1. 1960 Corvair TV Commercial

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic 1960 Chevy Corvair Infommercial - that seems to directly address Ralph Nader's objections in his book, Unsafe at Any Speed. If you do not know the history - the Chevy Corvair was a super cool car.... that got crushed because of concerns raised in Nader's book. For its day - the car was really no less safe than the rest of the lot, especially after the modifications to reduce rollovers. None of this mattered - the car was doomed commercially. Too bad - it was a really cool car.

2. Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet - Kris Play Cupid

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Classic TV channel proudly presents another terrific episode from the Nelson Family called Kris play Cupid.

The eyes give it away. She is also the mom of Matthew and Gunnar Nelson from the band - Nelson, which had a #1 hit called (I can't live without your) Love and Affection. You can check out Rick Nelson singing a cool song, and special music arranged by Jimmie Haskell, in part 3 of this episode. Also of note - James Burton plays guitar with Ricky's band for this show and on bass, John Hartford, who was part of the O Brother Where Art Thou team of bluegrass songwriters that just cleaned up at the 2002 Grammy Awards. Plus - some pretty hilarious commercials - my favorite is for Palmolive Gold soap, where stinky people are advised - Don't wait to be told - you need Palmolive Gold.

34. Dubious Lampoonery - Truth in Advertising

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel presents Doobious Lampoonery, some short video parodies from a 1977 film called American Raspberry. The list of stars in this film is seemingly endless. Check out IMDB for a full listing. The series - Doobious Lampoonery contains adult situations, adult language and some brief nudity. As such, it is recommended for adults only. The fifth clip in this 7 pack is called Truth in Advertising. The fist PSA is too funny - and yes, so true. The spoof on the laundry detergent Reality Testing was very funny - until she was dead in the dryer. Oh my! Royce D. Applegate is the Miracle White Announcer and Laura Fanny plays the unsuspecting laundry mat customer. The final comedy bit skewering the Is it Live or is it Memorex campaign is very disturbing on a lot of levels.

35. Dubious Lampoonery - Women's Products

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel presents Doobious Lampoonery, some short video parodies from a 1977 film called American Raspberry. The list of stars in this film is seemingly endless.

The sixth clip in this 7 pack is called Woman's Products. Lisa Allen (Joanna Cassady), a spokesperson for Clampex Pontoons describes the miraculous maze of womenhood. A very weird fake ad. Followed by a spoof on the Sears DieHard battery, that powers an electric execution. Morning Mist - in two natural fragrances. The Sperm Bank piece is a quite disturbing since science has come a long way and the premise of of deposit as comedy is just creepy.

36. Folgers TV Commercial w/ Mrs. Olson

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Folgers Coffee TV Commercial with the marital counselor extraordinaire - Mrs. Olson. Yes - Folgers is Mountain Grown, the richest kind of coffee - but there's no mention of Juan Valdez, who came later. There's trouble brewing between a wife and her butthead husband at the weber grill because darn it, she just can't make a decent cup of coffee. Call in the lawyers... oh no, a better idea - let's call in Mrs. Olson. This commercial is a classic!

37. Ford TV Commercial

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic long form Ford infommercial for 1960. And oh yes, what a year it was. Check out the rides coming out as new. Back when you could adjust your carb, no fuel injection... it was fun tto work on a car. Good times... good times.

A dolphin named Nellie, who looks like Flipper - tests out a few early models at Marine World in Florida. The show was filmed in Miami on March 1960. Nancy Sinatra also stars and would later star with Elvis in Speedway.

39. Heinz Pickles TV Commercial

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Heinz Pickle TV Commercial. Many years before the memorable Heinz slow ketchup commercials, they offered these ads for their pickles. This one features a lady who goes whacko when she gets a soggy pickle at a fine restaurant. While it would be easy to put in some kind of snappy presidential campaign comments between John Kerry (married to Teresa Heinz Kerry) vs. George Bush - i will leave that to others. Just enjoy the commercial and watch the old lady lose it in the restaurant. She should have just shove it and let it go. hahaha. Sorry, couldn't resist.

