A pair of car spots for you today. In pole position, a high-octane commercial for Chevy’s ’79 Z28 Camaros. In second place, we have an unexpected challenger, the AMC Concord. Both spots aired in November of 1978.
A pair of celebrity sightings in our commercials today. First up, Farrah Fawcett and plenty of sexual innuendo in a spot for Noxzema shave cream. After that, Connie Stevens in a singing ‘n’ dancing spot for Ace Hardware. Both commercials aired in October of 1976.
You’ll find some major celebrity power on display in this September 1970 Recipe dog food commercial starring Lassie. Following that, a fun spot from September 1976 for Purina Dog Chow with narration by Mason Adams.
A perfectly normal sight in the Seventies. Do not adjust your sets.
“When you think of toys – think of Toys ‘R’ Us!”
We’re celebrating the 40th anniversary of 1978 this year – so, let’s get off to a hearty start with a pair of vintage commercials.
First, a good find for Toys “R” Us featuring the entire Giraffe family dancing across America. The spot aired in November of 1978. Second, a spot for Long John Silver’s restaurant from December of ’78.
Yes, another year has sped by. Therefore, as is tradition…Happy New Year everyone! I hope you have a wonderful 2018. Enjoy a Rankin/Bass holiday repeat from previous years.
Should auld Animagic be forgot… (‘Have a Happy New Year,’ ‘Rudolph’s Shiny New Year,’ 1976)
On behalf of myself and Bionic Disco, here’s wishing you a joyous and wonderful new year!
Let’s celebrate with belting out the “Have A Happy New Year” song from Rankin/Bass’ 1976 Animagic holiday special, Rudolph’s Shiny New Year. The tune is sung primarily by Red Skelton. Music & lyrics by Johnny Marks. Arranged & conducted by Maury Laws.

A very happy New Year’s Eve to everyone! For our last vintage commercial of the year we have something appropriate for the occasion – a spot for Korbel Champagne. This one aired in November of 1971. Pop!
