During "The Gold Violin", the latest episode of 'Mad Men', Don Draper talked to the executives of Martinson Coffee about the various methods used to sell coffee, one of them being with puppets.

He must have been referring to the television campaign for Wilkins' Coffee which featured two puppets created by Jim Hensen, Wilkins and Wontkins. Wilkins kept trying to get Wontkins to sample the coffee, but Wontkins steadfastly refused. And for taking such a stand, inevitably Wilkins would kill him.

Over and over again.
Ya can't get good puppet shows like that on TV anymore!
