Ol’ Judge Robbins in the “Horseless Carriage” Days (Jul, 1936)

We learn a few important things from this ad:

  • Ol’ Judge Robbins has a daughter he calls Chubbins, which seems like a cruel name if she’s at all conscious about her weight.
  • Chubbins appears to be an elf. Keebler perhaps? Maybe the magic ingredient is tobacco…
  • O’l Judge Robbins is very bitter towards anything that is a “mix-up” since a mix-up once caused him to blow up his car, lose his girl and his chance of a fortune. He cringes when someone tries to serve him peas and carrots mixed up on one dish. Ben and Jerry’s ice cream causes him to have fits of apoplexy.
  • The only person Ol’ Judge Robbins trusts to mix anything is Prince Albert.

Perhaps in the next issue we’ll learn how Prince Albert and Ol’ Judge Robbins met and bonded. Plus how Prince Albert extended his “crimp cut” technique to other areas.

O’ Judge Robbins in the “Horseless Carriage” Days
GENTLEMEN, MEET THE PRINCE OF PIPE TOBACCOS-PRINCE ALBERT
