Once again it’s no-theme day again here at Cartoon Research. We have some tasty spots that we’ve been meaning to post one day but never got around to using. Please enjoy this carefully created compendium of the commercial cartoonist’s craft…
Kaiser – Frisbee
From Playhouse Pictures comes this spot aimed at the busy business owner. Animated by Gerard Baldwin and Herman Cohen. 1956.
Kaiser – Foil Grabber
With the voices of Stan Freberg and June Foray. Animated by Bill Littlejohn. Produced by Playhouse Pictures in 1960. The saga of Clark Smathers continues…
Soaky – Mummy and Creature
Another one from Playhouse Pictures, this one from 1964. Directed by Gerry Chiniquy and animated by Chiniquy and Jim Hiltz. Paul Frees and Richard Beals provide the voices. Colgate-Palmolive’s marvelous new way to clean your dirty mummies.
Couldn’t resist posting this image of the actual Soaky toys…
The very wonderful Buster Keaton stars in this creamy milk chocolate flavored spot. The animation of the cow was done at Fred Crippen’s Pantomime Pictures. (There were a few other all-animated Milky Way spots featuring the same cow produced by, you guessed it, Playhouse Pictures.)
Produced and directed by John Hubley at Storyboard Productions. Animated by C. L. Hartman with an interruption by Arthur Babbitt.
Another one from Hubley, circa 1967. animated by Phil Duncan and Gerard Baldwin. Boy, did I love those chocolate elephants!
