Jim Henson's Wilkins Coffee Commercials

Follow by Email
A Set of Wilkins Coffee Commercials Made by Jim Henson back in the 1950's when Setting Explosions and Hitting Muppets were Funny.


Anaya Klein : "Gimme a close shave" "do you drink Wilkins instant coffee?" "Never!" "Buddy, this is going to be the closest shave you've ever had" is the best thinly veiled threat I've ever seen

arbitterm : Was Wilkins Coffee like a mafia front or something?

kratcat : I thought Kermit was more of a tea drinker.

Blind Terry Tucci : These are amazing. "I told him he'd end up drinking Wilkins!" That puppet probably has dozens of other non-Wilkins drinkers in his crawl space.

Chance P : 1:45 ....That puppet just threatened to slit the other guys throat ....When did I start watching Sweeney Todd :The Demon Muppet of Fleet Street !?

gumballguy34 : "Just me and Wilkins Instant for eighty whole days"

Adino1 : 1:37 Kermit was a total psychopath in his former life.

Help Trump Build The Wall : Kermit's untamed lust for murder

The Spy : This is gonna be the closest shave you've ever had

William's Animations & Art : I find these really entertaining

Elekhoden : Ok, that was a sunbeam of happiness. "I'm sorry to tell you- YOU DON'T HAVE A FUTURE!" Oh man.

Allura Boy : I don't know why everyone thinks it's violent; they're puppets. And it's slapstick humor, I find it hilarious! ^^

FatterRoshi : He... He shot him! He stone cold point blank shot that guy! For not drinking coffee!

Queen MeowTigeress : i never drink coffee im more of a tea purrrrson *get arrow shot by homicidal muppet* bet ppl will make thread out of the word *by homicidal muppet*

StriderOwO : Kermit used to be insanely hilarious.

emptyspotlight : the original never say no to panda, but thats none of my business

Goat Bloke : Apparently, Kermit was a Cereal Killer before he became one of the Muppets.

Nick Duel : A puppet shooting another puppet in a TV commercial. Hmmmm, definitely wouldn't fly by today's standards.  I could use some Wilkins coffee right about now though.

OshMMf : Omg the shave one xD

sha11235 : Wilkins sounds a bit like Kermit and Wontkins like Rowlf.

JayDee284 : Looks like Jim Henson was 1 sick Motherfucker in his younger years haha

Chris Bradley : The characters are named Wilkins and Wontkins.  Read Jim Hensons book to learn more.  More than 8 national coffee companies used these guy.  Fantastic stuff!

lauren chambers : so adorable and sadistic at the same time lol

Furby productions : Every Wilkins coffee commercial in a nutshell Wilkins: Drink Wilkins coffee Wontkins: no **gets hurt or killed some how**

joethehero2 : We'll never get rid of that car...

dfgdfg : This is an unrelentingly horrible set of experiences

Xilo Channel : Yo dude this kermit prototype is a psycho.

O G : 1:50 brand x? I just had flashbacks to foodfight! (Shudders)

RealBladethegamer : is it bad that I find this so funny?

Joseph Pratt : These commercials are very funny!

ImperatorZor : Wilkian's Instant Coffee: the Stalinist Russia of caffeinated beverages

catpower : Anybody else here because of Don Draper's "Puppets and so forth" comment?

Agoonga : these ads are awesome

Victor Lutz : "Im gonna drink this coffee and its not wilkins"

sha11235 : The in-joke is this: Henson didn't really like coffee, so it wasn't difficult for him to come up with ways to make Wontkins try it.

thegougeman : This was Jim Henson at his best....  Love those commercials....

Hotshotter3000 : 1:38 That's honestly terrifying. I mean REALLY terrifying.

CozyBanx : Holy sadism Batman!

Bidane Martinez-Huerta : No Mercy. Only Wilkins Coffee.

The Plains Jam : Drink Wilkins, or get smoked

Hiyama Kiyoteru : Rich... Rich... Double Rich

1mortalkombatlover : HURRY!!! drink 50's coffee before a puppet brutally murders you while making a pun! :P

JaxBlade : This is just beautifully morbid xD

Bolwerk314 : Pretty sure I have seen some lesser known flash cartoons with this kind of humor.  Bless the internet for restoring what sensibilities and the FCC has robbed from us.

The VHS Guy : this is the funniest shit I've ever seen

•motu_jar• ! : blameitonjorge anyone?

cherrybomb921 : Soooo... Where can I get some coffee at?
