Do you remember this jolly cartoon ad for Puppy Chow voiced by Sterling Holloway? Do you remember thinking "When did Pooh Bear get a puppy?"
The link I've given you is part of a YouTube compilation of classic pet food ads from the 1970's and '80s. Those were prime years for your friendly curator (hush now), but now that I look back at these ads I'm fascinated at how my petfeeding practices have changed. I mean, if I want to gravy it up for Briar these days, he gets a dash of nice plain broth on the best canned food we can afford. But that's just me. And goodness knows it's been a while since I bought 9-Lives for the cat staff (they will eat only ONE variety of only ONE brand of canned food), though I never tire of the snarky glory of Morris the Cat.
Oh hey, vintage Muppets dog food ad! When did Kermit become a dachshund?
