Subject: Jingles you remember.
From: The Shambles
Date: 18 Oct 02 - 03:27 PM

As the whole point of the jingle is to make you remember both them and more importantly the product, I was wondering how many of them we still do remember and if they do make us buy the product.

In some cases I think they work so well, we often remember the jingle long after the product has ceased to exist. I wonder if there are many examples of this and also I wonder the reason why?

This still exists, well I know it does as Mrs Shanbles has just shown me the bottle she picked up today. This jingle works so well I wonder why they ever changed it?

1001 cleans a big big carpet, for less than half-a-crown.......for less than half-a-crown.

Well one reason is that there are no more half-a-crowns....

One I remember, for all the wrong reasons, is the Watneys Red Barrel jingle.

Actually the only version I remember perfickly is the Real Ale Drinkers parody

" Whats the beer that makes you queer,
Watney's Keg Red Barrel,
It always is an awfull brew,
It always makes you want to spew,
So come along and join the crew,
Botcott Keg Red Barrel"

Here's one that's haunted me for about forty-five years. It was a Christmas jingle marketing General Electric Christmas tree lights.

Here's a midi of the melody, and here's what little I remember of the lyrics:

There's love and laughter in the air
Dum dum dum as can be
Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
May G.E. light your tree.

Make no mistake. If this had been a complete Christmas song (and perhaps it was) it would have made a fine addition to anyone's Christmas collection. I remember it getting positive caller feedback on CFRB in Toronto back in the 50's(?)

Ring any (Christmas) bells with anyone?

Just dial our number

As you can see, it was a long time ago but I've never forgotten.

A San Francisco version of "See the USA in your Chevrolet" for a local dealer in the 1960s went:
"See Ellis Brookes today, for your Chevrolet,
corner of Bush and Van Ness.
He's got a deal for you, oh what a deal for you,
the kind of deal you'll like the best."

Camera then shows ol' Ellis Brookes himself, sitting behind a desk with five coffee cans stacked on it. "I'll give you five pounds of Hills Bros. coffee just for coming in and taking a look." (very gravelly voice)

Misophist, I was raised in Tulsa, & I don't remember that one! Nor do I remember the "Armour" exchange, but when I was a teen I mainly called the "Riverside" exchange, and had relatives in "Circle" & "Hickory" exchanges--does anybody else remember dialing numbers using 2 letters followed by 5 numbers?
    I DO remember the following radio (TV?) jingle from Tulsa, based upon the actual last name of the owner of the company (Needham) which some advertising firm came up with, which was finally dropped after many years because it was not politically correct:
   (psuedo indian drum sound):
BOOM boom boom boom, BOOM boom boom boom, BOOM!

Oh, boy, now you've got me started....

World's shortest TV commercial: "Try White Cap!" (do...la-fa)

Once upon a time there was an engineer
Choo-Choo Charlie was his name, we hear
He had an engine and he sure had fun
He used Good & Plenty candy to make his train run
Charlie says, "Love my Good & Plenty!"
Charlie says, "Really rings the bell"
Charlie says, "Love my Good & Plenty,
Don't know any other candy that I love so well."

N-E-S-T-L-E-S
Nestles makes the very best
Choc...late

"I want my Maypo!"

"Taste me, taste me! Come on and taste me!"
That's all Doral asks. "Taste me!" (One of the last before the government pulled the plug on TV cigarette ads.)

(to the tune of the William Tell Overture:)
Have a Lark, have a Lark, have a Lark today!

Stronger than dirt! Stronger than dirt!
New Ajax laundry detergent is stronger than dirt!

Mr. Clean gets rid of dirt and grime and grease in just a minute
Mr. Clean will clean your whole house, and everything that's in it
Mr. Clean, Mr. Clean, Mr. Clean

Call for Philip Morris!

It's the radial age... (for B.F. Goodrich, to the tune of "It's a Sign of the Times"--Petula Clark?)

Things go better with Coca-Cola, things go better with Coke
Life is much more fun when you're refreshed
And Coke refreshes you best
Fun goes better with, food goes better with, things go better with Coke

Double your pleasure, double your fun
With double good, double good, Doublemint gum

Winston tastes good like a (clap! clap!) cigarette should
(which was eventually followed by:)
What do you want--good grammar or good taste?
Pardon our grammar, but: Winston tastes good like a cigarette should!

Rice-a-Roni, the San Francisco treat!
Rice-a-Roni, everybody's got the beat
Started out where cablecars play their song
Now try it at home before very long
Rice-a-Roni, the San Francisco treat!

There's just one Schlitz, yeah, yeah,
Nothing else comes near
When you're out of Schlitz
You're out of beer

And some for the Philadelphians:

Who's the world's smallest Chevrolet dealer? "Me, Marv Pollow"
[repeat]
Tell your friends about Marv Pollow, the world's smallest Chevrolet dealer!

Hey, get your cold beer, get your ice cold Ballantine Beer
It's the beer that's crisp and icily light
Clear cold taste that's precisely right
Frosty, lively, crystally clear
The crisp refresher, Ballantine, Ballantine Beer

Tastykake Cakes and Pies!

Atlantic keeps your car on the go
When driving for pleasure
In any kind of weather
Atlantic keeps your car on the go, go, go, go
Keep on the go with Atlantic

Help, somebody stop me....

Aloha,

And Kaleea, my phone number (in Philadelphia) was DE2-9220, that is, DEvonshire 2-9220. My grandmother's was PI4-0981 (PIoneer), but my other grandmother's was PI2-9216 (PIlgrim--go figure). In the northeast section of the city we also had MAyfair 4, FIdelity 2, and I forget the others. It wasn't until about 1969, I believe, that people started using just numbers.

Aloha,

"Baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and Chevrolet."

Who can forget:
"I'd love to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony...
I'd like to buy the world a Coke...etc."

"Put a Tic-Tac in your mouth and get a bang outta life."

Still have a paper placemat printed with the lyrics/music for this one at my mom's, but I can't remember much of the words right now:

The Ronald McDonald song
"Who's the most kid loving clown...blah blah blah...
Ronald, Ronald McDonald."

"Who wears short shorts?
We wear short shorts.
If you dare wear short shorts
Nair for short shorts"

"I can bring home the bacon,
Fry it up in a pan
And never never let you forget you're a man...
Cause I'm a woman--Enjolie"

"The neat round spaghetti you can eat with a spoon
Uh-oh! Spaghetti-0's"

"A & W Rootbeer's got that frosty mug taste"

Think that's enough from me.

Geez Mark...We really did grow up together.....Those all were just great!!

FOR SORCHA:
GILLETTE BLUE BLADES
To look sharp every time you shave,
To feel sharp and be on the ball,
To be sharp, Use Gillette Blue Blades,
It's the quickest, slickest shave of all!

How about Edy Adams, wife of cigar famous Ernie Kovacs, singing for Muriel Cigars with that sexy voice and the tag line, "Why don't you pick one up and smoke it sometime?"

"Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz,
Oh what a relief it is."

"This is the cereal that's shot from guns"
--Quaker Cereals to the tune of 1812 Overture.

I simply cannot sing the last line of jingle bells without thinking, "Norelco is the shaver gift to give on Christmas Day."

"Winston tastes good like a cigarette should."

"To a Frenchman it's the Eiffel Tower, to a Dutchman it's a pretty flower, to an Indian it's a monument, to a smoker, it's a Kent"

Jingles, played by Andy Devine, was Wild Bill Hickok's side kick. He waddle down the street whining "Wait foe meeeee, Wahld Beeeyul!". Their sponsor was some sugar-coated breakfast cereal -- puffed corn, I think. Sugar Pops!!

Other famous side kicks from those early years include Gabby Hayes (whose was he -- maybe Gene Autry ?) and Pat Brady, whose Jeep Nellybelle was always being told, "Whoaaaaaa, Nellybelle!", in support of the Roy Rogers show. Don't remember their sponsor.

Then there was game-legged Chester who limped alongside of Marshall Dillon, discussing Miss Kitty's virtues.

Yer right, Pat -- this could go on for fifty odd years!!

Yeah Amos....."Sugar Pops are Tops!"

Gabby Hayes is probably most associated with the classic sidekick role in B movie westerns, often with Roy Rogers. Gene Autry had several, the two most prominent were Smiley Burnette (later on Petticaot Junction-train engineer) and Pat Buttram (later on the sister series of Green Acres oddly enough). Ther was of course the famous "Hey Cisco---Hey Pancho" between Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carrillo. Funny thing though....on all of those TV shows, I don't remember the sponsor except for Wild Bill and Gene Autry who was sponsored by Wrigley's Doublemint Gum.

There were an awful lot of 50's shows closely associated with only one sponsor because that was the way of things then. Geritol sponsored the quiz "21" and Revlon sponsored "The $64,000. Question." The funniest story I recently learned relating to that type of single sponsorship was that in the early days of Sid Caesar's show, the sponsor was Admiral Televisions. The Caesar show was such a hit that Admiral couldn't keep up with the demand for new sets and had to build another factory.......the problem being that they couldn't afford the factory and the sponsorchip both so they had to cancel the Caesar show......the first time and I think the only time a show was cancelled because it was too successful! Sid and his gang were actually off the air for a few months until someone else came along.

