Aaaaaaaaaaaah, The Good Ol’ Days…

…when commercials were cool and catchy enough to make you remember them forever. Who among us over a certain age doesn’t recall this one?

If that commercial came out today, the owl would be openly gay. It’s a shame they kept him in the closet back then, even though his, um, “inclination,” is apparent (check out the way he licks that candy).

This one was also a personal favorite:

“Gimme some, Sugar”? Is it me or is that commercial suggestive as f*ck? Somehow I don’t think the “rewardHoney Bear wanted to give him was exactly found in a bowl of cereal. Post can deny it all they want…

Sugar Bear was a pimp. He’d be a rap mogul today. (Honey Bear could easily pass for Beyonce’ with that blonde weave.)

Of course, this one’s a classic:

That “plop! plop!” business was always a bit iffy to me. Like maybe Alka-Seltzer should have been a laxative, not just for upset stomach. But then again, that’s just me.

This last one seemed so hip and advanced when it first appeared.

Boy, technology has come a really long way!!!

  3. >I DID love that cool azz Sugar Bear! His voice (according to Wikipedia): Gerry Matthews provided the original voice for Sugar Bear which feature qualities similar to Dean Martin's. He portrayed a shallow eyed, easy going character.
