    Or Loretta Lynn in the Crisco commercials. "Crisco will do you proud everytime!"

    Ajax, boom boom, the foaming cleanser, bud- a boom boom boom,
    Cleans the dirt,
    Right down the drain.

    Humble became Enco, then Enco became Exxon. Put a tiger in your tank. Or Esso, depending on your state. ALL became EXXON.

    what about the singing raisins dancing to "I heard it thru the grapevine".......not sure what they were advertising? Raisin Bran?

    I seem to remember a commercial for Philip Morris (cigarrettes?) - the guy with a bellboy hat carrying a big box on a sling ....calling "..........last call for Philip Morris"....I just can't remember the words...

    Plop-plop, fizz-fizz, oh what a relief it is! (Alka Seltzer)


    Can't remember the "right words"
    ......When you want shoes with lots of pep...get Keds-Kids-Keds,
    for bounce and zoom with every step...get Keds-Kids-Keds,

    Timex......takes a licking and keeps on ticking!

    I think the commercials of old had catchier tunes that we inadvertently learned the words to.....nowadays, I'm not quite sure what they are advertising for?!? HA!

    I think the singing raisins was for SunKist or SunMaid raisins.

    Yual Givens for Post Grape Nuts......Its crunchy taste reminds me of wild hickory nuts.

    Kellogg's Corn Flakes or one of the cereals "Best to you each morning."
    and then Folger's, the mountain grown coffee.

    I like listening to old time radio programs. My favorite show is with Jack Benny and for years his show started with the Jello jingle, then Benny would say, "Jello again, this Jack Benny speaking."

    Later, Lucky Strikes was Benny's sponsor. I remember their L.S.M.F.T. TV commercials when I was young. Of course, as young boys, we had other words for those letters, which I'm too polite to mention on here.

    Does anyone else remember the episode of MASH when a general pointed to his collar and asked Hawkeye if he knew what that star meant? Hawkeye replied, "I can trust my car with you?"

    Yes do remember the three girls, short medium and tall tap dancing to the Lucky Strike on Hit Parade commercials. Their costumes being a Lucky Strike box, and only their legs and feet showed.

    prell shampoo--"other shampoos are 'thin, watery-watery-watery', but not prell (as they drop a pearl into the bottle, and it drifts slowly to the bottom...)

    halo shampoo--"halo, everybody, halo-- halo is the shampoo that glorifies your hair..."

    salem cigarettes: "you can take salem out of the country, but--you can't take the country out of salem."

    "silly rabbit--trix are for kids!"

    crowd riding on an open bed truck, singing (to the william tell overture tune) "get a lark, get a lark, get a lark, lark, lark..." and shouting, "show us your larks!" (cigarettes)

    Ernie Kovacs advertising for Dutch Masters cigars, and edie adams playing along with it--"why dontcha pick one up and smoke it, sometime..."
    "life is a banquet, and most poor fools are out there, starving to death!"--"auntie mame"

    Along with LSMFT was WINSTON which on some game show was turned into "Winston is not so tasty on noodles". My mom had a love-hate relationship with the "ring around the collar" commercial for Whisk laundry detergent. She used to mutter about telling the offending man to wash his neck.

    A local young boy decided to eat just one. He wrote to the company and told them he had done that, verified by his mother. The company sent him a certificate saying, "I ate just one." But in their letter, they said he didn't have to do that again.

    Did you notice that the most memorable commercials listed here are mostly for cigarettes?

    I haven't seen the one that I think has been around the longest, and is still seen and quoted. The Energizer bunny. "Just keeps on going and going and going . . . . . . .

    I miss having movies available like "in the old days." I think there were late night movies, too.

    All programming used to go off the air at midnight then, too!

    I remember lots of commercials, not always good at recalling them on demand.
    Plop fizz fizz was for alka selzer. Snap crackle pop - Rice Krispies. The song someone put the words to was for Coke a cola.

    How about the cartoon commercial where a little boy in a bathtub put on a derby and said to his grandmother, "Hello, madam. How do you do?" And she grabbed the telephone and shouted, "Operator! There's a man in my bathtub!"
