Pilsbury Dough boy

What color is his neckerchief?

MMDE: Blue

Current: White

Ahh ... The Pilsbury Dough Boy. Who can picture him without wanting to poke his stomach to hear that famous giggle?

When you do picture him, what color is his neckerchief? If you thought it was blue, you may have the same false memory as many others who are shocked to find that today it's white - and always has been.

His actual name is Poppin' Fresh, and he's been around since 1965. He became so popular a line of children's toys were created, and he even has an extended family now. He first appeared in the adverts using stop-motion animation, but from 1994 he's all CGI.

Who ya gonna call?

Many people think he was the huge monster in the first Ghostbusters movie, but in fact that was the totally fictional Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Well, it was so far in this timeline...
