The Luck of the Irish

I’m off to Frankfurt en route to Switzerland this evening. So it seems appropriate to mix up the German with the Irish today. His name is Dooley and he was part of a 1950s-era cartoon duo called Schultz and Dooley. These talking beer stein characters appeared in a series of ads for an upstate New York berry called Utica Club. In 1959 an American outfit called Webco made a set of actual  steins based on the animated versions.
