Greasy Gus

During the 1950’s Vent-A-Hood came up with different marketing efforts to help endorse the product. One such effort was to create “Greasy Gus”, which was made on an old film strip to help to illustrate how grease will accumulate overtime. Named for Gus Schaefer, who was the author of the cartoon and national sales manager during this time. Check out this tribute to “Greasy Gus” from our 75th anniversary by clicking below.