From those shows the main slogan I recall was for "DeSoto" with "Tell 'em Groucho sent ya'!" Of course as someone else mentioned Uncle Miltie (and before him Ed Wynn) said that "You could trust your car to the man who wears the star." And when Amos above mentioned Chevy and "See the USA, in your Chevrolet, America's inviting you to call, See the USA in your Chevrolet, America's the greatest land of all.".......Well that always ended with a big "MUHWAW" sound that we all did emulating the thrown kiss from Dinah Shore.

This may be thread drift, but I remember most of a Mad Magazine advertising-related parody of Poe's "The Raven" from the early '60s but I don't think I remember all of it. I've been checking on-line resources (my mother confiscated the original magazine years ago, damn!) but can't seem to find any of the poetry from that era.

Here goes:

The Spaniel

Once upon a midnight dreary while I pondered weak and weary
Over many an advertising copy that I wrote for Macy's store.
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping
As of someone loudly rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
"Tis some client there," I muttered. Only this and nothing more.

Then I felt my terror worsen, for my guest was not a person.
In there stepped a cocker spaniel, naturally I jumped in fear.
Tried to climb an oaken panel, ripping there my new grey flannel
But the spaniel only stood there, speaking out with voice so clear
Speaking out like Jack Lescoulie in a voice both loud and clear.
Quoth the spaniel, "Drink Blatz beer."

How I marvelled this ungainly dog that did commercials plainly
Thoughts of fortunes I could make now make me shake down to my knees.
But the spaniel set me grieving then by turning tail and leaving
Chasing him along the hallway, crying out, "Stay with me me please!"
Chasing him along the hallway, crying out, "Stay with me please!"
Quoth the spaniel, "Eat Kraft Cheese."

Anybody remember this or know where I can find the complete text? I loved it, of course, because not only was it a parody, but it incorporated most of the tv commercials of its day.

And (more Mad Magazine) neon signs with letters missing: "You Can [be] Su[r]e If It's Westinghouse" (You Can Sue If It's Westinghouse)

It's been 40 years, but I can't see the advertiser without thinking of the parody.

Anyone remember the Hills Brothers Coffee TV commercial where the spoon says it wants to be a fork and the voice over explains how wonderful it is to be a spoon and stir Hills Brothers Coffee? I think it was around 1958 or 1959. That year for Hallowe'en, I went trick or treating as a fork. (Made my own costume, of course.)

Years after knowing this as a commercial I found out that there was a previous actual SONG that went, "Let's have another cup of coffee,
And let's have another piece of pie."

Then there was the percolator commercial, that showed coffee bubbling up into the glass top of a percolator -- the first couple of coffee-bubbles had a soundtrack of sort of musical "blup -- blup, blup --- blup, blup, blup" which then transmogrified into a tune.

Oh, geez. Now I've got a bunch of them running around my brain & they won't stop til I type them up. If you are nice people and want me to help me retain my sanity, you'll fill in the missing words...

Mobil:
We're the rocker arm assembly,
Assembly, assembly,
We're the rocker arm assembly
And we don't like dirt!
   A detergent gasoleeeeeene
   Helps keep your engine running smooth and cleeeeeeen -
It's Mobil, oh 'tis Mobil gasoline!


The STP commercial (sung to the tune of the Toreador song from Carmen)
STP! You need some STP!
One little can keeps it running free!
[something], cooler, quieter, more precise,
[something something something] nice
[something something] we all agree
The best is STP!


Shell (I think):
Bringin' home the oil me boys,
Bringin' home the oil,
Workin' all around the world
Bringin' home the oil,
[something] on a giant ship,
[no clue this line here]
Sailin' into Bantry Bay
Bringin' home the oil.


Hamm's beer:
From the land of sky-blue waters - (echo: wa-ah-ters)
Comes the water best for brewing
Hamm's the beer refreshing
Never stops refreshing you...


Bay gasoline:
[there's a verse before this]
When you're driving down that superhighway
It's a great feeling to know
Bay is designed to match Michigan weather,
Whether it's hot or cold!
Bay gasoline has Dow
Get Dow knowhow
Get Dow knowhow with every drop of Bay!


Chef Boyardee:
At lunchtime the bell tolls
Spaghetti and meatballs
For you and for me
From Chef Boyardee!


Yipes! Stripes! Beechnut gum!


Oh, and I learned the Empire jingle (988-2300 Empire!) from spending way too many hours taping _The Wild Wild West_ off of WGN.


Thread creeplet: anybody know all the words to that Jimmeny Cricket safety movie we had to watch in grade school? The chorus went:
I'm no fool, nosirree
I'm gonna live to be 33! [number got larger each verse]
Let's play safe for you and me,
'Cause I'm no fool!

Does Pepsodent still exist? If not it would seem to be a great marketing idea to revive this product (and perhaps many of the others)? For those old enough to remember it - the name alone would bring back the jingle and no further advertising would ever be required. But of course the current 'ad' people are too young to remember.

Accepting of course that those old enough to remember Pepsodent do still have their own teeth to brush.

The complete Buster Brown jingle (I think) was:

    "Does your shoe have a boy inside?
       What a funny place for a boy to hide.
    Does your shoe have a dog there too?
       A dog and a boy and a foot in a shoe.

    Well the boy is Buster Brown, and the dog is Tighe, his friend.
       And they're really just a picture,
       but it's fun to play pretend.

    So, look, look, look in the telephone book
       for the store that sells the shoe
       with the picture of the boy and the dog inside
       so you can put your foot in too!"

    In the New York area, we had Schaefer beer sponsoring many of the baseball games:

   Schaefer is the one beer to have when you're having more than one!

Real folksingers did commercials, which how I first heard folk music.


The Mobil commercial alluded to above, the one about the rocker arm assembly? I believe it was sung by the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem.

Then there's this one written by Tom Paxton:
My dog's bigger than your dog,
My dog's bigger than yours.
My dog's bigger 'cuase he eats Ken-L Ration
My dog's bigger than yours.


And this, written and sung by Tom Glazer, aired in New York for about 40 years and taugh generations the word "incontrovertible":

Who was the first to conquer space?
It's incontrovertible
That the first to conquer living space
Was a Castro Convertible
Who conquers space with fine design?
Who saves you money all the time?
Who's tops in the convertible line?
Castro Convertible.


And this from the 1950s, written and sung by Bob Gibson:

A cagey old pirate who lived in a tree
Loved syrup much better than golden jewelry.
He buried his treasure chest out in the glade
Filled with real maple syrup by Vermont Maid
So learn well this lesson from my serenade:
There's no finer syrup than sweet Vermont Maid
It's naturally flavored with the very best grade
Of real maple sugar -- that's my Vermont Maid.

I only just stumbled onto this thread, and it has been a real trip down memory lane. I once ran a "TV jingles and theme songs" workshop at the Folklore Society of Greater Washington mini-festival, but I think I'm strictly an also-ran when it comes to remembering jingles!

Four comments:

1. Mark Cohen (19 Oct 02 - 05:45 AM) made note of

Hey, get your cold beer, get your ice cold Ballantine Beer
It's the beer that's crisp and icily light
Clear cold taste that's precisely right
Frosty, lively, crystally clear
The crisp refresher, Ballantine, Ballantine Beer

Here's the way I remember it from the Washington DC area:

To be crisp, a beer
must be icily light
with true lager flavor
precisely right
lively golden, crystally clear
the crisp refresher (duh duh duh duh duh duh)
Ballantine, Ballantine beer!
Heeeeeeey, get your cold beer!
Heeeeeeey, get your Ballantine
Heeeeeeey, get your cold cold beer
get your ice-cold Ballantine beer!

2. Giac (19 Oct 02 - 12:50 PM) mentioned "Looky, looky, looky, Here comes Cookie, Cook's Pest Control." My mother-in-law taught my daughter a song that goes "Looky, Looky, Looky, Here comes [or maybe "there goes"] Cookie, Walking down the street". I'm betting that Giac's Pest Control ad derives from that song.

3. freightdawg (19 Feb 04 - 06:45 PM) mentioned Burma Shave signs. I once actually saw a genuine, for real Burma Shave sign series(it was in the sixties, while my dad was driving us to Atlantic City NJ.) It wasn't terribly memorable, went like this:

King Henry VIII
Sure had trouble
Short term wives
Long term stubble
Burma Shave

4. Finally, here is one that has stuck in my mind since the sixties:

Reach for a peach
a peach of a bleach
new Bleach Tabs by Barcoleen

I'm not sure of the spelling of "Barcoleen", and I don't believe the product exists anymore.

Wow! I knew Paxton had written "My Dog's Bigger..." but had no idea that Tom Glazer was behind the Castro Convertible jingle that I do remember vividly (with Bernadette Castro as a small child pulling out the bed on the TV commercial, many years before her gig as New York State Parks Commissioner). Also didn't know that the late great Bob Gibson wrote or sang jingles. That Vermont Maid one may have been a little before my time.

    The Kingston Trio did a series of 7-UP commercials way back when Dave Guard was still in the group. I don't remember hearing them on the air either, but they're included on the "Capitol Years" boxed set of KT material.

The Kingston Trio also did a radio commercial for Ry-Krisp, "the bite-size cracker," and the Limelighters did one for L&M cigarettes:

Start fresh
With L&M
Stay fresh
With L&M
Unlock a whole new world
Of fresh smoking pleasure.
Start fresh, start fresh
With L&M.

