So. For the last 17 years since I first learned about Descartes as a first semester college freshman, whenever anyone, including me, would use the word “indubitable” (which means that which is incapable of being doubted, and which inevitably must be discussed whenever covering Descartes) I have heard this children’s character’s voice in my head enthusiastically exclaim “Indubitably!”

But I never knew just who exactly that children’s character was.

Until yesterday, when in one of my online philosophy classes Lance Wisely remembered and filled me in when I mentioned this. I had otherwise completely forgotten about this commercial and the product it sells, except for the exact way that they said “Indubitably!” which has annoyingly and hauntingly echoed in my mind for the nearly half of my life. I loathe the sound of this freaking word so much.
