I doubt too many people here can ACTUALLY remember those 60's jingles. Anyone who can remember a 60's jingle would have to be at least in their 60's, no pun intended....

I remember the first jingle, about meatballs. It was Alka Seltzer or Pepto Bismol, I think.

I also remember the Aqua Velva song.

Not sure about the other ones on the list.

I can remember some TV stuff as far back as 1966-1967, when I was 4 or 5 years old. Mostly cartoons and kids' shows, but a few commercials too!

Hey, I'm old!

I wish we had some of those commercials. Now a days all I see is heath related ads. How many ads are there for problems with the bladder? I can't remember the last time I saw an ad for coffee, childrens' games, cereal, or candy. I do see everyonce a while an ad for toothpaste with Brooke Shields but the type of commercials seen today are a lot different. When I see an old show from the 1960' or even 1970's it would be fun to see the original commercial that ran with the show.

I think it's up to the TV station to play the commercials that they do and they only play current commercials. It would be hard for today's tv stations to play the original tv commercials that ran in the 60s and 70s.

Occasionally some of the original commercials are included as extras on DVD releases.

The types of commercials we see is really a function of the programs we watch. Advertisers try to aim their commercials toward the audience that they think will be watching a particular program (at a particular time).

Children's games, for example, might be advertised on some crappy Saturday morning cartoon. When we used to see commercials for games like "Trouble" (Pop-o-Matic pops the dice, pop the "6" and you move twice, Race your men around the track and try to send the others back") or 'Battleship" ("You sunk my battleship"), it was because we were watching kids shows that ran those particular ads.

I have seen coffee commercials for Folgers... "the best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup"... it has some young lady in it who staggers out of bed every morning, and once she has a cup of Folgers, then PRESTO! Next thing you know she's part of a "Riverdance" routine (probably with other consumers of Folgers). I sometimes drink Folgers, but I can't do no Riverdance.

Yes, I vividly remember

1) "That's a spicy meat-a-ball" (this video is labeled as a "blooper" but it was an actual commercial that ran just as we see it here).
2) Lllllllectric Shave!
3) There's something about an Aqua VELva maaaaan. (this is not the commercial I remember, but it goes back a ways, obviously)
4) Ajax being "stronger than dirt" (with the Knight) #1 #2

Some of the others didn't make the same impression.