They did another L&M commercial where they sang "They give you flavor, flavor, flavor." In a 1988 phone interview either Alex Hassilev or Lou Gottlieb told me that when they were goofing around at that recording session they would sing "They give you cancer, cancer, cancer."

And Tom Glazer told me in a live interview in 1987 0r 1988 that he was still receiving royalties for the Castro Convertible jingle but it was at 1950s rates so it wasn't much. This from the man who wrote "A Dollar Ain't a Dollar Anymore," so he should know.

Clueless Don, when your dad drove you to Atlantic City, did you go over the Tacony Palmyra Bridge? The toll was 5 cents...even when I drove across it myself for the first time in 1970, in my dad's '59 Chevy BelAir (the one with the fins). Do you remember Egg Harbor? I loved that name! And the Knife and Fork Inn. My sister and I used to play the gas station game on the drive from Philadelphia through the Pine Barrens to Atlantic City. We'd each choose one gasoline company and count the stations along the way. As I recall, I always chose Atlantic ('cause we were going to Atlantic City, of course!) and I always won. Some of the other stations back then (early 60's) were: Mobil, Esso, Flying A, Gulf, Texaco, Amoco...and the rest are lost for the time being. The opening of the Atlantic City Expressway in 1965 changed that trip dramatically, from farm stands and the Renault Winery to just another big multilane highway. But I digress...We should do a thread on old Atlantic City: "More than Monopoly!"

Aloha,

Mark Cohen - I don't remember a whole lot about that trip. I think it was in the early sixties. Someone had told my Dad about a "back roads" way to get to Atlantic City from DC. I remember looking for a road called "Buckshutem" - I'm not sure that we ever found it.

This was back before gambling transformed Atlantic City. I remember going to a show at the Steel Pier - I think the headliners were the McGuire Sisters.

I remember all of the Gas Station names that you mention. I remember when Esso changed to Exxon. I remember when Amoco changed to American, and later on when American changed back to Amoco! Now the local Amoco stations seem to be changing to BP - very confusing.

Getting back to the subject of jingles (remember jingles? this is a thread about jingles...), I can't really remember any jingles about any of the Gas Stations you mention, except for a dimly remembered snippet that went something like "Texaco tower of power...".

Charmion actually, who can't be bothered re-setting the cookie.

To those who can't remember who sponsored Roy Rogers' TV show, it was General Mills, maker of Post cereals. Remember the branding iron putting the big G on the top of the cereal box?

"Good, good whole-wheat Shreddies!"

My Dad used to quote a jingle he read in an English magazine about 1924:

"High o'er the stile leapt Sunny Jim;
Force [a breakfast cereal] was the power that lifted him."

Cleanser jingles:

"It's so easy when you use LessToil!" (1958-1960)

"Ajax: It cleans like a white tornado!" (declaimed, not sung; early '70s)

"New Ajax laundry detergent: it's stronger than dirt!" (sung; mid-60s, I think)

Ten years ago I happened to pop into an Italian restaurant in Amsterdam first thing on Christmas morning (don't ask), and the family that ran it were all gathered handing round presents. Without thinking I blurted "migliori auguri" to them. You guessed it - they came back at me with a torrent of congratulatory Italian, surprised at my mastery of their tongue!

Happiness is...the taste of Kent
More taste, fine tobacco
That's what happiness is

There were other versions of "To a ____ it's a _____, to a smoker, it's a Kent" but I can't remember them.

Then there was the Winston commercial (this might have been the last campaign before they stopped cigarette commercials on TV) where they had some stuffy grammarian saying, "It's incorrect to say 'like a cigarette should,' it should be 'as a cigarette should.'" And then a whole chorus line would explode into:

What do you want, good grammar or good taste?
What do you want--
Good grammar or good taste?
Pardon our grammar, but...
Winston tastes good, LIKE a cigarette should

Reading some of these has reminded me of the 'Corona' soft drinks jingle:

"Corona - Sparkles up with joy,
"Corona - For every girl and boy
"Come drink it up to the very last drop
"It's got a sparkle in the middle and a tingle at the top."

As a sideline - At one point Corona did door-to-door delivery and, when Cyclamates (an artificial sweetened IIRC) were suspected to be carcenogenic and were banned the lorrys were posted with the message "Cyclamate Free!" across the back - A elderly neighbour, having bought several bottles demanded her "free" cyclamates - it took the driver some time to peruade her that she wasn't being fiddled out of a free gift.

I loved Freedomland!!! It was laid out like a map of the US, with rides whose themes corresponded to the different locations. In the Chicago Fire, they had an old-fashioned fire truck that put out a real fire in a building. I grabbed the long wooden handle of the fire truck, which promptly yanked me up off the ground. I let go, fell off, and the handle hit me in the head! There was also the San Francisco earthquake, one of several in which you rode in a little car through a series of displays. The fake buildings fell down and "almost" hit you. Most of the rest is lost in the dim recesses of a child's memory, but thanks for reminding me, CB! That must have been the same trip to NY when we went to the Bronx Zoo and the Hayden Planetarium. I'm guessing it was around 1960--does that fit with Freedomland's existence?

Aloha,
Mark

"Chamber's caskets" is getting regularly sung at pub sessions in Sydney as well as by the Roaring Forties, one of Australia's great shanty singing ensembles.
As to memorable jingles;

I'm louis the fly, I'm Louis the fly,
Straight from rubbish tip to you.
Spreading disease with the greatest of ease,
Straight from rubbish tip to you.
I'm bad, I'm mean, I'm mighty unclean,
Afraid of no-one..
But the man with the can of Mortein.
Hate that word mortein.
(various choking and dying in agony noises)
One spray and Louis the fly-
Apple of his old mother's eye was louis,
Poor, dead Louis,
Louis the fly,
A victim of Mortein.

Performed with the right roaring-twenties gangster movie touch, it was perhaps Australia's zaniest ad.
Two that have stuck when I would prefer to have long forgotten them were;

"You'll look a little lovelier each day,
With fabulous pink Camay"
I hope the soap has ceased to exist.

The other- sang to the Toreador's song:

Use a Rolla door,
That's what it's for,
You'll get much more,
With a Rolla door,
A hundred and forty nine stock sizes,
Each is custom made,
DO NOT BE AFRAID!
Dependable as a clock,
The door with the centre lift lock,
You'll get much more with Rolla door.

There are others equally appalling, but those two are the most bubble gum- like for adhesion to inside surfaces of the brain.

And the memories continue! I actually went to Freedomland when I was a lad (I was 10 for most of 1960.) I think I remember an "attraction" called "The Casa Loca", within which water seemed to flow uphill (there is a similar place today at Idlewild amusement park in Pennsylvania, called "Confusion Hill".) I seem to remember that when Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev visited the USA, he requested permission to visit Disneyland, which was denied. But (once again, as I recall) he was given permission to visit Freedomland. I don't know if this recollection is true, or if Mr. Khrushchev actually visited Freedomland.

It isn't a jingle, but the reference to "The series of Heinz beans ads with the young lad in it" reminded me of the ad campaign featuring "H.J. and Heinz, the almost human beans".

To keep things on topic, here is another jingle:

They said it couldn't be done
They said nobody could do it
but L&M is low in tar
with more taste to it.
L ... and M
don't settle for any other
low tar
more taste
don't settle for one ...
without the other.

Yes, yes, I remember the Chesterfiled jingle, but have forgotten nearly all the words. What I remember better is the parody of the Chesterfield jingle in Mad or Humbug or one of the other circa 1960 humor magazines.
The Chesterfield jingle ran on TV and it showed some rugged individualist-type guy taking a cigarette break from his important macho work. So the magazine parody showed what we today would call a homeless person finding a cigarette butt in the street, and it went...

Hustling handouts, guzzling cheap wine,
Stopping people, asking for a dime,
Staggering and reeling you will find a man
Stoops and takes big pleasure when and where he can.

When I was about four (Los Angeles, early 1940s), I liked a radio program sponsored by the Bullocks department store & hosted by a character called Uncle Whoa Bill. In those days, parents usually monitored their children's listening, and so sponsors had to please parents to get at the children. This program featured propaganda in favor of good behavior. The host was named after "Whoa, Bill!", an injunction nominally addressed to a horse, but representing what you were supposed to say to yourself when tempted to naughtiness. That is, he was Inhibition personified. The opening jingle, TTTO "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean", went, pretty nearly,

Good evening. We are the Whoa-Billers.
Of dear Uncle Whoa Bill we sing
And Bullocks, the store that is friendly,
And this is the message we bring:

Whoa, Bill! Whoa, Bill!
How happy we are when we learn to say
Whoa, Bill! Whoa, Bill!
[last line forgotten]

Later on, my brother & I were partial to a singing commercial for a car dealer called Madman Muntz, TTTO "Vienna Blood". The only lines I remember are

For Muntz is on a selling spree
. . .
So buy your car from Muntz.

Re: The Spaniel

I stumbled across this thread (goodness knows if I'll ever find it again) and I do have the complete text for "The Spaniel". It's in "We're Still Using That Greasy MAD Stuff" (c)1959, 1963, E. C. Publications, Signet Q6499.

by Edgar, Al, & Moe

Once upon a midnight cautious, while I pondered weak and nauseous,
Over some advertising copy I had wrote for Macy's Store,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a yapping,
As of someone loudly yapping, yapping at my office door.
"'Tis some client there," I muttered, "yapping at my office door -
    Only this and nothing more."

