    POP commercials from YouTube

    I have a feeling some of you folks know of others, but I just stumbled upon this POP commercial for Angella and Glimmer in a compilation clip of '80s TV ads. It's at the beginning, right after the "Pink Panther and Sons" bumper:

    I never got to eat OJs as a kid! Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want a time machine!!!

    I also want to go back to when I was too young to know/care about the nutritional value of McDonald's food. Every time I treat myself (which is sparingly) I read the guide and think to myself... wow... this food is awful! How is it even legal to sell someone a burger meal with that much fat/sodium!!!???!!!!?

    PS: And I want dolls...

    Always happy to share.

    Also, COOL commercials, Tally! The Europeans were SO lucky. The French and Dutch commercials have MUCH higher production values than the US ones. They got treated like the awesome US MOTU ones!

    By the way, isn't one of the girls from the Panini commercial a celebrity? I think I remember someone saying that before (possibly you).

    Ah man, I always loved the POP commercial with Heather O'Rourke, the animation was incredible and it makes the mask look cool. The one with the free mystery doll has the great Judith Barsi who was an incredible child actor. I love the look of happiness on her face when she yells "FREE?!?!" It is really great to see these commercials, thanks for shairing, Darkspecter.

    Cool! I didn't know that little girl was in other stuff. Also, your welcome.

    I had a good chuckle when watching/posting them because they're all pretty much the same song, with changed lyrics. They totally pulled and Elton John!

    Oh yes, Judith Barsi from the mystery doll spot was in many a toy commercial in the 80's. She was even in one of the Jaws films. Unfortunately her tale does not have a happy ending. As the story goes when she was 10, I think, her abusive father ended her life. She had gotten the attention of Hollywood and supposedly he was jealous of his daughter. She had a million dollar smile.

    Sorry about the sad story. So, ah, yeah Elton John, Sad Songs Say So Much...

    Check out this '85 commercial with actress Liliane Clune. I've never seen this before.

    Wow - that last one was so very boring until the very end! WHAMMO! Seriously, though - why was she explaining the toys and premise as though were we all morons? She even did the classic "taking glasses off while explaining science" move. Yawn.

    The Europeans were SO lucky. The French and Dutch commercials have MUCH higher production values than the US ones.
    Are there any European commercials posted here? I'd be interested in seeing them. Honestly, the She-Ra commercials are more funny than anything else. Poor Catra. First the "meowrrr!" girl and then "outshined again". Hee!

    It's a shame that we don't have pencil drawings or cels for the She-Ra book that they used cartoon animation for in the commercial. That animation was different from the Filmation cartoon series for TV.

    Wow, that is a lovely cel. I have seen scans of Catra used for that ad but I don't remember having seen scans of She-Ra & Swifty. I love Filmation style but I like the animation in that ad too.
