Sunday Fun: The Great Stan Freberg

After the tornadoes and flooding of last week I thought it would be fun to take a break. 

I've always been a Johnny Carson fan and when I saw one of his old (1960's) shows on YouTube, I watched. Among his guests last night was the great Stan Freberg. He was known for his wacky, and highly effective, television commercials (among other things). For those of you who have never seen one, here are a couple of treats. Please note: in that era, 60 second TV commercials were the norm.

Meatballs!


Soup!


A Commercial For Advertising on Radio

Stan produced comedy albums, radio comedy serials (who can forget "Chickenman"?) and far more. He passed away in 2015.
