My last post shared a cute little booklet, “Don’t Buy Cookies from an Aardvark.”
I didn’t know any backstory about the booklet until reader Arielle Masters contacted me. She said there had been a TV commercial with this theme, but that she couldn’t find a clip online.
There’s a challenge I can’t resist!
After some searching, I found that Arielle was correct. Here’s the full commercial from 1976:
In fact, this is one commercial in a series that has animals pushing sub-standard cookies, including a rooster,
and a panda.
There are many vintage cookie commercials online, why not share them with your troop?
