As a boy in the 80's I collected the California Raisins toys you could get from Hardee's. And there was a cartoon.
As a kid I loved them but as an adult I wonder how they got away with marketing these guys. They seem like racist caricatures.
I remember them. I guess I never thought they were racist. They were kind of soul and R&B singers right? Stereotypes, I suppose. When you're a kid you don't know of such things. Who created them?
Oh I see, I didn't know there was a cel animated show. I only knew them from the claymation commercials. That's right, they must have started out peddling raisins.
