Stan Freberg and Ray Bradbury (yes, THAT Ray Bradbury) hawking Sunsweet Pitted Prunes:
And now, an extra-special treat; something I've been looking for on YouTube forever and IT'S FINALLY HERE!! Mom, this one's for you:
This is the infamous "Lemon Cream Pie" sketch from Great American Dream Machine
. If you're a member of the Most Hated Generation, your mom probably bought those Banquet cream pies. Mine did, and I grew up in a house where cookies meant vanilla wafers and we dreamt of Twinkies because we weren't allowed to have them. After this sketch ran on TV, you could pick up these pies at the Finast for a quarter because no one wanted them anymore.
