Actor Arthur Anderson who did the voice of Lucky for 29 years says he plans to celebrate St. Paddys by buying himself a green necktie to honor the character who did so much for his career.
Anderson depicted Lucky and spoke his signature line, Theyre magically delicious, between 1963 and 1992 and says he enjoyed the character because, as he puts it, Hes always an optimist, even when he tries magic that doesnt work.
Although fans often ask Anderson to sing the Lucky Charms jingle, he admits the requests increase around St. Patricks Day, and says its usually followed by the question, Did you get free cereal?
For the record, Anderson says there was no free cereal but they gave me lots of green money.
