Awesome! I though I was the only Jim Henson geek who knew about these two!

You're not alone. Though I only ever learned of them thanks to the Jim Henson biography.

I learned about them from a documentary about Jim Henson which peaked my curiosity to check out those old commercials. They are hilarious.

What's the documentary called? I'll have to look into it sometime. And yeah, Wilkins and Wontkins are pretty funny guys. It's a shame they probably won't show up again.

I think it was called The World of Jim Henson. I think you can still find it on YouTube with the exception of one part. I could be wrong though as it's been a long while since I've seen it.

I've seen those commercials.
Wontkins says he doesn't like Wilkins Coffee and Wilkins kills him.

If we had commercials like this nowadays, I might actually watch TV.

They may never have had a career beyond the commercials, but these two are one of my fave Muppet duos (maybe behind Statler n Waldorf)! :) Great representation here, pal! :clap:

Thanks, pal!
And I would've loved to see these characters more often in other Muppet projects.
