Before he became the ubiquitous, wall-smashing Kool-Aid Man in 1975, our thirst-quenching friend was known as the “Pitcher Man.” In 1975 Kraft Foods gave him arms and legs and began to propel him through brick walls. Kool-Aid Man is now famous for enthusiastically exclaiming “Oh, Yeah!” when summoned by thirsty children with the phrase “Hey, Kool-Aid!” By the 1980s, writers began to supply the character with dialogue. Early digital manipulation allowed Kool-Aid Man’s mouth to move over the glass of his pitcher. In the 1990s, the live-action character was replaced by a purely computer-generated one. He has became a household name and a pop culture icon. Of course he’s been used by comedians, gamers, and comic books in all sorts of ways. Let’s have a look at a few of his best variations, shall we? Oh, yeah!
