#ThrowbackThursday Wants To Make Your Money Grow

It also hopes to take your money and take sensible risks with investing it.

Do other Throwback Thursdays do this for you?

No, I think not!

I also don’t take your money.

That’s the difference between me and the “others.”

After spending time in the archives of the 1980s, combing through kid-friendly commercials we all know and love, I’m dipping back (for today) into the archives of 1001 Classic Commercials, as those have some interesting memories of their own.

Not necessarily my memories, but other people’s memories!


In like a lion, out like a lamb.


Even on Wall Street.


But what about in like a lion…and proceeding through things like a lion?



Does Leo do this for MGM?  I think not!

Well, that’s what Dreyfus Fund Inc. is all about (well, they’re also about catchy music as the lion walks), and when you click play, you’ll have to try to figure it all out.

Seriously folks, I’ll never say today’s commercials make no sense.

Go on, click play!

Ask this lion for your free prospectus!


So here’s the good news – Dreyfus is still around today!

The company was established in 1951, and this ad (from 1965), was from when they went public.  Dreyfus was one of the first money management firms to tap into the stock market for additional capital.  Today, they’re a subsidiary of BNY Mellon (a merger of Bank of New York and Mellon Financial).

So how do you like that?  Something I’m writing about still exists to this very day!

That’s awesome!

And tomorrow, Flashback Friday will be about yet another successful company that is still around today.

Can you believe this?!

Have a great Thursday!
