Hubley’s Last Commercial

Vlasic Pickles commercial

Michael Sporn shares his memories of working on the last commercial that John Hubley ever directed. It was a spot for Vlasic Pickles that didn’t go over too well with the agency. Sporn’s posts – PART I and PART II – include some great thumbnail poses by animator Phil Duncan and also the revelation that Hubley was responsible for designing the Vlasic Pickles stork mascot, which is still used by the company today.
