Here’s a pair of spots for a lovable advertising mascot of the 1970s, “Big Fig,” who extolled kids and their parents on the virtues of Nabisco’s Fig Newton cookies.
First up, we have “Big Fig,” (played by actor, James Harder) singing his theme song and dancing. This spot seemed like it ran during every commercial break for a year or two. It was ingrained in our young impressionable minds.
Next, we have a more general, family spot where “Big Fig” invades the kitchen. Scary and wonderful. Enjoy.
