There is so much to love about this Linit Fabric Finish commercial from back in 1967, not the least being how awesome a spokesman…er, spokespuppet that Jim Henson, Jerry Juhl, and Don Sahlin created with Sir Linit.

A huge thanks to the Henson Company Official YouTube Channel for uploading this wonderful ad. I think my favorite part is the young woman’s reaction at the end of the commercial.
