Noodle Doodles were tinned pasta shapes in tomato sauce made by Heinz. A quick scoot about the internet tells me Wurzel Gummidge used to sing the Noodle Doodle song which appeared in the advert. The ad used to have a cartoon man made out of noodles singing the Noodle Doodle song, which was sang to the tune of ‘Yankee Doodle Dandy’. I can’t believe you don’t remember this.
It amazes me that – considering how much of the internet is taken up with idiotic nostalgic twitter – you can’t find references to Noodle Doodles all over the shop. The song featured in the ad was up there with the Um Bongo and Bird’s Eye Steakhouse Grill songs in terms of notoriety and inability to get out of your head.
Christ, just found the lyrics, I was off with ‘trees’
It’s all flooding back now
“Noodle Doodle went to town with lots of straight spaghetti, twisted it around and round and this is what you getty – Noodle Doodle motor cars, Noodle Doodle houses, Noodle Doodle butterflies, eek, Noodle Doodle mouses.” twisted them around around around now this is what you getty. Noodledoodledoodledoodle railway trains, noodledoodledoodledoodle houses, nooodledoodledoodledoodle aeroplanes, Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek! Noodle Doodle mouses!” Closing phrase: ‘They’re everyone’s favourite foodle’.
