in the Sunday comic section of the newspaper. They also held contests to win other special Funny Face merchandise, such as drink stands, wrist watches, walkie-talkies and even a fun house!

Though you can no longer taste the refreshment was Funny Face drink mix, you can still get a hold of some of those premiums – one of which is currently being auctioned off by Hake’s Americana and Collectibles.  A complete set of Funny Face masks feature Goofy Grape, Loud-Mouth Lime, Rootin’ Tootin’ Raspberry, Freckle Face Strawberry, Injun Orange and Chinese Cherry as well as a Fun Book with a “Race to the Flavor Factory” game. A set like this is very rare for two reasons: one, Injun Orange and Chinese Cherry were renamed Jolly Olly Orange and Choo-Choo Cherry shortly after they were introduced because of complaints from ethnic groups; and two, this set is from the private collection of premium creators Sam & Gordon Gold.

The show that counts as two servings of fruit! note Back row: Captain Black Cherry, Lefty Lemon, Choo Choo Cherry. Front row: Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry, Loud Mouth Lime, Goofy Grape, Jolly Ollie Orange, Freckle Face Strawberry

Funny Facewas an attempt to create an animated franchise in 2009. Its characters are the mascots of the Funny Facedrink mix, sold from the 1960s to the 1990s.

Despite the fact that the cartoon never came to be, a collection of one minute shorts was created for the franchise,which can be seen here.

Not to be confused with the 1950s musical starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire, or a 1971 sitcom on CBS starring Sandy Duncan.


This show provides examples of:

  • Amusing Injuries: Most of the characters are squashed, beaten up, or suffer pratfalls through the episodes.
  • Animated Adaptation: An attempt of one, based on the advertising campaign. While the show never came to be, the shorts were released online as a pitch, along with a revival of the characters via advertising for flavored dried cranberries.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Soft spoken Freckle Face Strawberry can lay down a nasty beating when upset, as shown through a punching bag clown.
  • Black Dude Dies First: The watermelon, though it doesn't last.
  • Canon Foreigner: Top Banana and Bad Apple were not in the drink mix franchise, being created for the show.
  • The Comically Serious: Top Banana, who thinks he's above the others, thus causing him to be used as the butt of jokes in the end.
  • The Ditz: Goofy Grape and Lefty Lemon.
  • Family-Friendly Firearms: Averted, the six-shooters that Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry owns contains real bullets.
  • Floating Limbs: An extreme version; the characters don't even have hands or feet. Anything they are holding or using simply floats beside them.
  • Gender Flip: Choo Choo Cherry and Freckle Face Strawberry were male in the original product line.
  • High-Pressure Emotion: Captain Black Cherry blew steam out of his body after getting angry with Freckle Face Strawberry in "Daydream Crashers" for ruining his daydream.
  • The Hyena: Jolly Ollie Orange.
  • Idiosyncratic Wipes: While not an actual wipe, each vignette ends with a purple splat of "fruit juice" covering the screen.
  • In a World…: Goofy Grape purposefully uses this, along with a Don LaFontaine impression, in the episode "Drip Drip Drip". The others are irritated by it, thanks to it cutting into their concentration.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Bad Apple.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: The main cast has ten characters alone.
  • Musical Episode: The episode "Big Musical" has both Lefty Lemon and Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry singing their redtion of "Sunshine, Lollipops And Rainbows".
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry emulates John Wayne.
  • No Indoor Voice: Loud Mouth Lime.
  • Now Which One Was That Voice?: No voice actors were credited for the shorts. Though the only possible actors involved are Joey D'Auria (Captain Black Cherry and Loud Mouth Lime), Phil Lollar (Top Banana, Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry, the Pinapple Newscaster in "The Fly 1" and ) Nathan Carlson (Lefty Lemon and Goofy Grape) Susan Balboni (Choo Choo Cherry) and Danny Katiana (Jolly Ollie Orange and Bad Apple)
  • The Pig-Pen: Bad Apple. He's rotten brown and is a target for fruit flies.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Top Banana.
  • Talk Like a Pirate: Captain Black Cherry.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Characters get squished, eaten, chopped, and cored, only to turn up completely fine the next episode.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Choo Choo Cherry and Freckle Face Strawberry, respectively.
  • Two Girls to a Team: In the main cast of ten, there are only two girls.
  • Unfortunate Ingredients: The original drink contained cyclamate.
  • Voice Changeling: Goofy Grape is a master at impressions, from various sounds like a train or a bird, to different voices, including a Don LaFontaine impression.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Top Banana's terrified of monkeys. Doesn't help that Choo Choo Cherry has a pet ape...

Retro Pillsbury Funny Face Drink Mix Commercial AD Compilation 1960s \u0026 1970s

Funny Face (drink mix)

Funny Face was a brand of powdered drink mix originally made and publicly sold by the Pillsbury Company[A] from 1964 to 1994.[5] and in limited productions (mainly in the Midwestern and New England regions of the U.S.A.) from 1994 to 2001. The brand was introduced as competition to the similar (and more familiar and better-selling)[5]Kool-Aid made by Kraft Foods. The product came in assorted flavors sweetened with artificial sweetener,[B] and was mixed with water to make a beverage.

The product name "Funny Face" was based on the packaging and advertising created by Hal Silverman of the Campbell Mithun advertising agency.[7][8] Each flavor was designated by a cartoon character with a presumably amusing face. The original flavors, and their names, were Goofy Grape, Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry, Freckle-Face Strawberry, Injun Orange, and Chinese Cherry. These last two, being ethnic stereotypes generally considered offensive by then, were soon renamed to Jolly-Olly Orange and Choo Choo Cherry.[5] Additional flavors were added later, including Captain Black Cherry, Chilly Cherry Cola, Lefty Lemonade (and Lefty Lemon-Lime), Loud Mouth Lime (and Loud Mouth Punch), Pistol Pink Lemonade, Rah-Rah Root Beer, Rudi Tutti-Frutti, Tart Lil' Imitation Lemonade, Tart 'N' Tangy Lemon, With-It Watermelon,[5] Top Banana,[9] and Chug-a-Lug-a Chocolate,[10] the latter intended to be mixed with milk rather than water.[11]

The mix was sweetened with calcium cyclamate. Cyclamates and their salts (including calcium cyclamate and sodium cyclamate) were banned in the United States in 1970;[12] Calcium cyclamate was briefly replaced by saccharin, which proved unpopular, after which the product was offered unsweetened.[11]

Various promotional tchotchkes were offered as premiums in support of the brand, such as mugs and pitchers bearing the likeness of the various cartoon faces associated with each flavor.[11][9][13][10] A series of children's books such as "How Freckle Face Strawberry Got His Name" and similar titles were published.[9]

The brand's tagline was "Funny Face is Fun To Drink!"[14][15]

The Funny Face brand was purchased by Brady Enterprises in 1980, and continued to sell nationwide until 1994.[16] A limited production relaunch (albeit with some modifications) was briefly sold in selected areas from 1994 to 2001. On November 28, 2012, Decas Cranberry Products of Carver, Massachusetts resurrected the names and personas of four of the original characters – Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry, Freckle Face Strawberry, Choo Choo Cherry, and Goofy Grape – for a line of flavored dried cranberry and fruit snacks.[17]

    During the period covered by this article, the Pillsbury Company was an independent food company. It was purchased by Grand Metropolitan in 1989 and then by General Mills in 2001, by which time it was just a brand name used by General Mills (and by The J.M. Smucker Company, for some products).
