    when I am old and grey and can't remember my own name, these ad jingles will still be in my head as they have been since I was tiny (I am now 55)

    Prince Spaghetti (a local brand in the northeast)

    Wednesday is Prince day, say what a treat!
    Wednesday is Prince day, up and down the street
    Gals making noodles, spaghetti and sauce
    Putting elbows on the table
    Even brand new brides are able
    This very Wednesday, start serving Prince!
    Brighten Wednesdays up with Prince!


    Prestone anti-freeze - this one used to scare me as it was sung to menacing music

    Never pick up a stranger
    Don't put your car in danger
    Pick up Prestone Anti-Freeze!

    And one for a carpet cleaning place whose name escapes me but whose phone number is forever etched on the gray matter.

    How many cookies did Andrew eat?
    Andrew ate eight thousand
    How do you keep your carpets neat?
    Cal Andrew 8-8000




    Can't wait to hear yours. Wish I could send the music too.

    Not a jingle but my son always say Pudding just like Bill Cosby did in the commercial. I sing the Oscar Mayer weiner song and Oscar Mayer bologna song. Kids think I'm crazy. Gotta have fun.

    For the silver-haired folks

    I wonder where the yellow went
    When I brush my teeth with Pepsodent

    Or: En-cy-clo-pe-di-a, e-n-c-y-c-l-o-p-e-d-i-a

    Oops. That last wasn't advertising. But that has always stuck in my head with years of Mickey Mouse Club at our house.

    Stell dir 'mal vor, da ist ein Platz du weisst schon wo. Da schenkt man dir ein Laecheln und sagt, "Einfach gut, bei Mc Donalds ist es einfach gut!"

    I know it doesn't rhyme in english, just want to translate.

    Think about a place, you remember where, they give you a smile and say,
    "Simply good, with Mc Donalds it's just simply good!

    (European version) :P

    Cracker Jacks: What do you want when you've got to have something and it's got to be sweet and it's got to be a lot and you've only got a dime?...

    Good & Plenty: Once upon a time there was an engineer, Choo Choo Charlie was his name we hear, he had an engine and he sure had fun, he used Good & Plenty candy to make the train run...

    Thanks for the memories! lol

    I think this one was from the Mutual of Omaha insurance commercial in the Marlin Perkins show where he would always show Jim out getting mauled by the wild animals and he would stay back in a safe place: Call 800-228-98 hundreeeed (the number was sung and I can sing it to you)

    Brylcreme, a little dab'll do ya!
    Brycreme, you'll look so debonair.

    These are not jingles, but I still remember them...

    Yes, Howdy Doody time......several years ago Buffalo Bob and others came to a local shopping center and I was so excited. I took my two girls to be part of the "peanut gallery" and they thought that was the most stupid thing they had ever done ! Keep in mind this was way before the computer/internet.....their idols were Sesame Street and others of that era....

    No one in our family drank beer, but -

    "My beer is Rheingold the dry beer, think of Rheingold whenever you buy beer"

    "Miller High Life, the champagne of bottled beer"

    "When you say Budweiser, you've said it all"

    And I hate beer lol!!

    I used to work for a rather conservative Christian company; went to an outing at my boss' house and we had a game something about songs....HIS kids started singing 99 bottles of beer on the wall....oh that was great !
