From the commercial, Clanky's theme song:
"We love Clanky, Clanky the Spaceman.
He can do a lot of things nobody else can!
We just squeeze him,
(bloop, bloop, bloop)
And he makes our milk all chocolatey.
|Clanky's ingredients: a little bit of stardust and a whole lot of sugar.|
with chocolate syrup that could be stirred into milk,
poured onto ice cream, or simply squirted directly into your
mouth if your mom wasn't watching. Once all the chocolate was gone (and, presumably, mom had thoroughly rinsed him out)
Clanky could be used as a toy, a sort of large scale action figure
(minus the action features).
Today Clanky serves as a great example of vintage space race product tie-ins, and he looks fab smiling from a shelf full of related toys.
