Hoppy's Headquarters

Producer's Dairy is an independent, Fresno based dairy. The owners are the Shehadey family, who lived next door to my family when I was growing up. I had lots of mock gun battles with the kids.

The spokesperson for Producers is Hopalong Cassidy. It still says "Hoppy's Favorite" on the sides of Producers milk cartons. I remember looking at the milk cartons one time in the Country Boy grocery store, sometime in the early 80s. My dad said that Producers would have a hard time convincing young people to drink their milk with Hoppy as their spokesperson, because no kids knew who he was. He suggested they switch to Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson would have been a bad choice in the long run. Hoppy 's laughing all the way to the bank.
