McDonald's (I'm so happy they got rid of those creepy giant googly eyes on their characters) 16. "Schoolhouse Rock" End Credits 17. ABC Station ID 18. The Four Bears Waterpark (From what info I could find, this was open from 1983-2004, and the owner apparently had connections to the mob. The google satellite view of the area shows it is completely gone and the only thing remaining is an abandoned parking lot and a bunch of empty lots surrounding the lake that appear under construction. Sad that a place where kids could have fun on a lake is now abandoned) 19. Promo for "Entertainment Tonight" 20. "We'll Return After These Messages" Commercial Bumper 21.

Promo for "Ewoks", "Droids", "The 13 Ghosts Of Scooby Doo" and "The Littles" (This was advertising the premiere of the two Star Wars cartoons. "13 Ghosts" was a new show too, and the last "classic" Scooby-Doo show produced) 24.

Comments

Barber of Seville : McDonald's commercials were better during the 80's.

Totally Amazing : The kids now are really missing out on real entertainment. The commercials were just as great as the shows.

EDK ReefMeister : I liked the Melting Pot song. We need this today.

Glitterbomb45 : Why did they get rid of Saturday morning cartoons? There was nothing cozier than waking up and eating a bowl of cereal in front of the tube while mom and dad were still sleeping. The cartoons were innocent and so were the commercials.

darthfurious80 : its funny, as a kid I HATED watching the commercials. Now that I'm an adult, I enjoy watching them. Brings back memories of toys, things, places, and a simpler era!

Chesha Hodge : So, I am a child of the 80s and know that during this time, we were inundated with commercials for processed foods and sugary sweets. The fortunate thing is many households still consumed in moderation, however, this is the pinnacle where the downfall-snowball sits. This was the BEST time though!

A Mac : Happy, Happy 600! This post is right on time! As always, I'm spending my Saturday Morning watching 80's Saturday morning commercials and eating cereal. Can't say enough how much I appreciate your work in posting these commercials to your channel. Thank You!

justin brown : These were great, yet it pains me to no longer be a child.

Drew L. : People ask me how I can have a 30 year old commercial jingle stuck in my head. By golly, THIS is how!!! :)

Adam C : I always did like "The great American Melting Pot". And me and my brother would cut grass for money to get EVERY He Man figure. Wish we would have kept them.lol.

Tonya D. Manning : I miss all these wonderful shows and commercials, and the simple way things were!!

Yvette Orozco : Omg...The Littles!!! That brings back a lot of memories!!

m s : "we're the computer generation" hits me riiiight there (xennial 1980)

Roadd Jack2 : tyvm for throwing in some cartoon openings as a nice bonus!!

yusef immanuel : They really overacted in the 80s😂😂. I miss the 80s

wildsmiley : I remember the day in 1985 when my mom brought me one of those Burger King He-Man cups. I was He-Man crazy back then.

Anderson Helms : Love the turbo teen clip at the end. Truly unsettling.

unnamed715 : Turbo Teen's transformation is the most horrifying thing I have ever seen.

Roadd Jack2 : miss these mcdonaldsland story ads they were fun to watch

ScratStitch : The Great American Melting Pot feels so timely today. Great batch of ads! Congrats on reaching 600 volumes!

DanZero77 : A new fall season on Saturday Morning was always the highlight of the year for me. I had some of those Crack Ups they were really cool.

Randy J : Alright - who won the $1,000,000 from Captain Crunch? I mean did they ever promote the winners of these things? - like a photo of the winner? I never ever ever heard of a winner from these things, or, say, the Mc Donald's flexi record contest.

Yoda Pagoda : Congratulations on 600! I’m happy to say I’ve watched every one. Fruit Roll-Ups…my mom would never buy these. I didn’t get to eat one until several years later, and was underwhelmed. That Schoolhouse Rock clip…wow. It really is what we all are! “She-Ra Doll Sold Separately.” I thought she was an action figure? OMG “Computer Critters” that’s so incredible! The Future Blob beat me senseless and told me to be a bus driver. Those ‘Pump’ toothpastes didn’t work very well, seems like a lot was wasted. Needless to say, they didn’t last all that long. I couldn’t get over the fact that Ovaltine wasn’t a new product, at least according to my mom. O.G. Readmore was great, I noticed at the library looking for his book suggestions were already checked out. Cookie Crisp, what a bit of marketing genius! That M&M’s commercial was classic! I still consider the green ones 'homers.'

