Right now, we know you're asking yourself, "Who is Ralph James"? We asked the same question. Ralph James was a voiceover artist who voiced Mr. Turtle from the classic Tootsie Pop commercials, which ran from 1978 to 1982. Ralph James died at the age of 67 on March 14, 1992. That was 19 years ago today! He had a small part but he will be remembered forever!
We have fond memories of this commercial. We always liked how Mr. Turtle was a grumpy old man and didn't want to deal with the weird naked kid's questions. "GO ASK MR. OWL, YOU YOUNG WHIPPER SNAPPER SON OF A BITCH YOU!!!!"
RIP Ralph James
