Click to Good & Plenty Web SiteChoo Choo Charlie - In 1960, the Bauer & Tripp ad agency created a TV cartoon commercial for Good and Plenty candy (candy coated licorice) starring a little boy called Choo-Choo Charlie who wore an engineer's cap and rattled a box of Good and Plenty candy for the sound of his imaginary locomotive. His girl friend in the commercial helped sing the lyrics and interjected "Charlie says." To make the sound of the train whistle, buyers of Good and Plenty candy could blow through the empty box. The Good and Plenty TV ads were animated by UPA Studio. Good and Plenty is a product of  the Hershey Company.

The Choo Choo Charlie character first appeared in advertisements in 1950 but stopped running in the mid-sixties. The commercial's jingle lyrics revealed:

Once upon a time there was an engineer
Choo Choo Charlie was his name, we hear.
He had an engine and he sure had fun
He used Good & Plenty candy to make his train run.
Charlie says "Love my Good & Plenty!"
Charlie says "Really rings my bell!"
Charlie says "Love my Good & Plenty!"
Don't know any other candy that I love so well!
