MetLife Cartoon Superbowl Commercial – Behind the Scenes Extras

I loved MetLife’s cartoon-filled Superbowl commercial yesterday! (So much so, in fact that I dissected it here by identifying each character, pointing out some errors, and revealing where Waldo was.)

But some additional kudos are due thanks to some awesome additional content. Enjoy:

Director can’t find Waldo

Snagglepuss has issues

Yosemite Sam hates fur

Voltron dances

Kudos again, MetLife!

MetLife Cartoon Superbowl Commercial – Characters, Errors & Where Waldo Is

MetLife’s Superbowl ad this year is pretty tremendous if you’re a cartoon fan. Not only do you get the Peanuts gang, you get a whole host of cartoon awesomeness not seen since Roger Rabbit or that 2005 MasterCard commercial.

I looked at MetLife’s Facebook page to double check myself, and found that they did make a few errors:

They list Captain Caveman as being in the ad, when in fact it’s Rock & Gravel Slag:

captain caveman

They also fail to list Witch Hazel, Ranger Smith, and Tex Avery’s wolf.

And, this isn’t an error per se, but did you notice Charlie Brown and friends only appear in the very beginning of the ad? And they’re not in the cast list on Facebook. (I’m thinking legal issues or something.)

I do need some help, though. Can anyone tell me who this is?


Is it a Scooby-Doo villain? They only appears in a few frames, but I just cannot figure it out. And did I miss anyone else?

Also, wanna know where Waldo is in the commercial? Actually, he’s all over the place:






Now you can impress your friends when it airs!

Anyway, it’s always a hoot to see so many cartoons in one place. Nice job, MetLife! (And don’t miss the extra videos here!)

What did you think? Anyone you’d have liked to see included?

Hat tip to Bleeding Cool!
