National Commercial Day

Woo hoo, it's National Radio Commercial Day.
 Now, everyone knows I love listening to old time radio but playing radio commercials on a blog might be a bit boring for some people so I decided to share a few old television commercials with you. I think they're good fun.
I especially like the Jeno's Pizza Roll commercial which combines satires of a Mrs. Olson Folgers commercial, one for a mouth wash and a detergent for a laugh.
Do you remember any of them? Have a favorite?
Celebrate the day by watching a few of these classic commercials. 


The Ipana commercial brags of being better than fluoride toothpastes.
Too bad more of us didn't listen as we now know that fluoride lowers IQ in children, makes bones brittle and has some very nasty side effects!

Notice Sandra Dee in the Coca Cola commercial? Now that is a genuine North Jersey accent.

I hope you enjoyed this commercial interruption.


  1. Annie, I love the old commercials. I remember the cereal ones & the Charlie Tuna one. The cereal commercials always made us want it for the toy inside. I still remember being so excited as we opened the box! :) Thank you for sharing this, & taking us down memory lane & giving a smile. Have a blessed Friday. Hugs!

  2. Hi, Annie! Very entertaining. So funny that so many of those products aren't around any more. Every Christmas I remember the Norelco commercial with Santa riding a Norelco shaver! Thanks for sharing these!

  3. Hi Annie! You brought back some great memories! I loved Charlie Tuna! And these certainly are wonderful memories, they sure don't make commercials like these! Have a great Friday!

  4. Hi Annie! I do love the old commercials! They are before my time but it's so neat seeing them. Thanks for sharing them. I'm an 80's kid so I remember the "Where's the Beef" commercial. That was so huge. lol Hope you're having a great weekend!

  5. Love the old commercials Annie. I always hated the instant and freeze dried coffee commercials being a coffee addict myself, but I liked the Jeno's Pizza Roll one. Thanks for the memories my friend. Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. I do not remember those commercials, but they are good. Thanks for sharing them.
    Happy Labor Day!!
