Heinz Mr. Aristocrat Tomato Man.

Detroit Advertising Agency, Maxon Inc., which later came to be the Gillette Agency, created the Heinz Aristocrat Tomato Man and coupled it with the slogan, ÒRemember, Heinz is the thick rich one.Ó

The trademark was first introduced to the public in the mid-1930s, promoting Heinz Tomato Juice. The tomato man initially wore a top hat and monocle; however, his attire varied thereafter to include a cowboy, farmer and Scotsman.

Interesting Fact:

In 1987, the H. J. Heinz Company produced a line of Mr. Aristocrat clocks. These novelty clocks have become an extremely popular collectors item. When the alarm sounds the clock says, ÒItÕs time to get up, get up right away! Wait any longer and itÕs ketchup all day!"
