video Today on the tray: Singing raisins

April 30 is National Raisin Day. Even when they don’t dance and sing, the wrinkled, sun-dried grapes are a delicious, low-fat snack.

If you were paying attention in 1988-89, you might have noticed a short-lived Saturday morning animated series, The California Raisins, based on the singing group of the same name from the California Raisin Advisory Board commercials. While the raisins in the commercials were claymation, the ones in the TV show were just regular cartoon raisins. But they could still sing and dance, which is pretty impressive for a raisin.
