Cartoons Celing Commercials, Vol. 2 (Ed Finn, 1991). [Category: Commercial]

Volume 2 features more animated commercials and more pitches by cartoon stars. This one is not quite as fun as Volume 1––there just aren't as many good moments. Gets 25 extra points for the same stuff I gave points for in Volume 1.


Highlights:

  • "Apple Jacks will not be sold to bullies!" Oh yeah? I would wonder how many kids took foolish risks and got beaten up because of this commercial, except I heavily doubt any kid bought this.
  • BUCKY BEAVER WARNING!! Yes! For only an empty Ipana Toothpaste carton, you can get your own Bucky Beaver pin-up! I was just imagining a certain spouse of mine whose room this would look swell in, when unfortunately they announced the offer expired in 1956. So I had to get him a copy of Curse of the Demon instead.
  • "Beefaroni!! Beefaghetti!!" If you're too young to know what Zorak and Moltar were arguing about, you need this tape.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
