Cal Worthington and His Dog Spot: 1980's Commercial

Cal Worthington commercial from the 1980's

"Cal Worthington and his dog spot!"

Go see Cal, go see Cal, go see Cal! Television in the 1980's was chock full of Cal Worthington commercials. The car dealership owner became a pop culture sensation with his goofy, obnoxious commercials that often featured Cal with an animal (referred to as his dog "Spot") or doing crazy stunts.

Cal Worthington and his dog Spot!

Cal Worthington dropped out of school at the age of 13 and began selling cars in his twenties. Believe it or not, Cal Worthing is still alive today. (Those of you in California probably already know this.) He is 90-years-old now, but is still whooping it up in his white cowboy hat and landing the ladies. Last month he was married for a fourth time, to a 42-year-old Icelandic jazz singer and songwriter, Anna Mjöll Ólafsdóttir.

Upon finding the above Cal Worthington video on YouTube I came across the most hilarious comment ever. "Guess I wasn't the only one that thought it was "pussy cow".

  1. There's a group on Facebook called, 'When I was a kid I thought Cal Worthington said Pussycow'. And I totally did, too!
