What the heck were they??
BlazeFox from Seattle, Wa

This was a semi-cute, creative cartoon spinoff using the Bill Vinton
claymation characters from the shorts that were supposed to boost the
of the little red boxes of raisins that we all ate as a kid in some point
Basically the whole show was about a fabricated singing sensation called
"The California Raisins." They sorta seemed like one of those Mo-Town
in the 60's and 70's. They were dark, purple looking and had "soulful"
voices, so I assume they were African American raisins?
I would've been less suprised if someone had attempted to make a cartoon
that was aimed at boosting sales of milk. I mean milk was pretty big. But
also milk pretty much sold itself, especially if you have babies. Not a
whole lotta people bought raisins.
The shorts and the show somehow made a miniscule thing such as dried out
grapes into a "trendy" treat.
Sidenote: Bill Vinton also created the Domino's Pizza stealing
super-villain, "The Noid" who also got his own game for MSDOS computers
entitled "Avoid the Noid" where you play a brave pizza man trying to avoid
the red rabbit-esque fiend and a Nintendo game called "Yo Noid" in which
Noid is the hero bouncing on pogo sticks and riding on
Imagine the royalty checks for this guy..