Then I felt my terror worsen, for my guest was not a person!
In there stepped a cocker spaniel; naturally I jumped in fear.
Tried to climb an oaken panel, ripping there my new grey flannel;
But the spaniel merely stood there, speaking out with voice so clear -
Speaking out like Jack Lescoulie, in a voice both loud and clear -
    Quoth the spaniel- _"Drink Blatz Beer!"_

How I marveled this ungainly dog who did commercials plainly;
How he spoke the message clearly; selling points he underscored.
For I could not help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet could mouth a slogan without sounding slightly bored -
    Quoth the spaniel: _"Buy a Ford!"_

Thus this dog with voice like Murrow made my heavy brow unfurrow;
Thoughts of fortunes I could make now made me shake down to my knees.
But the spaniel set me grieving then by turning tail and leaving.
Naturally, I begged him tarry, crying out, "Stay with me, please!"
    Quoth the spaniel, _"Eat Kraft Cheese!"_

The Muriel cigar commercial is coming back to me.
From googling it, I learned that it was Edie Adams who crooned the Muriel cigar jingles for 18 years. (I didn't know her name at the time I saw the commercials). One jingle was a parody of "Hey, Big Spender" from "Sweet Charity."

But the one I remember started out,
"I'm today's new muriel, the fine cigar
(something something something something something) by far.
(Can't recall the next line.)
"Why dontcha pick me up an' smoke me sometime."

But as I recall it, it was done as a voice over for a cartoon (female) cigar clad in a sort of "harem" outfit.

According to a post at this website this takeoff on Mae West was banned as too risqué for TV at the time.

Tarheel remembers miller,(highlife!)...miller, (highlife!) the champaign of bottled beer!!! So do we. But, in the early 1960s, Bev worked on a market research project for Miller Brewing. A lot of respondents said we didn't drink Miller because it's way too expensive. Actually, it cost no more than other beers but the words "highlife" and "champagne" were giving the wrong impression.

They immediately changed their whole advertising approach and started showing people on TV drinking Miller beer at barbeques and bowling alleys, and dressed in work or very casual clothes. They changed their jingle to

When it's time to relax,

One beer stands clear. (beer after beer)

Well if you've got the time,

We've got the beer (Miller beer.)

Which is what Night Wing remembers.

Palisades Park was an amusement park in New Jersey, just across the Hudson River from New York City. I never went there, but I was subjected to their jingle many times in my youth:

Palisades has the rides
Palisades has the fun
Come on over
Shows and dancing are free
So's the parking, so gee,
Come on over
Palisades coast to coast
Where a dime buys the most
Palisades Amusement Park
Swings all day and after dark
Ride the coaster
Get cool in the waves of the pool
You'll have fun
So Come on over.

A small jingle for a local restaurant in Stockbridge, Mass. The geographic description was accurate enough that I was able to find it on my first visit to Stockbridge a few decades ago, although I'm sure the restaurant hasn't been there for quite some time now:

You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant.

For Nabisco Premium Saltine Crackers (circa 1964):

Premium Saltine reclosable pack,
You open 'em up and you close 'em back.
They stay crisp until
You get to the very last cracker.
Premium Saltine!

Fig Newton (same era):

The one and the only Fig Newton is a very remarkable thing...
(don't remember the rest, although the tune's still with me; may have been a girl on a tree swing in the TV commercial; anyone?)

It ended with: The one and the only Fig Newton is a very remarkable, very remarkable, very reMARKable thing!"

Others have mentioned a couple of sixties-era Chef Boyardee commercials (e.g. the "French school kids" one for Spaghetti and Meatballs: "Come when the bell calls (tolls?), spaghetti and meatballs"; and, another for Ravioli: "Ravioli, we like ravioli..."). There was a third one in that series, I believe for Beefaroni, featuring "British" school children. I don't know the name of the "English sounding" tune was or all the words, but there was something about "oodles and oodles of big (tasty?) noodles, and beef, tomato and cheese" -- or something like that.

But the one I wish had *never* aired was for Del Monte canned juices. I was in fourth grade when this one was popular and my last name was "Belmonte" back then, so you can imagine the rest:

Del Monte fruit juice drinks, so fresh, so light.
Del Monte fruit juice drinks -- good morning, noon or night!

"Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish, Quarter Pounder, French Fries, Icy Coke, Thick Shake, Sundae and Apple Pie. Beat, Beat, Beat and the dish ran away with the spoon".

My daughter remembers doing a handclap rhyme to this chant based on that commercial:
"Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish, Quarter Pounder, French Fries, Icy Coke, Thick Shake, Sundae and Apple Pie. You deserve a break today.And the dish ran away with the spoon".

She thinks was mid to late 1980s but she's not sure. Can someone confirm that? Also, I find it interesting that someone else remembers adding the line "and the dish rang away with the spoon" to this chant. Was this line {and the "You deserve a break today" line} in the original jingle or did kids just add it {those two lines?}

The Kit Kat Bar jingle {posted on this thread by GUEST
Date: 05 Aug 05 - 04:12 PM} with basically the same words given by Guest is also being used as a two partner children's handclap rhyme. The onlyu difference I've found is "Choclaty coating gonna make my day".

A lot of the ads mentioned here (mainly from the US) were used on the British offshore 'pirate' radio stations in the mid 1960s (Kent cigarettes, Coca Cola, Consulate menthol cigarettes, Doublemint Gum, etc.). There were also these (among others): Findus Fresh, Start the Day with Weetabix, Sunsilk shampoo ("four kinds of..."), Vitalis, Bulova watches, Palmolive shaving cream("smoothest way to start the day"), Juicy Fruit gum, etc. Some of these were used on TV as well as radio.

Some of them were released in the UK on CDs in the 1990s, along with CDs containing the pirate stations' own station ID jingles, e.g. the famous PAMS jingles for Radio London and Radio England, Britain Radio, etc. Anyone remember them?

I don't think any of these CDs are still available but anyone interested might find them on ebay or somewhere.

50's Ipana toothpaste had Bucky the Beaver singing:
"Brusha, Brusha, Brusha, with the new Ipana, Brusha, Brusha, Brusha, with the new Ipana..." can't remember the rest

The DoubleMint twins jingle began: "Double your pleasure, double your fun..."

Toni Shampoo slogan "Which twin has the Toni?" led to a lot of double entendre jokes.

Carling Black Label had a jingle that went "Hey Mabel, Another Black Label" or something like that. This was more often sung as a parody which went "Mabel, Get off the table, the dime is for the beer."

In the forties there was the bell-hop in the hotel lobby who shouted out "Call for Phillp Morris!!".

Also back then Buster Brown shoes had this ditty:
I'm Buster Brown,
I live in a shoe.
That's my dog Tye,
He lives there too.

And who could ever forget the obnoxious kid who repeatedly whined out:
"More Park Sausages Mom!!"?

BTW, the Serutan ad went: Serutan is Natures spelled backwards, not the way you have quoted it.

In NYC Piel's Beer had a cartoon pair called Harry and Bert Piel, but I don't remember any jingle. Maybe someone else...?

Castro Convertible Sofas also had a jingle in the 50's that escapes my memory.

Does anybody remember the last line to this Post Sugar Crisp cereal commercial:

Can't get enough of those Sugar Crisps
Sugar Crisps
Sugar Crisps
Can't get enough of those Sugar Crisps
????

--snip-

It was sung by the character Sugar Bear and I now recognize that structure as one that was often used for African American spirituals.

Since this thread seems to be about what jingles we remember, I'll confess that I cheated and tried to find the last line by googling the first line of the commercial.

I found this website http://www.retrojunk.com/details_commercial/890/. And I actually spent time d watching that 1979 commercial. But the last line was still not clear to me.

Now I can't get this jingle out of my mind. Maybe it'll go away if someone 'posts' its last line.

First I'll confess that I stopped perusing and merely skimmed this thread about the time the discussions about sidekicks began, so plaease forgive me for repeating.
Pancho and Cisco finished each radio show with a joke from Pancho.
e.g.
Pancho:Hey Cisco, why does a giraffe have such a long neck?
Cisco:I don't know Pancho, why does a giraffe have such a long neck?
Pancho:Because his head is so far from the ground>
Cisco:Oh Pancho.
Pancho:Oh Cisco. Have a stick of Wrigley Spearment Gum.

Another jingle that comes to mind is:

I like Bosco, it's so good for me...
I must admit that's all I can remember of the real jingle, but of course kids sang:

I hate Bosco, it's so bad for me.
Mama puts it in my milk to try and poison me.
But I fooled Mama. I put some in her tea.
Now I have no Mama to try and poison me.

I'm not even sure what Bosco was, but I remember that jingle.

How many can remember the Wildroot Cream Oil commercials where Evil Eye Fleagle would say,"Get Wildroot Cream oil Charlie," and the answer would be,"But that would be illegal. My name is Fred."

In the June 04 part of this thread there was some discussion of Chambers' Caskets by JennyO, Hrothgar, Jack Halyard and others. I suspect one of the reasons Australians of their vintage might be familiar with it is that Pageant included the song as part of their Death Bracket and it's on the cassette we released.

