More Tink on the Small Screen

If all of you out there are like me, you're amazed that there were that many commercials back in the 50's containing Disney characters. Here are some more I haven't seen posted up anywhere before for your viewing pleasure. They appear to be from the holiday season, perhaps in either 1954 or 1955 I'd guess. Be sure to watch both clips as they contain an intro section to the Disneyland television show with all of the sponsors.
"A new cap that unscrews." Now, this has left me wondering what other kind of caps there would have been on the peanut butter jar. Did some just pull off or something? And "Fruit Cocktail Eggnog Pie". How bad does that sound?!

Peter Pan Blocks

Moving back to some Disney merchandise, here's a nice piece from the 1950's. It's a set of Peter Pan blocks, as you can see, and on every side they make up one of these lovely pictures you see in the third photo. Each of he photos tells a bit of the story as well. My personal favorite is the mermaids! I love these pictures as they remind me of the Little Golden Book illustrations of my childhood. So fun and vibrant! I would have been very happy to play with these as a kid in the 50s!

A New Old Commercial Featuring Jiminy Cricket

Here's a very fun and recently uploaded little 1950s advertisment featuring Jiminy Cricket. This one's animation of Jiminy is far more traditional than the other that has been on YouTube for some time now. Join the "sipping and singing society" and enjoy!
