Doughboy was buried in a slightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, Captain Crunch and many others. The graveside was piled high in flours as longtime friend Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, describing Doughboy as a man who “never knew how much he was kneaded”.
Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with many turnovers. When he began hitting the baking soda a little too often… he fell quickly. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Still, even as a crusty old man, he was a roll model to millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough. They have two children, John and Jane Dough and one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 350 for about twenty minutes.
