This has brought back a childhood memory of the old guy I would see in Wolf Brand Chili commercials on our old B&W round screen TV in Lindsay, Oklahoma. I’m thinking around 1959 or before because we moved to California in 1960. I don’t remember a rocking chair, but that sounds about right because this was a really old guy. I remember a light-colored cowboy hat, and glasses that seemed a little dark. He always struck me as a guy who might have been a real cowboy. He had a gruff voice. I was told that as a small child I could imitate his voice and pitch line–something like "Neighbor… How long has it been since you had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand chili? (heh heh) Well, that’s too long!", and was asked to do so when all the grownups would get together to roars of laughter.
