Some Sweet Cereal Shillers!
I usually discuss serials here, but this once let me talk about cereals. Specifically the cereal Captain Crunch. It's a dandy cereal when you're in the mood for something sweet, but it's those vintage commercials that really trip my trigger. Done by Jay Ward and the same gang that produced Bullwinkle and Rocky among others, these are entertaining bits of merchandising.
Here's the very first Captain Crunch commercial.
And for a bonus here's the very first Quisp and Quake commerical.
And here's an offbeat debut for King Vitaman.
Here's a link which identifies the voice talents for these classic commericals.
