    Barbara – Colgate was the sponsor of his radio show, The Mel Blanc Show (1946-47). That reference dates this card from Christmas 1946.

    Yes Mel was Jewish, but that never stopped him from sending Christmas cards. According to his autobiography he said that he didn’t know that Noel was the French word for Christmas. He just liked the name.

    There were many Colgate Tooth Powder commercials during the run of the Mel Blanc radio program.