I was interested to see how many had crossed the equator; toothpastes of various sorts and Brylcreem are the only ones I recognise as having come south but I was fascinated to see that a Brit had become familiar with Australia's Dismal Guernsey advertising. Aeroplane Jelly features in the thread but, as a Victorian, it was unfamiliar to me until I started singing with Tony Suttor, a Sydneysider. He, on the other hand, was unfamiliar with the radio jingle of the '40s and early '50s advertising the Hoyts cinema chain; the ad and much of the chain died with the onset of TV in 1956.

To the tune of "The man who broke the bank of Monte Carlo"

Oh we can't show all the pictures
so we only show the best
the others show the rest
you can put it to the test.
So call your girlfriend right away
when she hears the news she'll shout hooray
you're happier in a Hoyts suburban theatre.

Now, if only I could remember all the words to

We're happy little Vegemites
we're happy as can be
we always like our Vegemite
for breakfast, lunch and tea.
We always love our Vegemite
We always have our Vegemite

As I recall there may have been some sort of bear mascot, and a jingle that went something like

Bosco drinks his Bosco
Bosco drinks his Bosco
Bosco loves his Bosco

I remember we had a 45rpm flexidisc of the song back in the 1960s. It featured the Enid Blyton kids' characters Noddy & Bigears (etc.) who at that time were used to advertise the cereal. The disc had a story on it, and the characters kept singing songs all saying how great Ricicles were.

It's quite clear that our American cousins have won this competition on both quantity and variety of product (Aeroplane Jelly I definitely need!). However I would submit that in our own understated British way we have some quality gems tucked away. The cigarette brand of immortal memory namely 'Anchor' had a suitably folksy jingle (to the tune of 'What shall we do with a drunken sailor") which led to rather predictable parodies over which it is best to draw a veil. It went like this - "A man at sea will often hanker for the flavour of an Anchor - so much satisfation".

By the way I believe that the revolutionary new carpet material that Cyril Lord was imploring us to buy was 'Enkalon'...presumably made from the wool of the Enk?

I think the end of the Rhinegold jingle actually went:

It's not bitter, not sweet,
it's a full-flavored treat,
Why not buy extra-dry Rhingold Beer?

Yoo Hoo, it's Yogi Berra's favorite drink! (especially since he owned the company, which we gullible kids didn't know back then.)

Man, all that talk about Freedom Land really jogged my memory of a million drives on the LIE. Do you remember the billboard that they put up while they were building Lefrack City?

"If you lived here, you'd be home by now!"

I think that must have been the original use of that slogan, which really hit home because that was the exact place where the miles-long bumper-to-bumper parking lot began.

And thanks to Rabbi Sol for all his great NYC jingles and his mention of the New York Giants (the Polo Grounds ones). They'll always be my team even if they did move to San Francisco 47 years ago. What I never could forgive however is that their departure turned the Polo Grounds (a virtual shrine) into a stock-car track and then another ugly high-rise project.

"Say Hey, Willie!!!"

So for all the New Yorkers out there I offer this political jingle which might just be the most obscure item on here since it undoubtedly goes back to the 1800's. My father used to sing it when we were little kids in the 40's and probably learned it from his father, who was born in 1865 and was involved in N.Y. politics. It's the Tammany anthem (from Tammany Hall, the New York Democratic Party Machine of the time), and goes like this:

"Hiawatha was an Indian,
So was Navajo.
Big Chief Organ Grinder killed them
many years ago.

Now there is a band of Indians
that will never die.
And when you here them singing
this will be their battle-cry.

Tam-ma-ny, Tam-ma-ny
Big Chief sits in his tee-pee
Cheering braves to vic-to-ry

Tam-ma-ny, Tam-ma-ny
Whomp-um, Stomp-um, Get your Wam-pum
Tam-ma-ny!"

There might have been more verses, but given that I haven't heard or sung it in about 57 years I think I did pretty well. If anybody else out there remembers this or other esoteric NY lore, I'd appreciate hearing about it. Maybe we should start a new thread?

Well, ain't Google wonderful! Having written the previous post I thought why not just google it and see what appears. So dammit, now I have to unsay all that about it going back to the 1800's cause it turns out it was a song published as sheet music in 1905 by Vincent Bryan and Gus Edwards with the title "Tammany, a pale face pow-wow".
Still fairly esoteric though.

Except for a couple of variations, my version from memory was pretty close in most of the particulars, but of course as a little kid I never learned the additional verses, or perhaps my father just never sang them.

All of this makes me feel both great at being able to recover cultural knowledge experienced as a child, and extremely old, because who else alive now could possibly sing such an old ditty from personal memory? Yecch!!

I also have been searching for this forever. I've found a couple of different recollections of it and combined with what I remember, I think thie is it.

The Spaniel by Edgar, Al & Moe.

Once upon a midnight cautious, while I pondered weak and nauseous,
Over some advertising copy I had wrote for Macy's store,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a yapping,
As of someone loudly yapping, yapping at my office door.
"'Tis some client there," I muttered, "Yapping at my office door.
Only this and nothing more."

The I felt my terror worsen, for my guest was not a person.
In there stepped a cocker spaniel. Naturally I jumped in fear.
Tried to climb an oaken panel, ripping there my new grey flannel,
But the spaniel merely stood there, speaking out in voice so clear,
Speaking out like Jack Lascoulie in a voice both loud and clear;
Quoth the Spaniel, "Drink Blatz Beer."

How I marveled this ungainly dog who did commercials plainly,
How he spoke the message clearly, selling points he underscored.
For I could not help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet could mouth a slogan without sounding slightly bored.
Most annnouncers being human can't help sounding slightly bored.
Quoth the spaniel, "Buy a Ford."

Thus this dog with voice like Murrow made my heavy brow unfurrow,
Thoughts of fortunes I could make now made me shake down to my knees.
But the spaniel set me grieving then by turning tail and leaving.
Naturally I begged him tarry, crying out, "Stay with me, please."
Chasing him along the hallway begging him, "Stay with me please."
Quoth the spaniel, "Eat Kraft Cheese."

Long live Mad Magazine.

GUEST,Jacqued - "Tasty, tasty, very very tasty" was used for Kelloggs
Bran Flakes back in the 1970s.

I notice it was recently revived (which seems unusual for a jingle), as I heard it on TV not long ago. Not 100% sure it was the same product though - anyone know?

Not sure if anyone else has said this above (no time to check in detail), but in the 1960s and 70s advertisers used to commission proper jingles as we've found examples of above. These days they mostly just seem to use an existing pop song (sometimes pretty obscure, sometimes not) and use that instead.

I sometimes find myself listening to the pop song (which may be something obscure from the 1960s that I remember) and totally missing what the ad is for. I wonder how many others get distracted from the advertiser's message in this way, and whether it's counterproductive?

Is the day of the advertising jingle dead then? Discuss.

And though it wasn't a song, there's also the memorable commercial line "Sorry Charlie, only the best tuna get to be Chicken Of The Sea" {or something like that}.

I sometimes get that line mixed up with "Silly Rabbit. Trix are for kids" cereal commercial.

Well, there seem to be very few 'proper' jingles on TV ads these days, compared to the heyday of the 1950s-70s (I can't remember further back than that so maybe even that wasn't the heyday).

These days, you're lucky if they even bother to write a parody lyric, which at least can be amusing. More often than not, they just find a piece of existing music and use that. I guess it's easier and cheaper to do that. But as I said above, is it as effective from an advertising point of view? Of course it often has spinoff benefits for the person who made the original record, resulting in a new generation discovering a song and putting it back in the charts.

Meanwhile here's a few more (apologies if these are included above and I missed 'em):

"Light up a Richmond and strike it rich, richest flavour yet in a tipped cigarette. light up a Richmond and strike it rich, strike it rich with Richmond"

And here are (from memory) the words of the Juicy Fruit Gum ad:

"Juicy Fruit adds to your fun
It's a hit with everyone
Fine fruit flavour, what a treat
Makes your mouth feel fresh and sweet
Juciy Fruit adds to your fun
Juicy Fruit chewing gum"

ISTR they used a very similar jingle in the US for Doublemint gum, something like:

"Doublemint adds to your fun
Doubles fun for everyone
You will love it, millions do
Stick it in yer gob and chew"

I made that last line up as I can't remember the real version!

Anyone remember how it really went?

Finally, anyone remember the Fry's chocolate campaign "Big Fry" (said in a deep voice with lots of reverb). Wasn't there a jingle to go with that? I think it was something like "Big Fry is comin' to town..." - anyone remember?

(Ye gods, I worry about myself sometimes - I can remember this sort of crap, but not important stuff!)

Back in the 1950's, there was an ad campaign for a product called "Sunny Boy". I think it was some sort of sweet drink. The jingle started out

Sunny Boy, Sunny Boy
two for a nickel
Sunny Boy

and later in the jingle there was a part that went

giddy-up, giddy-up, giddy-up
buuuuuuuuuuy....Bordens today!

I assume that "Sunny Boy" (or maybe it was "Sonny Boy" - can't remember at this point) was a Bordens product.

Anyway, it wasn't until decades later that I discovered that this jingle was based on an old song called "Pony Boy" (or possibly "Tony Boy".) My father-in-law would sing it to my baby daughter as he bounced her on his foot (as he sat with legs crossed, the baby on the foot of the leg on top), holding her hands. His version went

Pony Boy, Pony Boy
won't you be my Pony Boy?
Marry me, carry me, straight across the sea.
Don't say no, here we go,
giddy-up, giddy-up, giddy-up, giddy-up, WHOA! (whoops!)
My Pony Boy.

