Callard & Bowser candy radio spots with John Cleese, 1982

The mention of clam-flavored candy canes in the Worst Christmas Candy thread reminded me of the very funny radio ads that John Cleese did for Callard & Bowser candy. I loved C and B butterscotch, but the best flavor that John Cleese mentioned was liver orange raccoon (which I remembered incorrectly as Mandarin orange raccoon). Thanks to YouTube, I found the spots and they’re as funny as I remember. Unfortunately C & B went out of business some years ago.
