70s Spots: Wondra Lotion (1977)

Wondraful!

“It takes the day’s work right out of your hands.”

Here’s a pair of Wondra Skin Conditioning Lotion commercials from Proctor & Gamble that were produced in 1977. The first features an antiques shop, the second, a couple preparing a new baby’s room. There’s the rub!

70s Spots: Clint Eastwood & Scripto Easy Roller (1978)

Clint ‘n’ Clyde, 1978

“Watch out! Clint Eastwood is headed your way!”

Here’s a TV spot advertising the original release of Clint Eastwood’s Every Which Way But Loose. The promo aired on Christmas Day, 1978.

After that, a Star Wars-influenced sci fi comedy commercial for Scripto’s Easy Roller pen. This one aired in early February ’78 and was likely produced during Star Wars fever in 1977.

70s Spots: Pink Panther Flakes Cereal (1971 & ’72)

Think Pink

“Tickle me pink!”

A pair of perfectly precious Post Pink Panther Flakes cereal spots today. I’m fairly certain these animated commercials were produced by DePatie-Freleng studios. The copyright marks are 1971 and 1972 (or both possibly circa ’72). Pour yourselves out a hearty bowl.

70s Spots: Kellogg’s Special K Cereal & Feen-A-Mint Gum (1970)

‘Look for the big red K.’

“America’s favorite high-protein cereal.”

Two chewable commercials now. First up, a spot for Kellogg’s Special K cereal. This one aired on New Year’s Day, 1971 (produced in 1970 natch’.) After that, a spot from May 1970 for Feen-a-mint laxative gum and mints.

I recognize the actor playing the mother in the Kellogg’s commercial but can’t come up with a name. Your help would be appreciated.

Dolph Sweet ringing the Bell

“Keeping your phone system the best in the world.”

Here’s two spots for Bell System telephone. In the first, from December of 1976, we find actor Dolph Sweet getting us up-to-date on the phone company’s recycling program.

In the second commercial, from December of ’79, you’ll find some animation and advice on leaving musty old letter writing behind.

“Squwak! Ring around the collar!”

Grooming and cleaning are the order of the day. First, we have a 1971 spot for Wisk featuring the product’s famous “collar” tagline and a feisty parrot.

After that, a commercial for Gillette’s The Dry Look from January of 1971 (produced in 1970).
