Jolly Green Giant

(1958 - )

The Green Giant became the mascot of the Minnesota Valley Canning Company in 1928.

When the Jolly Green Giant first appeared in Television commercials in 1958, he did not exactly leave the desired impression.  He looked like a monster and scared kids! So they worked on his looks and added 'Ho, ho, ho' and the jingle 'Good things from the garden,’ to lighten up his image.
