I personally laughed at how they flatout said "please buy our cornflakes!"

Also, the common gag in most Weetabix commercials is that once someone's eaten Weetabix, the other side is clear to lose--the equivalent of Popeye's spinach. That's why Elmer starts panicking after seeing that Bugs has had some.

They do sell it in the US nowadays. Kroger's in my area has some.

Here's an interesting experiment by animator Bob Jaques, who took the 1938 Willard Bowsky Popeye cartoon, "Big Chief Ugh-Amugh-Ugh", and re-edited it, to place a couple of animated scenes that were done as a single piece but split apart in the final release back together.

Here's the cartoon as it was released to theaters and run on TV for the past 55 years.

Here's the cartoon with the edited scenes reattached by Bob.

A 1984 radio shirt store commercial featuring The Jetsons.

Note though, that it doesn't feature George O'Hanlon, Daws Butler, or Mel Blanc. I guess hiring all three would have bankrupted the station. Instead they got Billy West (in what must have been one of his first voiceover roles gigs ever). Funny how his voice hasn't really changed much over the years.

He does a decent Spacely actually.

"I must defend the remarkable prescience of the Hanna-Barbera writers. In the early 1960s, they dreamed up a futuristic world that seemed impossibly beyond our reach. Their creativity predicted the microwave oven, slide walks, smart phones and robot teachers. All these inventions are now routine realities of the 21st century." - Janet Waldo (LA Times, 2011)
