Posted on 17. Mar, 2019 by .

As far back as I can remember, McDonald’s has been serving the Shamrock Shake during March. It’s obviously a nod to St. Patrick’s Day. I look forward to it every year. It’s basically a green vanilla shake with a hint of mint. The picture above is from 2008. McDonald’s introduced the McCafe beverages in their […]

The year was 1988. Our Sunday St. Louis Post Dispatch Newspaper arrived. Normally, I’d check out the funnies and look at the toy sections of the ads for things that I wanted. This morning was different. There was a cardboard record attached to a McDonalds promo Ad. A Free Record? This was unheard of! In […]

I’ve talked about McDonaldland before. In the 70s, McDonald’s used a fictional place called McDonaldland in their tv commercials. It was where all the characters like Ronald, Grimace, Hamburglar, etc. lived. In the 80s they redesigned the some of characters and kept Ronald in the real world instead of the trippy McDonaldland. Back in the […]

For those that know me, I quote a lot of TV. I mean A LOT! Most of the time people don’t even know I’m quoting something and it goes right over their heads. They think that I may actually be clever. Well, that’s not always the case because 90% of the time I’m quoting something […]

I just recently found a video of my family opening presents on Christmas morning in 1988. Today, I’m going to compare the presents I got to what my brother received. Back in 1988, I had a Commodore 64. Most of my friends had the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Well, my Mom would never get me […]

Black Friday Commercials from 1982

I know it’s pretty cliche for me to do a post on commercials. I’ve done it before and several other sites have as well. But, sometimes you find an old VHS tape recorded back in 1982. It was a Thanksgiving airing of Mary Poppins, chock full of Christmas ads. It’s funny how back in 1982 […]

I’m not the first person to do a collection of “Spooky” commercials during the Halloween season, and I won’t be the last. There’s a couple here that I have to explain why they are spooky, and others are obviously spooky and/or Halloween themed. If the VHS tapes you ripped weren’t recorded in October, you have […]

I’ve written about board games before. But, today we’ll look at a few “board game” commercials that I found on some of my old VHS tapes. All these commercials aired in 1986, but the commercials could be older than that since some commercials get played for years. Look at the old Tootsie Pop “How many […]

Back in the 80s there was an insanely delicious frozen treat that hit store shelves. And as you can guess from the title of this post, I’m talking about Jello Pudding Pops. Yep, that’s Bill Cosby. Let’s forget about his despicable ways for a minute. He was the spokesman for Jello. Since the 80s, when […]
