Dick Wilson, known far and wide as Mr. Whipple from the Charmin commericals passed away recently. Although he appeared onscreen many a time over the years, he created one memorable character.
"Please don't squeeze the Charmin" is perhaps the most famous catchphrase in modern television history. Note I said modern. To view most commercials nowadays (say, the ones from Superbowl Sunday), YouTube is required. Or at least an Internet search.
I found this blog post on Wilson's passing. Yes, it's unique, but worth the read.