NoctournalDonut : Happy 600th vid! (Or in this case, Happy 600th for the 80's section?) :D

Aurora M : The kid with all the catchphrases in that Hot Wheels commercial was Robbie in Poltergeist.

vicious0111 : I'm surprise they don't air back. The Ewokes and Droids cartoons with all the Star Wars craze going on as a tribute! Computer Critters were talking about touch screen already?! During the 80's?! Interesting, how the Nestle Bunny can have his beverage drink. But, the Trix Bunny cannot eat his own cereal! Ironic isn't?

Laura Somebody : I remember wanting that She-Ra doll so much when I was a kid 🙄😆 It's crazy to see all these and listen to the songs again 😏 thanks for this!

Don McCollough : First touchscreen PC was from HP in 1983.

Melissa Cooper : I miss Alpha-Bits cereal.

Rob Camp : Yeah kid, have fun brushing your teeth with all that dirt, bark, and paint chips in your aqua fresh.

sdmc222 : I was in the Army and spent almost all of the 80's in Europe so its weird, I don't remember most of these. All we had was AFN, one tv channel lol. Was culture shock coming back.

Kemruss : This and part 2 are literally my ground zero of childhood Saturday morning cartoon watching. Would have been 6 at the time, going into 1st grade in a couple of days. Used to love The Littles. Plus switching back and forth between the networks to catch the shows I liked, eating a salad bowl filled with Fruity Pebbles. What an awesome time to be a kid. Only thing missing was one of the Shriner Hospital, "Ounce of Prevention" PSA's

Shelly Hebert : M&M’s...when they didn’t have the red ones!

dandanthetaximan : Saturday morning cartoons... woohoo!

Bill Seipel : Frostra and Catra? LOL. Her 'Catty' side? Wow. And how bout that theme song? "The fate of the world is in this hands of these beautiful girls"

Rocky Rabbit : I actually remember the Great American Pot song from elementary school Also the voice of that raccoon from that Computer Critters cartoon sounds like a very, very young Rob Paulson.

yusakug : Happy 600th! And I only remember the 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo because it introduced me to Vincent Price.

LordNimon : Your video descriptions are as insightful and amusing as ever. Grats on 600!

HRTVFan2 : Congratulations on the 600th 1980s commercial block upload

Bilbo : Okay but where WAS Cap'n Crunch?

Hidden Ian : I could've died a happy man having never known the terrifying body-horror of "Turbo Teen"; but no longer ...

Scott Taylor : grew up a 80's child remember these commercials so much i can say some of the commercials especially the cereal commercials lol.

Andrew Frank : To a dumb kid like me, Corn Flakes with a bit of sugar wasn't the same as Frosted Flakes. No wonder my Mother was so exasperated with me. Sorry Mom!

Barber of Seville : Ah yes, the cereal wars of the 80's. I went through so many kinds as a kid it's almost bewildering.

DreamDancer82 : "Since 1985 the future has grown from a manageable small angry cloud into a cat 5 hurricane" You'd better believe it, baby! Especially emphasis on the "cat," if you know what I mean (meow!) I have two "Zack of All Trades" on two different tapes from 1987, and I never knew until this moment those were Luther Vandross. Huh. You learn something new every day.

DecKrash : Whoa! Zack of All Trades? Been awhile since I've seen that! Luther Vandross did a wonderful job with those commercials.

Anna Bowen : A school house rock music vid is in there too? Awesome!!! I like it!

The Resistance : I remember almost every one of these commercials! P.S. FIG NEWTONS, NEVER WERE and NEVER, EVER WILL BE "COOKIES"!!! #TheLies

Nakama's Warrior : I remember Four Bears Water Park. Golly...The memories. The Golden Age.
