Entry: 

Whilst our child was licking his way through the paint on the outside of his Tootsie Sunliner millions of children in the US were licking their way through cherry red hard candy to get to the chocolatey chewy centre on the inside of their Tootsie pops. Was he trying to get to anything?
In 1970, Tootsie Roll Industries aired an animated advert featuring a boy asking various animals how many licks it takes to get to the centre of a Tootsie Pop. A shortened version of this advert still airs on American TV today, making it a very long running advert!!
In the original ad, a boy poses this question to a cow, a fox and a turtle. Each one tells the boy to ask someone else, explaining that they'd bite a Tootsie Pop every time they lick one. Eventually, he asks an owl, who starts licking it, but eventually bites into the lollipop, much to the chagrin of the boy.
While the original commercial is 60 seconds long, an edited 30-second version and 15 second version of this commercial are the ones that have aired innumerable times over the years. The dialogue to the 60-second version is as follows:
Boy: Mr. Cow...
Mr. Cow: Yeeeeesss?
Boy: How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll centre of a Tootsie Pop?
Mr. Cow: I don't know, I always end up biting. Ask Mr. Fox, for he's much clever than I.
Boy: Mr. Fox, how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll centre of a Tootsie Pop?
Mr. Fox: Why don't you ask Mr. Turtle, for he's been around a lot longer than I? Me, heeheehee, I bite.
Boy: Mr. Turtle, how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll centre of a Tootsie Pop?
Mr. Turtle: I've never even made it without biting. Ask Mr. Owl, for he is the wisest of us all.
Boy: Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll centre of a Tootsie Pop?
Mr. Owl: A good question. Let's find out. A One... A.two-HOO...A three..
(crunch sound effect)
Mr. Owl: A Three!
Boy: If there's anything I can't stand, it's a smart owl.

Narrator: The world may never know.

After the commercial, Mr. Owl became the mascot for Tootsie Roll Pops, appearing in marketing campaigns and on the packaging.
In the 1990s, a new commercial was made featuring a boy asking a robot and a dragon how many licks it takes to get to the centre...
