    I mean, the name alone is traumatizing.  Nutter Butter?!?  Then they encourage you to open him up and like out his insides.  Some people even like to like around the edges, getting the peanut butter that squirted out a bit.  It’s like you’re rimming the Nutter Butter Man!!!!

    Then, unlike most cartoons, he has 5 fingers which makes him human like.  He has pedophile-like pasty skin and yellow hair.

    You guys are goddamn brilliant digging this stuff up day after day.  Are you sure you’re not aliens or geniuses or from the future?

    The seventies were an insane, upside-down time when Marjoe Gortner was considered leading man material and Sally Struthers was seen as vaguely tolerable but I still find it hard to fathom that Nabisco believed children or their parents would respond positively to this annoying, tangerine fro’d figure who loiters about playgrounds singing his own praises. I don’t if they were trying to rip off Willy Wonka or the fig-newton man but they failed on both accounts and is there anything more nauseating then squiggly hippie animation?

    Seriously.  I think animation had progressed past that point by then.  The stability of those lines look as tight as Steamboat Willie!

    And it’s def traumatizing that the little boy sprints off when the Butter man gets a weeee bit too close.  He’s like “yo!, peace Nutter Butter man… I’m getting the fu*k outta here!”

    Fox, you’re right, the kid throws down his box of cookies to distract the guy and then runs for the police at the end.
