Posted in Flashback Friday, Nostalgia

#FlashbackFriday is GRRREAT!

I’m convinced less “r’s” make it less annoying.

Try to prove me wrong on this.  TRY!

Anyway, previously on Throwback Thursday


People with hidden faces and “fake” names confess to their love of Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes.

Today’s dip into the archives goes back to what I’m assuming is the 1960s (and possibly the 1950s).  We have two commercials featuring the cartoon tiger with a love for sugary cereal greatness (I didn’t emphasize it!) featured here, coming from the archives of 1001 Classic Commercials.

The first commercial celebrates the Year of the Tiger, with Tony the Tiger’s hometown welcoming him back.  So…the jungle let him go?


I find this claim hard to believe.

Eight essential vitamins?  Are four of these “vitamins” four different types of sugar?

The second commercial is Tony the Tiger jumping out of a perfectly good airplane…with his son in tow.


All in the name of Frosted Flakes!

No harm will come to you, should you hit play below.

I hope you enjoyed this second part of a nutritious breakfast to wrap up your week.

Flashback Friday, and older sibling Throwback Thursday, will return next week.

But until then…

I’m not going to say it!
