Dick Wilson

Long before "Where's the beef!?!" and "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful," Mr. Whipple was begging people: "Please, don't squeeze the Charmin."

He was a neat dude, but Charmin is not that great a product, really. Why couldn't the Charmin die and not him???

At least Charmin doesn't have ads with animated bears taking animated dumps in the animated woods. Or little tiny lady weavers complaining about butt lint. The late Mr. Whipple was all class.

Couldn't agree with you more ETW! Charmin leaves lint buildup and that chafes my ass. Also, never ever ever buy their moist wipes. They're perfumed! No warning. One minute you're opening a new product in your moment of need, the next moment you're walking past your spouse who is saying, "What's that I smell?" It's no good.

But, I will squeeze my trusty Cottonelle in his honor.

Ok. I'm not ashamed to admit it: Charmin rocks.

How sad. I didn't have a clue that he had died. And on my dad's birthday of all days.

He was always such a cute little man, but I have to agree with the majority. Charmin is crap. White Cloud or Quilted Northern for me.
