In 1992, the Center for Science in the Public Interest and Mothers Against Drunk Driving, charged that Anheuser-Busch was pitching Spuds MacKenzie to children. Although the FTC found no evidence of this, the ads were dropped and never ran again. Spuds, whose real name was Honey Tree Evil Eye, was actually a female. She died of kidney failure in 1993.
