Clazy, Glape, and Lacist—1950's Food and Drink Commercials

Actually, more like "clazy, glape, and highry steleotypicar." However socially reprehensible the attitudes, there is a certain old-fashioned charm to these hand-drawn cartoons. Hard to image such a simple visual approach to television advertising these days. In the first of these commercials, a Chinese baby tries to eat jello with a pair of chopsticks, in the second, a Caucasian man orders beer with a side of fortune cookies, and in the third, three "black currants" done up in blackface sing about the charms of Ribena brand juice. I couldn't locate any information about the artist(s).
