Originally portrayed by Dick Beals (1927-2012) who was only 4'7".

(Yes, I know Speedy was a clay figure.)

Currently, the Speedy Alka-Seltzer ads are still running.

After this, in '65 or so, the Alka Seltzer campaign with the catchy "No Matter What Shape Your Stomach's In" song by the T-Bones became a radio hit as well. The image of the shaking jack-hammer belly and great closing image of the finger repeatedly pointing at a chubby mid-section.. are burned in my mind forever..
YouTube!

Remember it came in a glass tube with a steel cap? I think there were about 15 or 20 tablets in it.
