According to Wikipedia Peter Pan Peanut Butter, a brand of Con Agra Foods, was named after the J.M. Barrie character in and debuted in 1928. Although originally produced by the Swift & Company who at the time first called the peanut butter , "E.K. Pond," the new name quickly became a success!

Advertising Peter Pan is Like ... Magic!

According to Rick Plummer who wrote the article, "
Peter Pan Peanut Butter & the Sky King Show," Peter Pan was separated from the other Derby product departments in 1940, and marketing became a individualistic effort. Derby Foods set the pace for nationwide distribution by being the first peanut butter to use national advertising in the mid 1940's. The "Sky King" sponsored by Peter Pan, and when it moved to television, they continued to sponsor it there." After learning reading this, I asked myself what in the heck is the "Sky King."

Plummer had an answer for that too, he says, "The "Sky King" radio serial began on October 28, 1946 and ran daily. The show was 15 minutes in length. In 1947, it ran on a Tuesday and Thursday, each show lasting 30 minutes.
