When Jerry and I put together these commercial posts, there’s always some stuff that ends up getting left out for one reason or another. This week we swept up a few of the leftovers, cleaned them off, and assembled them here for your viewing pleasure.
Animated by Ed Love, we didn’t discover this oddball spot until the day after we did the post about Ed Love. Lichtenstein irony meets the Marvel Superhero show with a little sexism and sixties suburban values thrown in. It’s unusual to see a typical square-jawed hero done in Ed’s flexible animation style.
We weren’t able to transfer this one in time to put it into our Groucho Marx/ Desoto Post, but here it is now. Made in 1955 by Playhouse Pictures.
Another Paul Fennell production animated by Carlo Vinci. We cut this one out of the reel when we were doing the candy post, but weren’t sure what to do with it. Now we know.
We found this spot after we had already done the candy post. From Pintoff Productions with vocals by Allen Swift.
This early Quik Bunny spot was left out the Bill Littlejohn post. Bill did so many commercials that we could spotlight his work from now until the sun goes dim without repeating anything.
Navy- College Musicians
Produced by Playhouse Pictures in 1957. Directed and animated by Bobe Cannon. We almost included this in the Bobe Cannon post, and then again in the public service post. The ubiquitous Paul Frees can be heard here.
A leftover from the MGM post. Animated by the Grant Simmons half of the GrantRay studio. A cute little Gene Hazelton-type girl talks about how Reynolds foil keeps your cigarettes fresh and wonderful. Of course you realize that Reynolds was also a major producer of cigarettes.
