At a time when the mouse was still foreign to most of us, Panasonic applied its ingenuity to create a touchscreen PC made for the home market. The decision was made to name its computer after a popular cartoon character, in this case Woody Woodpecker, and featured an ad campaign with the slogan “Touch Woody—the Internet Pecker.” Seriously, this was approved.

An American staffer informed the Japanese team of the sexual overtones, which many executives were embarrassed about, compelling the company to postpone the product launch. While Panasonic felt it was too late to rename the machine, it changed the moniker of the touch screen feature from “Touch Woody” to the “Woody Touch Screen.” Some people just don't get it.
