Two Muppets, Tommy and Fred, appeared in ads for Kern's Bakery in the late-1960s. 24 ten-second ads were produced in 1965 and 1966, and they aired from 1966 to 1969. Structurally, these ads were very similar to the Wilkins Coffee ads, and some are direct remakes, as were many of the commercials produced by Muppets, Inc. for local markets during this period.
