Domino's Pizza (commercials), "The Noid" Puppet

original movie prop

The Noid (voiced by Pons Maar) is an advertising character for Domino's Pizza created in the 1980s. Clad in a red, skin-tight, rabbit-eared body suit with a black N inscribed in a white circle, The Noid was a physical manifestation of all the challenges (becoming annoyed "a noid") inherent in getting a pizza delivered in 30 minutes or less. Though persistent, his efforts were repeatedly thwarted. The Noid was created in 1986 by Group 243, the advertising agency for Domino's Pizza, and was animated by Will Vinton Studios. This is a hero Noid puppet used by Will Vinton Studios for multiple different TV appearances in the Domino’s Commercials and still has his metal armature. Although multiple were made this is the only one found in almost perfect condition and remarkably still posable. The Noid has made a few appearances in modern-day entertainment, including an altercation in the Family Guy episode "Deep Throats," in an episode of 30 Rock,  in a segment of Michael Jackson: Moonwalker and in two episodes of The Simpsons, once as a Thanksgiving Day parade balloon in the episode "Homer vs. Dignity," and the other in person in the episode "She of Little Faith". The Noid is referred to in the 19th episode of season 2 of The Goldbergs (set in the 1980s), when Barry lands a job delivering pizzas and is told how important it is to "avoid the Noid". He is so bad at his job; the boss eventually accuses Barry of being “The Noid”.