40. I Like Ike - Presidential Campaign ad

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a wonderful blast from the past, from 1952 - the I Like Ike presidential campaign ad for Dwight D. Eisenhower, who served two terms (1953-1961) as President of the United States. This ad is a less than slick cartoon with some terrific caricatures. Ike was the 34th President and served as Supreme Commander for US troops on D-Day, the massive beach landing on the French coast that led to the end of World War II. He also served as head of NATO forces in 1951 before being aproached by Republican officials who urged him to run for President. During the Cold War, he worked hard to achieve peace during a time when the world was struggling with the terrors of Communism which were spreading fast and threatening democracies across the globe. He prosposed that the US and the Soviets exchange military information but was rebuffed. However meetings were held and the talks helped reduce tensions. Finally - we can also thank Ike for the US interstate highway system and the impact that had on our ability to travel as well as the positive economic consequences of increased interstate commerce. Yep - Dwight D. Eisenhower not only seemed like a decent fellow, I bet he was a good man too. The tone of this political ad from 50 years ago is in sharp contrast to the ads we suffer through today - and we hope that the people who make these ads gain some insight for future presidential campaign themes.

41. James Dean PSA for Driving Safety

Description: James Dean in an ironic PSA (public service announcement) for driving safety with Gig Young. A disinterested Dean tells young kids to drive safely and that the life you might save, could be his. (Dean was killed in a terrible car wreck in his Porsche 550 Spyder, which was a convertible sports car. He had already received a ticket for speeding that same day!) I believe this was made for the California Highway Patrol - probably as part of a plea bargain to get out of another speeding ticket. Dean was killed by a fellow named Turnipseed - see the James Dean Story, a documentary on LikeTelevision, for more on the story.

42. Kelloggs Rice Krispies TV Commercial

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Kelloggs Cereal TV Commercial for Rice Krispies that introduces the power trio of snap, crackle and pop! Called Breakfast Pals - the 3 heros fight off soggy cereal demons in a Fleischer animation mixed with real world footage of two young boys. This commercial is historic in many ways - the introduction of the three lads - and of course the cool use of mixed media. Plus - it is pretty weird - and kind of reminds me of the Winky the Watchman Cartoon made for dentists. A cult classic!

43. Ken-L Ration Dog Food

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Classic TV channel proudly presents a terrific Ken-L Ration Dog Food commercial that aired on the Adventures of the Nelson Family, (Ozzie and Harriet).

45. Kool Shake - Classic TV Commercials

46. Last Man on Earth, The

Description: The Last Man on Earth was origianlly released in Italy as L'Ultimo uomo della Terra, and later redubbed in English as The Last Man on Earth. Starring Vincent Price, this is a terrific movie from 1964 based on Richard Matheson's classic Sc-Fi novel, I am Legend. A deadly virus (actually a bacillus, a rod shaped bacterium - like Bacillus anthracis, a.k.a. Anthrax) destroys most of the human population, turning people into horrible vampire zombie creatures who feed off of human blood. Vincent Price is a scientist trying to stay alive. He searches for a cure, destroys the monsters, and finds himself as the last real man on Earth. This film clearly inspired George Romero who directed the classic - Night of the Living Dead. In addition, Matheson's I am Legend was also the inspiration for Omega Man, with Charleton Heston. There is also a rumor of a remake of this classic, but the original will be hard to beat. We loved this film, and bet you will too!

47. Marilyn Monroe Classic TV Commercial

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Classic TV channel proudly presents Marilyn Monroe doing a classic tv commercial for Union Oil of California, (Unocal).

No. This is not Kelloggs Corn Flakes...The Battle Creek company, this is a cereal from General Mils. The commerical features a snappy jingle (that kinda sounds like New Country - HA!) and a goof on the classic painting American Gothic by Grant Wood - that features the farmer and his wife hooting and dancing for their breakfast cereal. A funny classic commercial.

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Noxzema TV Commercial for their shaving cream - Noxzema medicated comfort shave.

53. Oldsmobile Classic TV Commercial

This tv commercial is also a cartoon, animated by the greats at Fleischer Brothers studio, the same fellows who brought us Popeye, Betty Boop and Superman in the early days. The commercial is a long form presentation - probably initially released in theaters to play before the main feature. Parts of it are quite cheeky - especially for the day. There's a peeping tom character, and this line - you can go as far as you like with me, in my merry oldsmobile. Somehow i am not sure how one would measure mileage - ha!

The music swells and the jingle begins like this:
Hey, have you heard the crazy new way.
To send a message today
It flashed on a screen to quick to see
But still you get it subliminally. YIKES! I am not sure if this ad is more disturbing than Pat Boone's rendition of Little Richard's Tuti Fruiti - but the fact that i am comparing the two events should give you an idea of why this classic tv commercial is such a gem.
