The Pocket Fisherman, the Chop-O-Matic, Mr. Microphone—any Baby Boomer of the 1960s or ‘70s remembers America's most famous TV pitchman: Chicagoan Ron Popeil. Popeil was a tireless innovator, clever inventor, and irrepressible pitchman who entered American homes with an endless array of gadgets and kitchen helpers, all designed to save time and money for consumers. Learn the Popeil story through “the art of the pitch” video interactive, step into the booth to make-your-own TV commercial to post on social media, and explore many of Popeil’s most popular gadgets at hands-on displays.
