Mr Chips was Burry's answer for Chips Ahoy. They came in 3 flavors and had quite the mysterious mascot. A few months ago I was lucky to get a salesman sample box of all three flavors. The amazing thing is that the boxes are still sealed in cello wrap and full of cookies!
They made 3 Mr Chips comics in 1965. In my collection I have the complete original artwork to one of the comics which may have been done by the Jay Ward Studios.
I also have a few animation cels with Mr Chips. I have never seen the commercials so I am not sure what he did with that giant cannon....
the giant cannon was used to blast chocolate chips into the cookies.
I just discover the famous Mr Chips through your blog : thanks for that!
Do you have scan of the three adventures and the fabulous original art work you'are so lucky to have;)

I’ve been searching for video of the commercial without luck for years.
I recall it being mildly scary as a kid. The figure mumbled and was only seen in silhouette scurrying around and firing the canon.
I loved it. Amazing that you have all of this stuff after so many years. Thanks for posting
