Pudgies Pizza is a chain of pizza restaurants located in Upstate New York and parts of Pennsylvania. To me, this was the only pizza there was. Sadly, my hometown Pudgies in Sayre, Pennsylvania is no longer in operation, but there are still more of them serving "goodtime" pizza and subs to lucky locals. My fondest memory is getting kicked out one night because an out of control friend of mine threw a slice of pizza across the room and flat onto the wall. We were banned for a month. Thanks.
Here's two radio jingles that bring back the memories of when all it took was a slice of pizza, some sunshine and smile on your face to make everything A-OK! I like the 70s jingle the best; short, catchy and funky! In typical 80s fashion, the jingle was doubled in length and the drum machine is pounding away while girls work out in leg warmers. But hey, it's all good. By the way, you'll hear mention of "Horseheads" in the 80s song. Horseheads is a small town in New York. Seems each Pudgies battles for superiority with other Pudgies!