On the "WHOA", he would lean my daughter backwards, much to her delight.

Google turns up slightly different lyrics to the song, but I'll stick to this version!

The Grasshopper's Dance by Ernest Bucalossi.(1900/1905)

   That's the name of the novelty tune used recently on Brit.tv for the dancing milk bottles ad. Used to be on the radio in the 40s/50s.

   I went into a charity shop here in Norwich today,and found the tune on a 78 !! (Thank you,up there.)




   The jingle I pointlessly remember is for Danish Blue cheese. Two phrases on two lines waved about like a pair of scissors and I used to copy the waving with my arms at the time (late50s/early 60s).

   nobody was interested then either.

   Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp !!

See Sam's in Philipsburg,

Pay by cash or pay on time,
Either way Sam treats you fine.

Tommy Makem & Clancy Bros. Lyrics, Bringin' home the oil, me boys,

Trivia

Gulf Oil sponsored US television coverage (NBC 'Special Reports') of the NASA space launches and missions in the 1960s. One commercial sponsoring this coverage, one of the first commercial music videos of its day, featured an Irish band singing a rousing maritime song with this chorus (note: 'oil' pronounced 'isle', 'boys' pronounced 'byes'):

    (Hey!) Bringin' home the oil, me boys, bringin' home the oil!
    Sailing all around the world, bringin' home the oil!
    A workin' on a giant ship, it's very hard we toil,
    A sailin' into Bantry Bay, bringin' home the oil!

With the final verse:

    We're buildin' other tankers now to speed more oil to you
    The Universe Kuwait, me lads, -Japan and Portugal too
    And now the Universe Ireland, I'm very proud to say
    Is among the giant ships a-bringin' oil to Bantry Bay

I was thinking recently about a jingle that I heard in the early Seventies in Ithaca New York. It was a radio ad for a wine called Allegria (sp?) It went something like this:

It's one-oh-three
in Tennessee
L. A. is really feelin' the heat!
It's one-oh-four
in Baltimore
and they're fryin' eggs in the street!
You turn on the T. V. station
and the weather man says
"Guess what!"
It's only 99
near the county line
but it looks like it's gonna get hot!
So you pour yourself
some Allegria
the wine you drink
over the rocks
and sit by the pool
feelin' mighty cool
from your head down to your socks.

This jingle took the campus community at Cornell by storm (the product itself may also have been popular, I wouldn't know.) But then, someone pointed out that the product was imported from Portugal, which at the time had colonies in Angola and Mozambique. Campus opinion almost immediately turned against it. There was a follow up radio ad campaign, but it died away quickly and the product was never heard of again.

(don't remember the rest, although the tune's still with me; may have been a girl on a tree swing in the TV commercial; anyone?)

It ended with: The one and the only Fig Newton is a very remarkable, very remarkable, very reMARKable thing!"

Others have mentioned a couple of sixties-era Chef Boyardee commercials (e.g. the "French school kids" one for Spaghetti and Meatballs: "Come when the bell calls (tolls?), spaghetti and meatballs"; and, another for Ravioli: "Ravioli, we like ravioli..."). There was a third one in that series, I believe for Beefaroni, featuring "British" school children. I don't know the name of the "English sounding" tune was or all the words, but there was something about "oodles and oodles of big (tasty?) noodles, and beef, tomato and cheese" -- or something like that.

But the one I wish had *never* aired was for Del Monte canned juices. I was in fourth grade when this one was popular and my last name was "Belmonte" back then, so you can imagine the rest:

Del Monte fruit juice drinks, so fresh, so light.
Del Monte fruit juice drinks -- good morning, noon or night!

Fill in the gaps where you can. Hope I helped folks remember some more jingles/ads.

Gee whiz. I was even on topic in this "off" topic discussion. I'm amazed (and I think I'm talkin' to myself - ack!).

"It's Shake & Bake!"
"And I helped!"
(mother and daughter to hubby/dad)

I don't know if I missed this along the way, but, to this day, my mother cannot hear "Blue Danube Waltz" without singing:
"Get Rival Dog Food! (dog barking quite musically) Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf!" (Try it!)

By the way, Festus on "Gunsmoke" was played by Ken Curtis (who used to sing with The Sons of the Pioneers and also was a writer/director). I tried reading all of the responses and might have missed someone answering it already.

As for "Jingle Bells", was it "Floating heads! Floating heads!" that you remembered, with Santa, seated on the electric shaver's much-vaunted "floating heads" for a smoother shave, snowboarding over the hills? That seemed to be trotted out every Christmas for a number of years in the Sixties.

"From the land of sky blue waters..." (with "Indian" chants and tom-toms sounding throughout the jingle~though I don't recall the rest of the lyrics~something like "Hamm's! The King of Beers!". I think that was Hamm's being hawked by a cartoon bear and all of his animated woodsy buddies.

"I'd walk a mile for a Camel." (After smoking a number of years, the customer wouldn't be able to walk a mile, but people didn't seem to think about that then.)

"It's not nice to fool Mother Nature!" It was for some butter substitute, but I don't recall which. Mother Nature was played by Dena Dietrich.

How about the little argumentative tub of Parkay~first "Butter!" then "Parfaaay!"

"I can't believe I ate the whole thing!" There were so many Alka Seltzer commercials, all of them very clever. They also had "Mama mia! That's-a specy spicy..." after the man in the commercial within a commercial had to keep eating during endless takes. What about the new husband whose wife is doing some experimental cooking? I think it was something like "I've never seen a meatball that size," from the ill-looking hubby. I can't remember the recipe she happily proclaims at the end of the commercial, perhaps sweet and sour something.

I don't remember much of this one except for "Hi, guy!" (delivered by big, genial Chuck McCann) and "Mona!", an end line that was an ad lib by an actor whose name slips my mind for now. Oh! It was Bill Fiore! Remember the commercial with the shared medicine cabinet, in which the slight, darkhaired man opened the cabinet door to come face-to-face with the guy in the next apartment? It was very cute and funny, and I think they did at least three of them. For the life of me, I can't remember WHAT they were advertising. Maybe it was a deodorant.

Speaking of Lark set to "The William Tell Overture": That set off a hilarious set of commercials that led to Clayton Moore in Lone Ranger regalia confronting the Lark guy about using HIS theme! Teehee! Later, Totino's Pizza Rolls (I believe it was) joined in the fray; their ad featured a takeoff of the Lark spokesman, talking people into trying a pizza roll, then the Lone Ranger AND Tonto (Jay Silverheels) entered the scene! I LOVED these ads! Talk about crossing universes! I just might have those on a VHS of classic ads.

Does anyone remember the amazing musical number that Great American Soups did with actress/singer/dancer Ann Miller as the housewife who launches into a song-and-dance number to tell her husband about all of the GAS (*giggle*) flavors? The kitchen set split in two and slid aside to reveal a stage worthy of an MGM musical. I don't recall the lyrics except for one line: "Let's face the Chicken Gumbo and dance!", at which point she goes into a wild tap dance routine. When she ends up in her husband's arms in the classic dip position, he wearily asks, "Emily, do you have to make such a big production of everything?" Mom and I still use that line when something seems overboard, too elaborate. By the way, it WAS excellent soup! My favorites were cream of mushroom and chicken noodle, and I probably WAS influenced by the ad.

I have memories of a dog food commercial in which you saw only the large dog's long legs, the food dish and a gaggle of ducklings that scurried around eating kibble from the dish and where it was spilled on the floor. In a voiceover, duck dialogue was supplied, something like: "I don't see a dog." "Do you see a dog?" "I don't see a dog!" etc. Most people look at me as if I've gone mad when I talk about this commercial. Anyone else remember it? If my mom didn't, I probably WOULD think it's my imagination.

In another dog food ad, the wife keeps telling the husband about the "lion food" they need to but. The husband says, "But Bijou isn't a lion!" Then, they show a tiny scruffy dog, and the wife says, "HE thinks he is!"~at which point, the dog emits a lion's roar.

The same company did a reverse ad, in which the husband says, "But Bijou isn't a dog!" Cut to very large lion lounging on couch (if I recall). "HE thinks he is!" She delivers that line in that babying tone some of us use with our pets. Again, I haven't a clue what brand this was for.

I remember jingleless ads: "The Teaberry Shuffle" and "No Matter What Shape Your Stomach's In" (Alka Seltzer). The latter instrumental was actually "Music to Watch Girls By"~I think; isn't it by the Bob Crewe Generation? Was the shuffle tune an original because my mind keeps bringing up a Herb Alpert tune ("The Spanish Flea?").

Oh! Remember the Alka Seltzer ad in which the guy sat in one chair with his cartoon stomach in another, arguing over what should not be eaten. "You eat pepperoni pizza, you're gonna get heartburn!" the stomach warns him. Or, was that for Rolaids? Commercials can become entertainment but leave you at a loss what they're advertising.

Wasn't there an ad for prunes: "Today the flavor! Tomorrow the wrinkles!"? They did several of these. In one, Ray Bradbury made a guest appearance, denying that he predicted that people in the future eat prunes!

"Where's the beef?!" was delivered by Clara Peller (Or, is that Pellar? I really should have checked.) But, which burger-seller was it for? Again, remember the commercial but forget the brand seems to be the norm--at least for me.

"In the valley of the Jolly~Ho! Ho! Ho~~Green Giant!" That even inspired a rock 'n' roll song!

