Cruzin' Cooler

Seth Kerr from Montgomery, Alabama loves the Cruzin' Cooler (Episode 101) and would love to see Dick driving around on one of them, looking like an idiot.


Micah Ovadia suggests a new slogan "You're soaking in it!"  That's Palmolive's slogan.  Read TV Acres for the history of the slogan.  Dick and Leo have to decide whether they want to be sued by Del Monte or Palmolive.


Leo is going to keep singing the song "Letters ..." until they get a jingle.  Dick thinks that's a Perry Como song.
