Spuds MacKenzie

Did ya know;

Spuds was a fictional dog created specifically for use in an advertising campaign for Budweiser Light Beer in the 1980's. Spuds not only sold beer, Spuds sold a lot of Spud merchandise like t-shirts and toys.

Spuds was a bull terrier, cast as a male but was in actuality a female. Her real name was Beauregard Lollygags. Now that's a name!

A lot of controversy followed Spuds throughout his/her career. Anheuser-Busch was accused of luring children into having an interest in their product by pitching Spuds to them. (It's interesting to note that the Federal Trade Commission found no evidence to support this previous allegation.)

When the Spuds image began overshadowing the product, Anheuser-Busch decided to pull the campaign in 1989.

So there are a few of our favorite TV dogs. How many more can you dig up... C'mon, it's not that ruff!
