Mack and Kermit
Mack makes Kermit explode

Kermit and Mack appeared in ads for McGarry's Sausage. 11 ten-second ads were produced in 1964, and they aired from 1965 to 1968. Structurally, the ads were very similar to the ads produced for Wilkins Coffee (1957-1961) and Claussen's Bakery (1964-1966).

Mack's agenda of pushing McGarry's Sausage intruded on the bounds of their friendship on several occasions. In one ad ("Wake Up"), Mack whispers to a sleeping Kermit, "Do you want McGarry's Sausages for breakfast?" Kermit murmurs and settles back down to sleep. Undaunted, Mack replies, "You should," and produces a pistol. He fires the gun into the air, yelling, "They start your day off with a BANG!" Kermit leaps out of bed, shaking and fearing for his life.

In other ads, Mack bites Kermit on the arm, makes him explode, and lets him drop from a high window.
