Does anybody else remember these classic commercial lines?

"If you think it's butter, but it's snot, it's Chiffon."

"Hot Kids, Armour Hot Kids, The Kids Dogs Love to Bite."

"Half the fun of being goosed is Red Feet Shoes."

"P-i-m-p-l-e-s, Nestle makes the very best, Acne."

1. I remember the first two!

And I also remember this one, though I didn't remember it was also for Chiffon Margarine. "It's not nice to fool Mother Nature!"

2. I thought that one was Parkay...

I remember it too, but I thought it was Parkay margarine. And I would've guessed it was a lot more recent than the 1970s.

3. I think you took some liberties with those...

I remember all of them except the Red Feet Shoes one.

When I rent or buy videos of old 1960s TV shows, I always wish they would leave the commercials in. They would be as interesting as the shows themselves nowadays, as much of a trip down Memory Lane and also they would help to capture the ambience of the shows as well. Especially the cigarette commercials. THOSE would be especially quaint now. "I'd walk a mile for a Camel." "LSMFT (Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco)" The Benson-Hedges commercials with the longer cigarettes getting stuck in car windows and elevator doors. The Virginia Slims commercials, "You've Come A Long Way Baby."

14. Plop plop fizz fizz




A little factoid. This jingle, as well as some other classic advertising campaigns like "I can't believe I ate the whole thing" was created by Paul Margulies, father of actress Julianna Margulies.
