Made In The U.S.A.

Cliff Claven buys American

Many apologies to Mr. John Ratzenberger, who is no doubt equally cursed and blessed by his brilliant stint as know-it-all-mailman Cliff Claven on NBC’s 1980s hit show, Cheers. Hopefully he feels more blessed. But still, he’s got to get annoyed at people like me who still call him Cliff after fifteen years off the air. Anyway…

Did you know he now hosts a show on the Travel Channel called Made In America?

Ratzenberger visits various American manufacturers, taking the show’s viewers along on the tours and showing how various everyday items are made. The show has visited a variety of factories, including Crayola, Airstream, Yankee Candle, Samuel Adams Brewery, Ruger, Delta Faucet Company, Rodgers Instruments, Campbell’s and Gilbarco Veeder-Root.

Hey, cool.

And also cool that Crayola, Airstream, Yankee Candle, Sam Adams, Ruger, Delta Faucet, Campbell’s and some other companies I’m too ignorant to recognize make their products in the U.S. of A!

I’m particularly glad that Crayola crayons are MITUSA. Aren’t they just swell?
