The female Bull Terrier "Honey Tree Evil Eye" was used in the Macho beer commercials in the late 1980's..
The dog first showed up in a Bud Light Super Bowl ad.
During the height of "his" popularity, large amounts of Spuds merchandise was available, such as plush toys and t-shirts.
Shortly after Spuds' rise to fame The ads were the subject of attacks and calls for censorship by temperance-oriented groups.
In 1992, the Center for Science in the Public Interest, along with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, charged that Anheuser-Busch was pitching the dog to children. Although the Federal Trade Commission found no evidence to support that allegation, the ads were dropped.
Honey Tree Evil Eye (October 7, 1983 - May 31, 1993), died of kidney failure in North Riverside, Illinois.
Cultural references......

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Chris Sabo was given the nickname “Spuds MacKenzie” by manager Pete Rose in 1988, the year Sabo won National League Rookie of the Year honors.
The character Slurms MacKenzie (“The Original Party Worm”) from the television series Futurama is a parody of Spuds, as is Santa’s Little Helper’s stint as “Suds McDuff” on The Simpsons.
In his late-1980s anti-“sellout” anthem, “This Note’s for You” (the title of which parodies Budweiser’s “This Bud’s for You” ad campaign), Neil Young says he “ain’t singing for Spuds” in the title track. The dog also appears throughout the music video for the same song.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
