Ed Schoenberg isn't nuts. That Weinerschnitzel ad campaign not only existed, it was a brainchild of two of my big influences. (I write and draw comics, cartoons, ads, etc.) Gene Moss and Jim Thurman were a big deal in the mid-to-late 1960s and things got even bigger for them. They wrote ALL of the ROGER RAMJET animated cartoons and had two different live TV shows on LA's KHJ; SHRIMPENSTEIN (a daily subversive kids' program starring a cute little Frankenstein puppet and Moss as its creator, a mad scientist) and a late-nightly talk/improv show. Moss and Thurman also had their own ad agency, hence, those wacky Weinerschnitzel ads! Later, Moss became the primary voiceover announcer for ABC and Thuman created segments for SESAME STREET and other Children's Television Workshop series. They're both gone now, but they produced a ton of memorable work, mostly hilarious.
