Koogle was a flavored peanut spread marketed by Kraft, introduced in 1971. It was available in several flavors, including chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla and banana.  I remember banana peanut butter Koogle sandwiches when I was a kid.  Many of Koogle’s TV commercials featured the product’s mascot, an over-sized puppet costume in the abstract form of a giant jar with spinning eyeballs and a “jive” voice similar to that of then-popular radio disc jockey Wolfman Jack. In the premiere commercial the mascot danced to a jingle, “Pea-nutty-koogle with the koo-koo-koogly eyes,” which was modeled on Billy Rose’s 1923 hit song “Barney Google (with the Goo-Goo-Googly Eyes)”.

I am a Librarian. To be honest, I wouldn't want to do anything else. I have a strong background in architecture, computer technology, English literature, Internet applications, web site design, film studies and modern art. I would like to use this page to express my personal musings and experiences on news, pop culture, nature, art, science, technology and what ever becomes a curiosity.
