According to a spokesman for the Television Bureau of Advertising, Worthington “is probably the best known car dealer pitchman in television history.”
I moved to California when I was seven years old and loved to watch Cal’s commercials. They were known as the “My Dog Spot” ads because each commercial would introduce Cal Worthington and his dog Spot. However, the dog was never a dog. In most cases, it was an exotic animal being led around on a leash.