I really have to stop this and do something else! But, this certainly is a brainshaker!

Okay, this is half-remembered, but does anyone else remember fully the original "Meow Mix" lyrics?

Something along the lines of (sung melodiously by a live action cat):

"I love chicken, I love tuna! I love liver,
Please deliver Meow mix to (something, something)..."
Into a fast patter song.

And it ends on an enunciated "me-ow!"

Then, the announcer: "Meow Mix. So good, cats ask for it by name."

Later, it was discovered that too much tuna is bad for cats, and they changed the recipe, so they did away with the lyrics, and now, it's a can just singing "m'yow, m'yow, m'yow, m'yow!" to the same tune.

MystMoontruck, you are not insane. I remember the Rival Dog Food (arf arf! arf arf!)commercial. And "Today the pits, tomorrow the wrinkles" ad for pitted prunes. I believe Stan Freberg did 'em on the radio. And boy, do you know your obscure actors!!!

Pits! That's it! Shows you my totally wonky memory, with it's on-and-off retrieval. Stan Freberg did the voiceover on the TV commercials, too. Actually, I think that he designed that campaign for them. One ad had a rather stuffy-looking gentleman being talked into trying a prune. While he approved the absence of a pit, he did note, "They're still rather badly wrinkled." Then, that grand voice would announce, "Today the pits, tomorrow the wrinkles!"

"Purina Cat Chow~Chow Chow Chow!" Remember the lady chachaing with her cat?

Great! It's not just Mom and me who remember that Rival ad! It's weird how some campaigns imbed themselves so thoroughly in our minds that they pop out at odd times.

Now, if I could find someone who remembers the ducklings eating the dog food, I'd reach a further state of bliss. *giggle*

I remember Oscar Meyer's ad with the contrary little boy:
"Oh, I'm glad I'm not an Oscar Meyer Weiner. That is what I'd never want to be. For if I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner..." I don't remember the exact wording, only that he runs into a disapproving group of children then joins them in singing the usual jingle. It was an animated commercial I think.

"Hot Dogs, Armour Hot Dogs
What kind of kids love Armour Hot Dogs?
Big kids, little kids, kids who climb on rocks.
Fat kids, skinny kids, even kids with chicken pox love hot dogs,
Armour Hot Dogs. The dogs kids love to bite!"

Wow! What nook or cranny of my brain did that emerge from?

Actress/model Barbara Carrera had her screen (OK~TV screen) debut as the personification of Chiquita Banana. I admit that I found these lyrics, which seem to differ in places from what I remember:
"I'm Chiquita Banana and I've come to say
Bananas have to ripen in a certain way.
When they are fleck'd with brown and have a golden hue,
Bananas taste the best and are the best for you.
You can put them in a salad, You can put them in a pie aye
Anyway you want to eat them, It's impossible to beat them.
But bananas like the climate of the very, very tropical equator.
So you should never put bananas in the refrigerator. No no no no!"

I think most of the informative lyrics were lost on young ones as we went from a cartoon banana to Ms. Carrera. The Chiquita site I checked did admit that there have been lots of rewrites since the Forties.

I felt bad about repeating information that I hadn't noticed above, then I noted that a number of us have done that. Considering our history of being deluged by advertisements, it's not that surprising that we're compiling so much and sometimes repeating some, as I did with Chiquita Banana and a couple of others. I see that someone previously quoted the anti-Oscar Meyer boy completely, recalling the complete stanza. Yea! It was fun to read.

I didn't see if the musical percolator product was identified. My mom and I think it's a Folger's ad. Or, was it Maxwell House? See? We might remember the ads, but often the product is forgotten. They should remember to include the product's name IN the jingle, true?

Someone wrote this:
A candy bar jingle... "Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't."
That was Almond Joy and Mounds. "Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't. Almond Joy's got nuts. Mounds don't. 'Cause sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't!"

Also, some cigarette advertised with the jingle "A silly millimeter longer..." I think that also led to the "cigarette break" in which the longer cigarette helped stave off a firing squad, got caught in an elevator door, and many other odd situations~or so I recall. In one ad, they featured the leaning horse from "Cat Ballou", the one Lee Marvin credited part of his Best Actor Oscar to: "I think half of this belongs to a horse somewhere out in the Valley." I seem to remember that this as showed a gypsyish-appareled man taking the product's vaunted extra-long break before repairing the caravan, and the horse was leaning against the wagon, apparently napping while awaiting repairs.

I found this example while searching the Internet for something else. Some folks from the UK might remember this ad:

"There's an ice cream van that has been coming around here on nights of resonable weather and the tune it plays is 'O Solo Mio' which a lot of Brits of a certain age will associate with a long running advert for walls ice cream Cornetto's and hence that is what I end up singing as the van comes around (Just one cornettoooo, give it to meeeeee, delicious ice cream from Italyyyyyy).I found an energetic version of this on the same tape as the Steve Reich and Prefab Sprout Interviews though I've only placed an extract here as the full tune is the only tune available on iTunes (link here iTunes required) from Pookiesnackenburger who I believe were from Brighton and who had founding members who went on to form Stomp.

All together now…

Hi again. I posted the jingle from the pampers commercial. After posting it here I did some research on google and was shocked to see that the "Jenny Rebecca" lyrics are actually a Barbra Streisand song from 1965! All these years I had no idea I named my daughter after one of her songs!!
Anyone remember..."I WANT MY MAYPO!"? It's maple flavored oatmeal or some kind of soft cereal. Maybe cream of wheat. I made my mother buy it for me back in the 50's because of that commercial. And I hated it!! It was a cartoon commmercial with a little kid with a cowboy hat on or some kind of big hat. And he's sitting at an empty bowl with a spoon in his fist, whining for his Maypo!

In the 1950s and early 60s, before credit cards were common, there were finance companies providing loans of up to a few hundred dollars. They advertised fiercely on the radio, at least in New York, e.g.:

When you're young
You have money to burn;
Later on
You owe more than you earn.
Relax and take heart,
Get a fresh start,
With cash from Seabord.

Never borrow money needlessly
But when you must,
Borrow from the oldest company

Perhaps someone will remember the rest.

Mortein (purveyors of flyspray) used to have a tag line "When you're on a good thing, stick to it!" and they also did a musical skit on Looie the Fly but I can't bring it to mind.

Tarzan's Grip was a popular adhesive sold in squeeze tubes (like toothpaste) and the ads had a tag line "Get a tube of Tarzan's Grip, the stuff that sticks!" which us smutty-minded schoolkids modified to "Get a grip of Tarzan's tube, the stick that stuffs!"

When I ran out of toys I had I stick I would drop off the back of my wagon like my bumper fell off. The commercial had a guy in a beat up car driving down the road littering like crazy. At the end of the commercial he stopped on a hill overlooking Nashville Tn. and his bumper fell off while he kept littering. The song playing was

The jingle that blighted my tender youth was the Bonnie Dog Food commercial, an inane little earworm of a ditty which started out:

Better buy Bonnie for your bow-wow [arf, arf]

I cannot believe I've forgotten the rest of it! After having that sung at me throughout school, I thought it would be etched on the brain cells forever. Anybody remember the other lines?

(And: Was the Bonnie Dog Food they sold in California made of kangaroo meat like its Oz cousins?)

It's difficult to say - we just saw what we saw! However, in retrospect, I'd say "We're going well, we're going Shell, we're going well with Shell, Shell, Shell," with Bing Crosby singing it, was probably shown on both sides of the pond. The more international the product, the more chance of it being shown globally.

There's one jingle that's been bouncing around my head for weeks now - at least the ending has, but for the life of me I cannot remember the beginning (the bit with the product name!), so when I came across this thread I jumped for joy. "Aha," said I, "It's sure to be in here!" I ploughed through the whole thread. No luck!!

The jingle is from the UK, late 50's or early 60's, and the ending (to "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star")is: "...Luscious, dreamy simply heaven, twelve for ony one-and-seven."

Someone, please help!!!

Bit-o-Honey goes a long, long, long way.

This jingle appeared at the end of an animated Bit-o-Honey commercial - it featured a many-headed monster of some sort, who was placated by being given a Bit-o-Honey bar. Bit-o-Honey bars, as I recall, were scored in a way that allowed one to break off several bite-sized pieces.

Bit o Honey.

drool

I was in the south eastern US last summer. Looked and looked everywhere for bit o honey, either bars to bite size pieces for 2 weeks and go no joy.

Accidently found the bars in a little petrol station/store somewhere between Augusta Georgia and Raliegh Durham NC on the last day but one of the holiday. Wish I could remember where. The bars are still cut into rectangles and one sheet of waxed paper folded around each piece to keep them from sticking together.

Anyway I picked up a load of them and brought back to UK. Sadly all gone now.

However, my sister in law in Orlando, says the bite sized pieces in bags can be purchased from the Vermont Country Store online.

I got a kick out of this Frankenthread & to paraphrase an AlkaSeltzer commercial: I can't believe I read the WHOLLLLLE thing.

