Morty the Meatball was the short-lived mascot for the Mission Macaroni Company. Mission Macaroni was founded by Italian immigrant Guido Merino in San Francisco during the Great Depression. Morty was featured in 1970s commercials for the company saying his signature catchphrase "I'm a luva-luva you."
