Introduction:

This is an offshoot of the Comic Ads series of lists, because Captain Tootsie had many ads between 1943 and approximately 1955. I've found one blog that claims upward of 220 Captain Tootsie ads exist, but they seemed to be counting every newspaper daily black-and-white ad that is out there as well. I'll post those as I run across good scans, but the first 50 or so will all be in color.

From info that I can find, it seems that many of the color ads were printed in newspaper Sunday comics sections, and reworked for comic book advertising later. I'm looking for one good scan of each ad, preferring the comic book version over the newspaper version.

If you're unfamiliar with Captain Tootsie, he was an ad character for Tootsie Rolls and Tootsie Pops. He had a group of kid sidekicks known as the Secret Legion, but his main sidekick was Rollo. Whenever trouble arose, Captain Tootsie and friends would eat a Tootsie Roll (or Tootsie Pop) "for quick energy," and they would jump in to save the day. For Captain Tootsie, the candy seemed to give him great speed and strength, ala Popeye and his spinach. However, like a good ad should, it only ever implies this connection rather than promising these results to the consumer.

I hope you enjoy the adventures of Captain Tootsie. As always, thanks for reading, and enjoy. -cb