I was surprised not to see one of my favorites from the 60's for Nestles. My Godfather worked for Nestles then, and he sent lots of things including a stuffed version of the puppet used in the commercials, a dog named Farfel. Though Nestles made choclate bars of various kinds, I think the product being advertised was Nestles Quick, a chocolate powder that you'd stir into milk. The dog puppet Farfel sang:

"N -   E - S - T - L - E - S. Nestles makes the very best!
Choooooc
(mouth wide open) LET!" ( Mouth drops shut with a wooden clacking sound)

I find it gratifying to see evidence of my assumption that MOST places had phone numbers that had been used as the text to advertising jingles. You can identify folks from Northern Ohio by their ability to sing GArfield 1-2323. This was brought home to me in Chicago years ago, at a benefit, when all the locals sang back THEIR local phone number jingle to the performers.

I also remember being more charmed by the MAYPO commercials than the cereal. We studied them in art school animation class - they were classics produced by some folks who made animated movies for the Film Board of Canada. They'd record their actual children, then animate fantasies, using the recordings as a sound track. The commercial captured some of that magic.

Kibbles And Bits was a catchy jingle I remember. I miss jingles.

I agree on the "commercial songs vs "work-for-hire" writers jingles"
bit.
They seem to be using more pop songs for commercials now, than hiring more jingle writers. What a nice way for someone to go to the unemployment line. It's all about the almighty dollar. Use a pop song hoping it would get more customers, thus making huge profits. Personally, I would rather jingles from a "work-for-hire" writer. I'd
be more likely to buy the product.

I don't know, I think getting the permission to do that probably costs them more money. There's probably more behind it - like that a lot of people found jingles too memorable and were irritated by them and therefore didn't buy the product or something. Like the Hillshire Farms commercials have a Go Meat jingle-thing, and I run to turn off the TV if it comes on.

Here's one that bubbled to the surface of my mind recently:

Get Top Value Stamps where you shop!
Get Top Value Stamps where you buy!
Get top value gifts for the stamps that you save,
get Top Value Stamps (they're just like gold!)
and save, save, save!

and after the jingle concluded, a voice with a broad, fake Scottish accent would say "They'rrrrrrre Thrrrifty!'

Top Value Stamps were trading stamps that you would get when you shopped at certain stores. When you had saved enough stamps, you could redeem them for merchandise. I still have a hatchet that I got with the stamps, back in the sixties.

This was in Washington D.C. The other brand of trading stamp that we had was S&H Green Stamps, but we were a "Top Value family".

Given what we now know about sunburns and skin cancer, it makes me wonder, what, if anything, those early "suntan lotions" actually did. If it's true that Coppertone allowed you to "get the fastest tan that anyone can," then I infer that it didn't screen out ANY ultraviolet rays. So what did it do? And how did it help you prevent a sunburn? Or did it?

One of my contemporaries used to march down Swanley Village High Street bellowing out "I drinks Idris when I's dry." I don't know if it qualifies as a jingle though.

It was: Not bitter, not sweet/ it's a dry flavored treat/ won't you try/extra dry Rheingold beer

and Colgate dental cream/ what a toothpaste/ it cleans your breath/ while it cleans your teeth.

And then LSMFT Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco

and a cigarette add with an auctioneer, ending "Sold American!"

Does anyone remember this jingle for Franco American Spaghetti? All that stuck with me was this part:

Plump Tomatoes, Cheddar Cheese
A lively sauce that's bound to please

Pretty sure the last line was:

"Franco American Spaghetti!"

Somebody posted the words to the old Shredded Ralston jingle, and I've just about driven myself insane trying to find an original recording (and haven't). Does anybody know of somewhere I could find it? I have reason to believe, from my research that it was performed by the Ranch Boys Trio (compromised of Joe "Curley" Bradley, Jack Ross and Ken "Shorty" Carson). As a side note, Curley played "Pecos" in the Tom Mix radio programs. Shorty was later a member of the Sons of the Pioneers, then the Garry Moore show (which is also terrible hard to find footage of)-- and who knows whatever happened to Jack. ;) I know he did some records of his own, but I haven't researched his career. The Ranch Boys Trio were also featured earlier in the "Pinto Pete and his Ranch Hands" radio show (which can be found at archive.org).......

*laugh* pardon my rambling. The point is, I'm looking for a recording of the Shredded Ralston jingle.

Browsed the thread, and it's too long to check, but...

LSMFT: Lucky Strike means "Fine Tobacco"

"You meet the nicest people on a Honda."

This one I think was regional...

"I've got a beer mug Yay!
But it's empty. Booh!
I'm gonna fill it up. Yay!
But only half way. Booh!
Cause it makes such a big, creamy head. Yay!
But soon the mug will be empty. Booh!
But I've got seven bottles more of Cott's draft style root beer! Yaaaay!"

I remember it as "You meet the nicest people on a Honda bike".

Also for motorbikes, there was "Discover the swinging world of Yamaha".

I certainly remember LSMFT.

Posted what is below back in 2005 and 2007. Never saw a reply that filled in the blank lyrics for most of what I posted, so I figured six years later somebody might jump in (although it appears that the thread sorta died a year ago). Anyhow, here it all is again...

I posted the following (see below) in November and December 2005. Then no one posted in the "Jingles you remember" thread again until... February 2007? Is that possible? I'm stilling humming these jingles and interested to hear if anyone remembers the rest of the words, or for that matter, even remembers the jingles period. I really hope that I don't somehow kill the thread again! I'm friendly -honest. :-)

I don't think these have been mentioned:

For Nabisco Premium Saltine Crackers (circa 1964):

Premium Saltine reclosable pack,
You open 'em up and you close 'em back.
They stay crisp until
You get to the very last cracker.
Premium Saltine!

Fig Newton (same era):

The one and the only Fig Newton is a very remarkable thing...
(don't remember the rest, although the tune's still with me; may have been a girl on a tree swing in the TV commercial; anyone?)

It ended with: The one and the only Fig Newton is a very remarkable, very remarkable, very reMARKable thing!"

Others have mentioned a couple of sixties-era Chef Boyardee commercials (e.g. the "French school kids" one for Spaghetti and Meatballs: "Come when the bell calls, spaghetti and meatballs"; and, another for Ravioli: "Ravioli, we like ravioli..."). There was a third one in that series, I believe for Beefaroni, featuring "British" school children. I don't know the name of the "English sounding" tune was or all the words, but there was something about "oodles and oodles of big (tasty?) noodles, and beef, tomato and cheese" -- or something like that.

But the one I wish had *never* aired was for Del Monte canned juices. I was in fourth grade when this one was popular and my last name was "Belmonte" back then, so you can imagine the rest:

Del Monte fruit juice drinks, so fresh, so light.
Del Monte fruit juice drinks -- good morning, noon or night!

Fill in the gaps where you can. Hope I helped folks remember some more jingles/ads.

WOW! Ten years of posting to various web forums and internet newsgroups and I've *never* totally killed a thread anywhere! Until now, it seems. :-) (UPDATE: Twice. In 2005 and 2007.)

It's been a month and a half since I tossed in these jingle fragments and not one person has anything to add?!?

Gee whiz. I was even on topic in this "off" topic discussion. I'm amazed (and I think I'm talkin' to myself - ack!).

I guess I'll just slink back into the darkness, humming a 40 year old TV jingle about canned pasta 'cuz I can't remember the WORDS!!!

How's this for a dip into prehistoric times?

I remember in the late 1930s when I was a rug rat, a radio commercial for a laundry soap. Rinse-O. It was a little girl's voice singing
"Rinse-O white! Rinse-O white!
"Happy little wash day song!"
The singer was a nine-year-old girl who went by the named "Bubbles" Silverman.

Some years later, she emerged again, as one of this country's foremost opera singers. But she had undergone a bit of a name change.

Now she was known as "Beverly Sills."

My favorite Ballantine song/lyric (c. 1965):

Why is Ballantine beer like a rocket flight,
Why is Ballantine beer like an opening night?

Why is Ballantine beer like a marching band,
a race that finishes neck and neck (background whinny)...or a ride on a toboggan sli-i-ide?

Why is Ballantine beer like a bugle call (background: a piece of reveille),
Why is Ballantine beer like a firemen's ball?

...and why is Ballantine beer like a kite in a windy sky?
There's more spirit to it, that's why!
(tag..."if you want to start living a life that's livelier, live it with spirit!")

Have we had "Washing machines go better with Calgon"?

A recent one, but peculiarly antique in tone ~~ real throwback to the earliest [mid-1950s in UK tv ads]. Have been wondering if this is an attempt to cash in on some sort of nostalgia market, or a bit of advertisers' or agents' ineptitude. Ambivalent about it.

One of the best, I recall from those very early days, was the briefest, 10 second 3-worder "Sleep sweeter. Bournvita", with a steaming mug wearing a nightcap.

The one that irritates me at the moment [a slogan rather than a jingle] is the bookmaker's one that enjoins in hearty hectoring tones "Don't settle for less!" Less what, exactly?

There's a wonderful moment to share
It's the bright one,it's the right one,
That's Martini!

Made in Scotland from girders, unpronounceable toooo
Made in Scotland from girders, that's why it's called Irn Bru!
TV ad featured a bonnie lassie dashing along the station platform off the train to meet her laddie(I think) and knocking everyone else flying. One of my faves!

Feeling - Down Under? (Picture turns itself upside down)
That's the time when every true blue Aussie turns to Dexsal.
On Brit tv mid 60s, an Aus reply to Alka Seltzer?

Was this the mystery creature nicking milk off the doorsteps?

Bring out the Branston! (bit like a football chant)

And Nice Cup Of Tea is an actual song, used t hear it on the Silent Radio back in the 50s..
